Our Head Start programme will take place this summer over a seven-week period between July and September. It is designed to give you a detailed understanding about studying at Kingston University. Each week, exciting and informative content will be released for you to engage with.

You'll also be able to interact with current students, who'll give you an insight into student life from their perspective. By attending Head Start you'll feel more confident and better prepared to start your course.
