Message from the Vice-Chancellor

A legacy is a special and lasting way to support Kingston University. It is the sign of an exceptional relationship which recognises the part Kingston has played in your life and the role you can play in its future.

A decision to remember Kingston University in a legacy can make so much possible. Through bursaries and scholarships, a gift in your will can give opportunities to generations of future students to study at Kingston, whatever their background or financial circumstances. You could help with new resources and facilities, support which will be essential for the quality of our teaching in years to come or you could fund projects that innovate and drive industry forward. Alternatively, you could give my successors in the post of Vice-Chancellor the opportunity to direct vital funds towards projects wherever the need is greatest at the time.

Professor Steven SpierPast legacies have helped me to support young people leaving care to attend university and to establish an acclaimed entrepreneurship programme across the University. As a result of alumni generosity and these programmes, hundreds of young people have achieved their potential. I would like my successors to be able to rely on the bequests made today for the benefit of future students and future challenges.

I hope these web pages will be useful to you and will help you make a very special and personal decision. Whatever the amount, I assure you that we appreciate every gift that will help future generations of students and future discovery and achievement at our university.

With heartfelt thanks,

Professor Steven Spier
Acting Vice-Chancellor, Kingston University
