Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.
A student's view of our links with industry:
"I chose to study aerospace engineering mainly because I have always had an interest in aircraft. I grew up next to an RAF base in Cornwall so I have always had experience of aircraft.
"The year that I completed my UCAS application form, Kingston University was voted one of the best universities in the country for engineering in general. I also had friends who had come here in previous years who said that the course was very good.
"The placement year gave me an insight into industry and made me want to become an engineer even more. The University has such excellent connections that many students get very good placements. My time management skills have improved by working in a real life environment. I feel it has made me a much better student."
A student's view on why to choose Kingston:
"The course at Kingston was highly recommended to me so I looked through the prospectus and it seemed to have what I wanted.
"The content of the course gives you a broad range of knowledge, covering everything from aerodynamics to structures. There are also hands-on experiences, such as going in the flight simulator or seeing the real-world flight characteristics of small aircraft.
"If anyone's thinking of doing the course, I would recommend taking a year out to work in industry. All BEng and MEng students can do this and it gives you an excellent insight into what you might be doing after university. It also gives you great skills and experience to put on your CV.
"Kingston town is great - it is close to London but far enough away to have its own identity."
A student's view of our teaching:
"My favourite module was design, because you get to build models, which is interesting. If you go and knock on their office doors and ask for help, the staff are always there and they don't turn anyone away. They are really helpful in that sense.
"Doing an industrial placement gives you that head start when you are searching for jobs."
A student's view of the course:
"Kingston was always up there as my favourite choice. If you love aircraft, why not study aerospace engineering? You get an understanding of the subject and you can go into the design side. You also get the practical side in the labs."
