Kingston School of Art

As one of the UK's leading educational institutions, Kingston School of Art's excellence is reflected by impressive subject rankings, awards, research performance and the global influence of its alumni.

Professional skills are taught alongside research and theory, with all courses culminating in a major project. Many courses even offer opportunities to work on live industry briefs or to take work placements in industry.

We have recently invested £32m in a major refurbishment project at Kingston School of Art's Knights Park campus to provide students with world-class workshop spaces and design studios.

“The facilities are amazing. We have access to stunning photography studios with high-end equipment which I consider the best in London.”
