Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Name: Anika Parmar
Course: Exercise, Nutrition and Health BSc(Hons)
Age: 21

"I chose this course because it covers all the areas that interest me - nutrition, health and exercising. There is also a wide choice of career options open to its graduates. When I was applying for university, the course was very rare and Kingston University was the only institution offering it that had a good reputation.

"I found the course enjoyable, especially the nutritional aspects. The practical sessions were very useful, as was the coursework which had a practical element, as it gave us a chance to see what it would be like to test a patient or athlete in real life.

"The workload was manageable with a combination of exams and coursework, which made it a lighter load during exam time at the end of the semester."

 

Name: Jabeen Shah
Course: Exercise, Nutrition and Health BSc(Hons)
Route to University: Mature student

"I've been taking a break from full-time work for the last few years to bring up my children. Now they are older, I've been thinking about the future and decided that when I go back to work, I want an enjoyable job in an area in which I have a particular interest.

"I chose to study at Kingston because the University offered a degree course covering all the core subjects that interested me – nutrition, sport and exercise. It also provided me with an opportunity to update my skills in terms of advancing technology, particularly computer skills.

"I was a little apprehensive about returning to full-time education much later in life, but I had no difficulty in mixing with younger students. Staff were very helpful and supportive and made every effort to make extra allowances where needed.

"I enjoyed the course and found it quite challenging at times. Most lectures were very well prepared and thorough, although some required extra background reading. The lab sessions could be difficult at times, but I found them enjoyable, working in a group and applying theory in a practical situation.

"The most useful element of my degree was developing the ability to critically analyse a vast quantity of research in a methodical and efficient manner, and write concise reports/essays based on research evidence.

"My ambition is to work in a public health role or to continue in further education. As a public health consultant I hope to be able to give people advice on exercise and nutrition and develop programmes to meet individual needs."
