Championing Future Skills

Kingston University is leading the way in a major campaign highlighting the importance of skills for innovation and their vital role in driving a thriving national economy. Our research, conducted with support from YouGov, has consistently shown that key attributes such as problem solving, critical thinking, communication, adaptability and creativity are among the core skills most valued by employers. The campaign has attracted widespread support from business and industry leaders, government policy-makers, politicians and peers.

Since September, all our first year undergraduates have been completing Future Skills' Navigate modules as part of their courses. They will move on to expand their skills and knowledge through Explore and Apply modules during their second and third years as part of the University's commitment to fully preparing them for career success.

There are so many sports clubs, societies and socialising events that you can take part in during your down time, and I absolutely recommend making the most of them.

I was lucky enough to attend the Head Start programme. This experience gave me the opportunity to get to know all the support that was available to me.
