Preparing for your visit

To help you get the most out of your visit to Kingston University, we've put together a list of things to do and think about. This will ensure you come away with the knowledge to make the right decision for your future.

1. Book your place

Booking on to the Open Day will mean we can send you information about your visit before the day.

2. Bring a friend or parent

You can come along on your own, or bring a family member or friend – it can be useful to get someone else's opinions and thoughts, too.

3. Plan your day – don't rush it

The programme is designed to help you make sure you go to all the talks and activities that will help you make an informed choice. Our open days run at several of our campuses, so please make sure you head to the correct one. When you book you will see which campus your subject talk is at, but you can visit more than one campus if appropriate to your interests.

4. Check your travel

Check out our how to find us pages. If you're coming by bus, train or tube, make sure you have an Oyster card or contactless payment as public transport in London is now cashless.

5. Pack a notepad and pen

Remember to bring a notepad and pen so you can jot your thoughts down as you go to help you remember everything after the day.

6. What to wear

There's a lot to see and do on your visit – including campus/accommodation tours – so comfy shoes (and perhaps an umbrella!) are recommended. It's also handy to bring a bag for any leaflets and guides you'll pick up.

7. Come with questions for staff and students

There will be plenty of things you'll need to know to help you make your decisions. If you're not sure where to start, ask yourself – what's important to me? What do I need to know? What will help me decide which university and course is right for me?

Top questions to ask:

  • Why did you choose Kingston University?
  • How is my course taught?
  • How is my course assessed?
  • What facilities are there?
  • What other opportunities are there – placements / study abroad?
  • What sports clubs and societies are there?
  • What other support is available for me?

We hope you enjoy your visit to Kingston University!
