Student Testimonials

Here at KU, you get the opportunity to be yourself, develop yourself and explore yourself! At the end of it, I will be sure, you will be proud to say #MadeinKingston

When considering other universities in London, the degrees in marketing were simply just that, general marketing - therefore I have appreciated the focused modules on brand development, design and management. I found that Kingston upon Thames was more of a community. I have been fortunate to have made friends from all over the world, opening my eyes to the cultural differences as well as realizing how truly similar we all are.

I chose Kingston University because this tailored course forms the two most important parts of the Civil Engineering Industry. The quality of Teachers available is high in standard. In class and out of class support is high. I have enjoyed my course and have learned many new things especially in terms of my professional and technical development. The level of education was really high and to top standards.
