Meet the Yellow Team

Our friendly ambassadors will be available to support, advise and welcome you to Kingston University, so your first few days here are as easy as possible. You won't miss them in their bright yellow t-shirts!

You'll find them at:

  • the airport waiting for you
  • the International Arrivals Lounge;
  • international orientation; and
  • all the social events organised for international students.

They are all very excited to meet you, and those who are current Kingston University students will share with you their own experiences of studying here.

Here are a few of the happy faces you'll be seeing soon!

My top tip(s) for new students: "Take the opportunity to go to the events Kingston puts on for international students, such as the Sunday lunch or the tour of central London. They're a great way to meet other people who are also adjusting to life in a new country, they help you get to know the area, and they're lots of fun!"
