How we can support you

We want to make sure you get all the support you need while you are with us. Here you can see the range of support we will offer you:

Students on this course are supported by:

  • a module leader for each module;
  • a course director to help you understand the programme structure;
  • a personal tutor to provide academic and personal support;
  • a dissertation supervisor;
  • a designated course administrator; and
  • a staff student consultative committee.

You will also be able to use the University's student support facilities which provide advice on issues such as finance, regulations, legal matters, disability and support, counselling, accommodation etc.

You will have access to the careers and employabilty service who can help you with CV preparation, job applications and interview techniques. They also run a series of employment fairs and career focus events which can help you to make contact with employers and consider potential future career opportunties.

The Centre for Academic Support and Employability (CASE) provides extra support for students from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences who need help with study skills. For example, you might want to improve your writing, revision or assessment skills.

Graduate Centres

All postgraduate students at Kingston have access to the Graduate Centres, dedicated spaces for graduate students. These are ideal for private study or holding meetings. Find out more in the Facilities section.

Web-based support

Canvas is an online learning management system which facilitates access to a range of materials for each module. These materials typically include:

  • notes, backup materials, presentations and previous exam papers;
  • online chatrooms and bulletin boards – so you can interact with staff and other students; and
  • multimedia features – such as video tutorials.

Because you can use Canvas from any internet-enabled computer at any time, you can choose when and where you study.

Language support

International students can access plenty of language support, both before and during the course:
