Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.
Course: General Law
LLM Current position: Business Development at Quastel Midgen LLP Solicitors and studying towards becoming a barrister/solicitor
"Kingston Law School has been an amazing, transformative opportunity for me to develop my international career. I grew my legal skills, gained confidence and a better understanding on how to achieve my future goals.
Studying and living in Kingston was an amazing experience, where you find the most tranquil environment to prepare for your exams or write a dissertation, and at the same time you always have an activity to do if you need a break. The facilities at Kingston University are improving every year. Riverside pubs, cafes, sports and art clubs are all within easy reach. My masters degree was one of the most positive and exciting years in my life.
To anyone looking to join Kingston, I would recommend absorbing all the knowledge the lecturers have, try to use all the support services available, but do enjoy yourself and Kingston life.
I chose Kingston as it was recommended to me by my agent in Russia and because I liked the pictures I have seen. I wanted to be around a quieter area rather than a busy city centre; I thought it would help me concentrate on my studies more.
I am sure that I made the right choice as I have stayed in Kingston ever since."
Course: General Law LLM
"I've had such a good experience doing my postgraduate degree at Kingston that I just wish I had done it earlier! Coming to England (from Trinidad) for the first time since I was a tiny child was a daunting prospect, but I've found everyone so helpful and encouraging that I really didn't need to worry.
"I chose the General LLM in order to take advantage of the wide choice of options. In particular I've discovered a real interest in family mediation. My previous employers in Trinidad have shown much interest in taking me back after the LLM course, and at the moment I'm planning to take the Bar Vocational Course in London and then returning to Trinidad to complete my professional qualification. I'm now determined to make a career using the experience and knowledge I've gained from the course, which has equipped me to offer either a large or small practice some very valuable skills.
"In addition to the academic side of life, I've found the chance to meet a cosmopolitan range of fellow students on the course so enjoyable. The University was able to find me terrific accommodation, and I've been very happy with a landlady to look after me and help me to settle in. I'm sure that the whole adventure, together with the excellent courses offered, will make the experience one I'll always remember."
The award for teaching excellence included specific praise for the inclusivity and accessibility of the University's courses.
