Live pre-applicant and applicant webinars

To accompany the reintroduction of on-campus face-to-face events, we've designed plenty of exciting online events to prepare you for life at Kingston. During these webinars we'll deliver presentations on a variety of topics and have friendly and helpful staff members, as well as current students, on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Pre-applicant webinars

Our pre-applicant webinars are intended for students interested in applying to study with us and usually take place between November and January. These events give you the perfect opportunity to find out all you need to know before you apply. All pre-applicant webinars for entry in 2023 have taken place.
