Amanda Carungi, Creative Writing and Publishing MA

"If there are any hopeful international students who are wondering if they should take the plunge into international education, my advice is to go for it! Getting the International Scholarship and getting the opportunity to live abroad and go to school in another country is such a rewarding experience and you learn a lot about yourself in the process."

"Kingston 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. Kingston offers several scholarships opportunities. I had applied to get the International Scholarship which I was lucky enough to be the recipient of."

"I am amazed by all the support and advice that is offered by the professors and University alike; it has truly created an environment where I feel confident in the work I am doing.
