Life as an international scholar

Being awarded a scholarship is a great achievement that will not only help you financially but also expose to you to so much more during and after your studies, offering you a rich student experience like no other.

At Kingston we're committed to giving our scholars the best experience. From the moment you arrive you'll be well taken care of. In addition to all other services that the University offers its international students, you'll belong to our special scholars group and we'll get to know you during your time here to establish a strong relationship with you both during and after your studies at Kingston.

The other benefits

As one of our scholars you'll belong to a group of some of our best students, with access to senior staff and special events, giving you the opportunity to benefit from many other aspects. These include:

  • attending our annual scholars' events at historical locations often attended by senior staff, academics and the Mayor of Kingston upon Thames;
  • boosting your career prospects through valuable networking opportunities;
  • belonging to our special alumni group for scholars and meeting other scholars from around the world;
  • impressing future employers with your award; and
  • being a valued student ambassador for Kingston with opportunities to contribute to some of our marketing material and in-country activities.

Supporting you

Kingston University offers a range of support services to help you settle into university life and make the most of your time here.

We also have extra support for our scholarship students, to help provide an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life, these include:

  • a range of free social events throughout the year, exclusively for our scholars. In previous years we've held events at Tower Bridge and Hampton Court (King Henry VIII's 16th-century palace).
