London Eyes: Views from the city from Kingston University archives and special collections

Display

London Eyes is an exhibition looking at aspects of life in the capital through the collections in Kingston University archives. Originally created for London History Day, the exhibition will include items relating to London literature and theatre, and the University's place in the city. Guests will be able to view the exhibition plus extra items that we were not able to include in our display cases, with archives staff on hand to answer questions and provide further information on the fascinating objects included.

Kingston University archives has recently been awarded Archives Service Accreditation, a national standard that recognises excellence in archive services.

Kingston University has a long and proud history of delivering engineering programmes with strong industrial relevance, and producing qualified graduates for the industry for over 70 years - through close collaboration and active engagement with different sectors of the industry as well as professional institutions.

As part of the University's overall development, the engineering provisions have recently been modified in order to develop a distinctive 'Kingston Engineer;' to further enhance interdisciplinary synergies; to create an excellent learning experience; and develop apprenticeships in close collaboration with different sectors of industry and the professional institutions.

With this being the Year of Engineering, come and find out more about Kingston's 'learning by doing' approach, and immerse yourself in engineering. Get hands-on with our latest equipment, learn more about the rise of the drones and discover more about the recent quantity surveying field trip in Dubai.
