Our induction programme is compulsory for all students, as the information received will ensure a successful start to your time at Kingston.

Welcome Week begins on Monday 19 September 2016, and is an essential part of your transition into university life. The week includes a series of important interactive talks and information sessions introducing you to the University. On certain days you will have your timetabled course induction, while on other days you can choose the welcome events and activities that you wish to attend and to tailor your first week with us.

I chose Kingston because it had a range of interesting courses which suited me. The fact that I can do a one year placement as a part of my study and gain some valuable experience very much appealed to me.

Farhat, Biomedical Science studentFarhat, Biomedical Science student

I have always aspired to be a doctor, hence why I chose biomedical science, however I have also started to think about a career in research as well.
