Application deadline details:
A very supportive environment, with a comforting and lush market town surrounding campus in lovely Surrey. It’s a such a beautiful campus, but if you fancy a bit of excitement, the centre of London's only 20 minutes away – the best of both worlds, really. And there's a really friendly atmosphere, especially with the Student Union who are incredibly helpful, very friendly and considerate. There’s loads going on throughout the year – for one, the food festival hits town just as Freshers gets going, so you can meet your new flatmates and find new and exotic hangover cures!
Kingston university is a great place to study. The environment is lovely and friendly, you will always find someone with common interests and it's very easy to make friends. The Kington town is a huge plus point, it has everything from shopping to food and night life.
