Kingston University is dedicated to teaching excellence, our lecturers, personal tutors and specialist support staff are here to provide you with expert guidance during your studies. We also offer a comprehensive range of academic support services including academic skills centres, mentoring schemes, and help with English language and maths.
At our academic skills centres, lecturers and student advisers provide you with one-to-one support on your coursework – this includes help with researching, references and much more. There is a skills centre located at every campus, including St George's, University of London.
From the start of your degree you are assigned a personal tutor. Your personal tutor can give you guidance on studying, student life and career progression. Regular meetings with your personal tutor are a great opportunity to discuss issues and developments you experience during your course.
While students are encouraged to think independently, they are also encouraged to support others in their studies. As such, the Academic Mentoring Programme is a platform for second-year students to share their knowledge and experiences with first-year students.
We offer free language courses throughout the academic year. These courses help international students gain even more confidence in speaking and writing in English.
If you are taking a course with a maths component, you can get into MathsAid to give your skills an extra boost. The programme consists of one-to-one sessions with trained tutors, peer-assisted learning and virtual learning.
