What our graduates say

Check out what our graduates have gone on to do and how studying at Kingston helped them achieve their goals.

Roxane Rodrigues studied part-time over four years at Kingston University and gained a first-class honours degree in Business Economics BSc(Hons). She continued her studies with an International Business MSc and moved to a position as a policy analyst in the commercial sector.

Here's what Roxane says about studying economics at Kingston:

"I had always promised myself I'd return to studying, and took advantage of the flexibility of Kingston's modular degree programme. The course facilitated an in-depth critical understanding of economics, while applying the theory to the business sector and to organisational-level analysis."


In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate. 

As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:

  • placements;
  • working or studying abroad;
  • volunteering;
  • peer mentoring roles; and
  • internship opportunities within and outside the University.

In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
