Inspire the Future at Kingston

We believe that universities should aspire to change lives through the opportunities that they provide and the knowledge they produce. We are committed to providing access to everyone with the ability to benefit from a higher education, regardless of their background or means. Your origin should not determine your destination.

Your donations contribute to emergency hardship grants, postgraduate scholarships, ground-breaking research and ensure that students who have left care or who are estranged from their families can still thrive at university.

The results of your generosity won't just be felt in Kingston. With your help, Kingston can continue to train teachers, engineers, nurses, radiographers, forensic scientists, lawyers, architects, surveyors, artists, writers, designers... vocations across the whole professional range that make the world a better place.

You'll be helping to send people out into the world that can not only help solve its problems, but also enrich the lives of those around them. For that we – and they – thank you.

Here are some of the areas where your gift can make a big difference:

Care leaver bursaries

The challenges faced by care leavers are considerably higher than those faced by the majority of students. Kingston University is committed to helping these talented young people succeed.

Student Hardship Fund

Our Hardship Fund is for students who, through no fault of their own, need urgent financial help to complete their studies. It can mean the difference between a student dropping out and graduating successfully.

You may hear from one of our amazing student callers, who will be calling you to update you on all the Kingston news, hear about your career and experiences, and show how your gift will support students at Kingston.

Your regular support is hugely important. In making a git to Kingston, you'll be part of a community of more than 4,500 alumni, friends and supporters who have provided students with the tools and the opportunities they need to become the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.

Thank you.
