Our courses

Kingston School of Art is the only faculty to span three campuses at Kingston.  At Knights Park, where our architecture, art, design and creative industries courses are taught, the fabulous, newly refurbished, industry-standard workshops and studios are open for creative exploration.  They allow opportunities for students and staff to work together and to share ideas, whether they are studying or researching. 

At Penrhyn Road, where Philosophy, Journalism, Media, Publishing, Creative Writing, English, Dance and Drama are taught, the campus is a hive of activity, with social activities, Student Union events and guest lectures taking place alongside teaching.

Music is taught at Kingston Hill campus, where students practice, produce, record and perform music in our dedicated Coombehurst facilities.

Ideas emerge here

Kingston School of Art has long been recognised as one of the best art and design schools in teaching and research, which is shown in our subject rankings, research, performance, industry and student awards, and the leading brands and institutions whom choose to work with us.

World class facilities

The Design Museum called our studios and workshops "a world class design facility".  They provide the perfect space in which to experience practice-based learning, and explore thinking through making.

On our visit to Kingston's workshops we experienced a hugely impressive and inspirational, world class design facility abuzz with creative energy and technical verve; the ideal environment to inspire and equip the next generation of designers with the design skills for the future.
