Graduating Class Gift 2019

Congratulations! Soon you will walk across your graduation stage and celebrate all that you have achieved at Kingston. Be proud of your successes, we're certainly proud of you – Class of 2019.

As a Kingston graduate you will become one of our ‘alumni'. Kingston University Alumni hold regular professional masterclasses, seminars and offer discounts on further study for every stage of your career. We hope that Kingston will keep opening doors for you well into the future!

Opening the door for those who come after you

Starting in 2016, graduates chose to leave a Class Gift for future Kingston students. Alumni play a huge role in making life better for students through the Inspire the Future campaign, providing hundreds of hardship grants, scholarships and bursaries every year. Celebrate your achievement by giving £3 – the cost of a coffee – to future students. As a thank you, you'll get an exclusive KU gift! Every pound you give is matched by our alumni, turning your £3 into £6.

Giving is simple

The Class of 2019 is destined for greatness!

Graduating Class Gifts have made a remarkable impact on your fellow students now graduating in 2019 – students who might be walking across the stage with you at your graduation!

The Class of 2016 funded a bursary for a student who has left care for an entire year. The Class of 2017 gave their Class Gift to the Student Hardship Fund and, thanks to them, PhD candidate Arshia was able to complete his doctorate into pioneering treatments for cervical cancer. The Class of 2018 gave a remarkable £4,145 and voted to support the Student Hardship Fund, supporting students who, through no fault of their own, need financial help to complete their studies.

What will my donation support?

Every penny donated by alumni is spent on students. Your gift will:

And remember, your new Kingston alumni family will match every pound you give.

Why should I participate?

  • You will ensure that future students who need a bit of help can create their own unique Kingston experiences, just like you did.
  • Believe it or not, only a portion of Kingston's annual budget comes from tuition and government funding. The remaining funds must be generated through the loyal support of alumni, friends, businesses and STUDENTS!
  • High giving rates show alumni, recruiters, prospective students and other institutions that our students believe in Kingston, increasing the value of your degree.

Your participation shows your confidence in Kingston's mission and the education you received, setting a powerful example for next year's graduating class; and the one after that.

Thank you for making the Kingston University community even stronger through your generosity.
