Compact Scheme

Compact Scheme - Building your road to successThe Compact Scheme at Kingston University aims to support the access, transition and success of individuals from groups under-represented in higher education.

It is available for mature learners, care leavers, students with a disability or specific learning difference, first generation applicants (ie those whose parents have not been to university) and those who have a household income below £25,000.

The Compact Scheme provides:

  • the opportunity to apply for the Kingston University Bursary of £2,000 (please note there are a limited number of bursaries available and specific conditions apply);
  • a single point of contact for information and advice throughout the admissions process and for the duration of your course;
  • an invitation to the pre-enrolment Head Start Summer School, which helps prepare you for student life and supports your transition to Kingston University;
  • life and study skills workshops to help equip you with the skills needed to succeed – topics covered include note-taking, revision strategies and money matters; and
  • alerts to extra-curricular opportunities such as our student ambassador scheme, teaching experience placements, study abroad options and mentoring programmes.

If you are a UK care leaver, estranged from your family or a young adult carer we offer additional support, including an additional bursary.

What our students say...

Compact Scheme students at our Fast Forward event.

The Compact Scheme organises a lot of workshops to help people, and I found the accommodation talk extremely useful as I haven't ever rented or looked at houses before and otherwise I wouldn't know what to look out for. I would recommend the Compact Scheme as it can make you feel prepared, involved and supported throughout your university experience.

Compact Scheme student Ayse

I would 100% recommend joining the Compact Scheme and attending Head Start if you want to come to Kingston University, by doing so you will automatically be part of a community here at the University.
