Most helpful review

Kingston Uni is incredibly out of date in multiple ways. The facilities are poor,the lecturers/support services are poor, the accommodation is poor. Shockingly enough I left as soon as I could. Avoid.

I would not recommend this university to my greatest enemy. As an MS sufferer, female and black individual, I truly could not have asked for a worse university. It is with my deepest regret that I selected this university. For going on two years now I have been used as a slave by over a dozen schools, doing all the marking, all the planning, friendly to everyone and every child just to be told on the very last day that I have failed, or that after teaching 3 lessons, the students have not progressed. Biggest mistake of my life.

I was only there as a post grad for a year so had less exposure to SU and socieites, but staff were very friendly and helpful also willing to go the extra mile when a deadline is looming. Library at my campus was superb though a little remote but they had free parking for students available.

I did a BA honours in Graphic Design and I would not recommend this university at all. The tutors obviously have favourites and unless you are one of them or unless you are caucasian you are very likely to receive a low final grade, even if your work is exceptional. How they managed to get away with this is beyond me but lucky you find work based on your portfolio and not your grade for graphic design. The building and facilities are very outdated, and there is hardly ever any space in the studio to work, even if there is it is very crammed and noisy and awkward. There are hardly any lectured for this course, you go in maybe once a week to see your tutor and all they give you is advice. They do not teach you any new skills, they expect you to already know it all. So basically you are paying 9k a year for opinion on your work.

I would not recommend this university for engineering to anyone. The university is unorganized as the lessons keep changing (sometimes 10 mins just before we are suppose to have the lessons) The campus has very small library with approximately ~12 computer in there The tutorial can sometimes be a waste of time as the teacher sometimes does not appear and if they do, they will just give question paper and tell you do just do it as they will just show us the awnser paper at the end

Appalling university. Not a care in the world about supporting hard working students. The general acceptance is of students who are using degrees to laze about until they have to work. Those of us who are committed really suffer in class as a result. You complain to various sources and are simply told that they know but there's nothing they can do about it.

The University itself is pretty poor, its teaching staff have little interest in its students and the facilities such as the computer rooms and canteens are far too small and forever crowded. The main focus of their marketing is the Penrhyn Road Campus, leaving Knights Park forgotten, which is probably why that campus is in such poor condition and forever cold in winter.

Knights Park where all the art subjects are based is fantastic. Brilliant facilities for creating work, although the canteen and bar could be bigger and cheaper. Unfortunatly the University places its focus on its main campus Penryhn Road which seems to leave Knights Park at the bottom of the pile. Some Knights Park courses have an amazing reputation but the University does not boast about this, meaning they're hidden by a fairly average University. In an idea world, Knights Park will one day become and independent Art School (which rumours suggest will happen in the next few years)
