We're also keen to use the latest technology to keep your studies fresh and engaging.
- Our virtual learning environment, StudySpace, includes learning and teaching resources, multimedia material, discussion boards, wikis and blogs. It also enables you to create your own profile, networks and groups. Recent developments include mobile access, improved desktop video-conferencing and podcasting, and video-enhanced instant messaging. You can use this environment to study where you want, when you want, from any internet-enabled computer.
- We're continually trialling the use of new technologies in learning and teaching, including the use of electronic voting systems in lectures and the role of mobile and personal technologies (eg mobiles, cameras, YouTube, Facebook) to support learning. We're also developing the role of virtual worlds, so that, during snowy weather, our computing students were able to attend virtual lectures in an open-air auditorium under a warm summer sky!
- We're also investing £millions in new buildings, teaching facilities and our learning resources centres. Find out more.
Kingston Business School is one of only a handful of universities in the United Kingdom offering direct use of Bloomberg data, information and analytics in a special trading room which proves students with a taste of working on a real trading floor.
Teaching and assessment methods
We use a range of forward-thinking teaching and assessment methods depending on what you're studying. Some examples include:
- hands-on experience of our Learjet and flight simulator;
- investigations in our scene-of-crime house;
- working in a real legal clinic; and
- experiencing space weightlessness.
Because of the University's good relationship and close proximity to the crown court, Kingston students get the opportunity to be assessed in an authentic legal environment.

"I chose Kingston because... the Law School has a very good reputation, with good facilities and the opportunity to study abroad as part of your degree. I also loved the location and Kingston town centre itself, as there's so much to do!"
