What our students say

What our students say

"The real asset of the University is the lecturers. They strike a perfect balance of real-world and academic knowledge, both of which engaged and challenged me throughout my degree. Without them, I would not have had the confidence to purse a masters degree before embarking on my teaching career."
Charlotte, former student

"Not only were skills given to you, but lecturers ensured your understanding before addressing a new skill. There was never a silly idea; only those that could be extended or developed. Help is always available, you don't even need to ask for it! Your tutors become your friends and your lecturers offer you support wherever needed. I will truly miss Kingston University, it's helped me become the teacher I am today."
Louise, former student, who teaches in Year 4
