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.
