What our students say

Alia, a Kingston University student from Kuwait

"As an international student, finding that my course is actually designed specifically for International Business Management was a bonus for me! That meant there would be a decent mix of international students, who I will get the chance to learn from, and be able to make friends from all over the world."

Alia, from Kuwait, studies MSc International Business with Marketing.
