Diversity and equality

The University prides itself on embracing diversity and promoting equality. We welcome applications regardless of gender, race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief. For more information, please see our equality page.

Information to assist disabled job applicants can be found in Supporting Disabled Job Applicants (PDF).

Kingston University is proud to have a diverse and varied workforce. At the same time, we are committed to ensuring that we have thoroughly pursued potential applications from resident workers before appointing an overseas candidate. Please refer to the Home Office website for more information. 

Right to work in the UK

If you are successful in your application you will be required to demonstrate your right to work in the UK before you start work with us. Please read our document on the right to work in the UK (PDF) for more information.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) procedure

The University is committed to safeguarding and protecting children and vulnerable groups. The majority of our posts will not require a DBS disclosure and requests will be made in accordance with the eligibility criteria as set out by the Vetting and Barring Scheme.

All applicants will need to disclose any unspent (current) convictions at the outset of the recruitment process. However, roles which require a DBS check and are therefore exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, applicants will need to disclose both unspent and spent convictions.

The University is legally entitled to ask applicants of the details of any spent and unspent conviction.

Our DBS Procedure for Staff (PDF) will ensure a fair process is applied to all our recruitment and is in line with the Rehabilitation of Ex-Offenders Act 1974. Please read the DBS procedure and Recruitment of Ex-Offenders Policy (PDF) for more information.


Kingston University is based across four campuses in and around Kingston upon Thames, a busy riverside town on the borders of London and Surrey. In addition, our Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education is operated jointly with St George's, University of London, which is partly based at their campus in Tooting.
