Career-focused learning

Our courses will help to develop the skills and abilities you'll need to succeed in your career.

Many courses at Kingston University are vocational, specifically designed to prepare you for your chosen career and offering valuable work experience in industry or commerce. All our degrees teach you work-related skills, such as:

  • career management;
  • IT and communication;
  • numeracy; and
  • teamwork.

You can add extra depth to your studies by attending our many conferences and events or taking the chance to study abroad including opportunities from the Erasmus scheme.

Accreditation

Certain courses also carry professional accreditation from established organisations such as:

  • Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA);
  • Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS);
  • Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD);
  • the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM); and 
  • the British Psychological Society (BPS).

You can add extra depth to your studies by attending our many conferences and events.

Experience working life

We know real-world experience is important so many of our degrees offer the opportunity to complete a placement.

Some undergraduate programmes offer a 'sandwich' year which incorporates a period of time in industry before completing your degree. Kingston University also offers an optional two-year postgraduate programme which integrates a work placement as an assessed part of the course, so you will be issued a two year visa to cover both the taught and the work placement components.

Career advice

We will provide careers and employability support throughout your time at Kingston and for up to two years after you graduate. This includes:

Work in the UK after study

International students graduating from a UK university can apply to stay in the UK to work once they have finished their studies. With central London just 30 minutes away by train, you are within easy reach of a wide range of opportunities.
