I have to agree with Nasii below - pretty much every aspect of this place is a nightmare. And they are on the brink of collapse. I would advise anyone thinking about it to stay well clear.

Just completed a Masters course and it was great (although very challenging at times). There were many strikes with the tutors, although our tutor didn't strike, so we were lucky. I guess the one thing to remember is that a masters course is all about self-study. So as long as your willing to put in the work, it will be fine. From what I have heard, it's quite difficult for a Home student to get into a Masters course at Kingston, so make sure you apply other universities, just in case you don't get in.

I study at Penrhyn road campus, part of Kingston university. They have recently built townhouse library and its architecture is quite excellent! Which includes study rooms, computers all around the library, a lounge area/cafeteria, an information section for any personal quieries and a balcony on the top floor with a stunning view of the location. I study psychology and the professors make my lectures fun and interesting. I specifically love how they are very flexible with their office hours so that I can reach out if I am facing any troubles within my course. The university also has a great student union that offers activities, events and societies to join and collaborate with other students. Overall the facility, staff and student union have great value.

Overall Kingston is a great uni to study at! The library is my favourite place to be in with there being social and quiet zones!! There are tons of great facilities and the staff are beyond helpful. There are so many opportunities that the university gives us in terms of placements, studying abroad and graduate jobs! They have such a wide variety of clubs and societies to join to make new friends!

Overall a poor university experience. I highly recommend NOT going unless you want to be scammed and have your money wasted. This university operates as a business. They do not care about their students and you will be disappointed. Staff and classes are hit or miss, personal tutors don't reply to emails, students are given very little support, and the other students here are anti-social unless you are already in their group. You won't have much of a social life. The halls and bus system are abysmal. Take a workshop class if you have the chance; lectures are pretty boring and depends upon staff expertise, education, and personality. There aren't really any job or internship opportunities or if they are, they're snatched up immediately. There's also a healthy dose of nepotism here. You will have a better chance of succeeding if you have connections. You will regret your time here. The university is in debt and will do whatever it can to take your money and improve its ranking.

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.

Very good university, with campuses very developed to students needs. Multiple libraries, labs and various facilities to ensure the students get the most out of their learning. Free uni buses available which make travelling cheaper and easier. Staff easy to contact and very helpful.

Tutor from first year was very unprofessional and have ripped someone’s work from the wall. That’s not how you do crits. She was also unfriendly towards international students as well.

I love the atmosphere and education at Kingston University. I have studied 4 years (BA Architecture) and returned to do my part 2 (MA Architecture), which is sadly coming to an end now. I shall return back for a final year in order to complete my part 3 and become an Architect!

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 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)
