What our students say

Kingston offers several scholarships opportunities. I applied to get a scholarship which I was lucky enough to be the recipient of.

The University has an amazing programme with a great learning environment that helps you adapt quickly and progress towards your academic goals. It is also one of the few universities to implement placements into the masters course I am on; this was important to me when I was searching for universities.

When I applied for a scholarship at Kingston, the entire process was seamless as they cater for all the various factors specific to international students.

The quality of the correspondence from the University during this period made me feel as though I was already a Kingston University student.

I enjoy the learning process at Kingston University and the opportunity that the scholarship gave me. My advice for future international students is: keep moving; do not give up; hard work pays.

My favourite experience so far has been interacting and building relationships with individuals from countries, backgrounds, and cultures different from mine.

There are a lot of uncertainties with leaving home for a new place. 

Choosing an international student-friendly school and country is key to enjoying the full learning experience and developing professionally. This is what the scholarship at Kingston University provided me with.
