You've come to the right place!

Every year, we create a group page on Facebook to help new students meet others on their course, even before university begins. Keep your eyes on your profile, as once these pages are up and running, I will be posting the links here.

whoop whoop !!! :woo:

Exciting times ahead! You're making me flashback to when I sent my application in!

I'm not sure how long the process takes, but since you've sent it about a week ago, I reckon it would take a while. I will find out and let you know. However, you make have more luck getting through to our Admission team because you're a potential student. You can email them at [email protected].

Let me know how you get on. I'll still be working on getting a response on my end as well.

Applying for the postgraduate course in Product and Furniture Design. Would like to hear the experience from a student from the course!

How challenging is the course? Do they teach the fundamentals like sketching, prototyping and user research? And how well are the industry tie ups ?

Hi anaik28

Great to hear you're thinking of Kingston University for your postgraduate studies!

I'm going to try my best to get a student to give their experience on the course, but in the meantime, if you haven't already, have a look at our course page equipped with information on our placement scheme, videos from our MA show and the Instagram account of the course: https://www.kingston.ac.uk/postgradu...ure-design-ma/

All the best with your application!

I just got an invitation for an interview today! Does anyone know what to bring to the portfolio? (BA Fashion) It says 20 pages maximum, but I already submitted a 20 pages digital portfolio to Kingston before, do I print them out? or it's ok to show them on my iPad? And do I need to bring all the physical works such as the garment I made and my sketchbooks?

AMAZING ! Congrats! When I've been on campus during these interviews I've always seen candidates with physical portfolios so I assume it would be a physical one. HOWEVER, I'd suggest an email to [email protected] to clarify.

AMAZINGGGG!!! Massive congrats to you! :bumps:

Soon, we will be creating a freshers Facebook group where you can join and meet other people on your course! We will also have groups for people staying in one of our Halls of Residence to meet each other virtually before moving in in September! So keep your eyes on our TSR profile to stay updated with that!

If you didn't need an interview for your course, you may be invited to one of our upcoming applicant Experience Days so keep your eye out on your emails as well!

Congrats again
