Most helpful review

Although not being able to have the full experience in my second year, Kingston was amazing first year and i wish I had taken up more opportunities they offered and been more involved. Facilities are amazing with a 5 story library! I am studying fine art and art history, we have our own studios to paint in along the riverside which are gorgeous. The university has been really good at keep students informed and offering support over the pandemic

Overall experience has been poor for my first year. Kingston did not prepare well for online teaching and many students have been left to teach themselves. I assume standards will improve when we return to campus for the 2021/22 year.

I go to Kingston School of Art and I really enjoy my time here. I have been to a few social/club events before the pandemic and they were great fun. The tutors are very accommodating and the staff is friendly. I havent been able to participate in the wider scheme of Kingston University due to the pandemic which is why I gave fewer stars in these area.

Kingston University did not grant any refund to me when I found out their classes are only 2 days a week and house facilities are so poor that to deal with drainage, I had to resort to measures myself especially during the lockdown with zero access to any tools. My mental health crashed during the 4 months I was indoors and the university did not compensate a penny to me despite asking nicely a hundred times since during the time, my father also lost his job. I’m no millionaire, Kingston University. Besides the one instructor I had, Richard, everyone else was way below subpar in communication which is why when I asked for a refund of at least 50%, they said I had passed my deadline for asking for a refund. This university only takes your money and doesn’t give you any quick response. They asked me to produce industry-level standard from projects when they should have mentioned that prior to accepting my enrollment. This university is nothing but a scam to those seeking placement.

Great university, I studies my BA here and loved it so much I stayed here to do my MA. Easy to get between campuses and halls of residence with the university bus system, however the halls of residences are a bit far if you have to walk in bad weather. Lecturers are knowledgeable and find creative ways to deliver lectures. The construction on site can be annoying, but should be finished soon. Cafés on site are plenty and great for grabbing food or a drink between classes. The Kingston Language scheme is amazing for those who want to learn another language, and there are plenty of opportunities to join clubs, society, to volunteer and for student jobs. Felt well supported, even during this covid pandemic.

I chose to do my MA in Music Education in Kingston and I couldn't be more disappointed. The practice rooms are completely forgotten with old pianos and no heating. From all the professors we have, only one was really trying, the rest dont care, dont explain and always leave us with questions. One professor alone though, can't handle this whole master. The courses are completely unorganised, not providing any new knowledge, you have to do all the work alone and professors dont explain exactly what they need in the assignments. They leave everything for last minute -group projects, volunteering programms to get experience etc- which makes everyone frustrated. Also, they don't give you a QTS which with only this you can teach music in a school. So what's the point of having a music education's master and not being able to work as a teacher? I wish I knew these before, I feel like I wasted my money. I wish I knew all these before hand

MA Museums and Galleries: Save yourself... move on.. cancel this university from your list.... save your money and youth on something other great universities in London or elsewhere. We have to work with dead/small/unknown museums( no galleries at all) in areas we have to travel a lot (i.e extra expenses). Courses are very new and unorganised, doesn't make you employable. Facilities are out of date ( the uni is trying to be sexy with the new townhouse using their international students' money when they should really spend that money to get there timetable correct, or get someone to answer their students' quires instead of directing you all around without answering a single question).

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.

Student Review: 1 /5
By On 5th January 18

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)
