When you join Kingston University you become part of a welcoming, diverse and inclusive community where you will develop an ongoing passion for your subject. Our students benefit from a practice-based, hands-on education informed by innovative research to ensure our graduates have the skills and knowledge required to work in the industry. We are ranked a top 10 London university by the Guardian League table 2019.

We’re located across four teaching campuses, in and around Kingston upon Thames. It’s a lively, student-friendly riverside town neighbouring Hampton Court Palace and two royal parks, perfect for long walks, deer watching, and quiet study time. Better still, Kingston’s on the doorstep of central London, so you’ll find yourself at the heart of the capital within half an hour of hopping on a train.

Our graduates have an unrivalled reputation for starting their own businesses – first or second in the UK for the past eight years - and we encourage all students to take an enterprising approach to their future careers.

We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in areas such as art and design, business, social sciences, computing, healthcare, biological and pharmaceutical sciences, performing arts and engineering. Visit our website to find the right course for you.

Alumni of the university include fashion commentator Caryn Franklin MBE, Glenda Bailey OBE, Editor in Chief at Harpers’ Bazaar, and the movie star Ben Barnes.
