Studying at Kingston
Kingston University has welcomed students from India into many departments, including Business, Law, Science, Engineering and Computing. A number of Indian students have also been awarded our international scholarships in recent years in recognition of their excellent academic abilities and have performed very well on our courses.
Students from India are attracted to Kingston University by its international reputation in teaching quality, supportive learning environment and proximity to London.
You will also be close to the large Indian communities based in London. There are 173,000 Indians living here. If you include British people of Indian origin, the figure reaches 437,000 – 6% of London's population.
The Indian community contributes hugely to London's multicultural vibrancy. You will find:
- many restaurants specialising in regional Indian food – including Punjabi, Gujarati, Goan and Keralan;
- shops selling specialist Indian food and popular newspapers/magazines;
- Asian television and radio programmes, including BBC Asian Network radio; and
- many places to worship including 40 Hindu temples, 25 Sikh temples, 150 mosques and hundreds of churches.
Popular areas for Indian communities to live include Kingston itself, as well as nearby Tooting, Southall and Wembley.
