Clearing helps business management student kickstart dream degree

As his time at school came to a close, Jack Connelly, then 18, was deliberating what to do next. Keen to keep his options open and explore his interests, Jack found himself weighing up what was right for him. Should he undertake an apprenticeship – as many of his friends were doing – or apply to University? In the end, as his study interests were varied, the broader range of subjects offered within a degree course was what swung the balance for Jack and he decided to apply for a business management degree.

When he saw his A-level results, though, the 19 year old realised he was facing a setback as he hadn't achieved his target grades. A call to the Kingston University Clearing hotline, however, quickly alleviated his worries and got him back on the right track. The Clearing staff had been extremely reassuring and helpful, Jack said. "It all went surprisingly smoothly and I was delighted to hear that I was a viable candidate and could study business after all," he added....

Kingston University students win prestigious D&AD New Blood Black Pencil award for animation exploring mother's relationship with autistic son

An animation that brings to life a conversation between a mother and her autistic son has won the top prize at the D&AD New Blood Awards. Kingston University BA(Hons) Illustration Animation students Martha Halliday and Hannah McNally scooped the prestigious Black Pencil at a ceremony in Central London celebrating the best creative work by people under 23 years old in the United Kingdom.

The animation, titled Mm-hmm, delves into the imagination of the narrator's autistic son Joel as he talks to his mother about his plans for the future, when he is a "grown-up man". The audio clip allows the audience to listen in to the intimate conversation while the hand drawn visuals hint at the flights of fancy taken by Joel as he thinks about his future and his present. However the subtext of the short poignantly imagines what might happen when Joel's mother is no longer able to look after him, addressing the fears lurking in the back of her mind....
