Head Start 2022

We are not currently accepting bookings for Head Start at this time. However, if you are planning to join Kingston University in September 2022, then we will let you know as soon as our applications open for you to book your place at one of our events.

What will happen at Head Start?

Our Head Start programme will take place over the summer of 2022 between July and September. There will be a mixture of three-day and one-day events to choose from, which are completely free to attend. If you register for one of the three-day events then free accommodation in our halls of residence is available.

This is a great opportunity to prepare for life as an undergraduate student and receive lots of invaluable tips, advice and guidance delivered by members of staff from key areas of the University. You'll also be able to interact with current students, who'll give you an insight into student life from their perspective. By taking part in Head Start you'll feel more confident and better prepared to start your course.

Here's just a taste of what will happen at Head Start:

  • Meet current students and find out what it's really like to study at Kingston University.
  • Make new friends with other people who will also be new to Kingston University.
  • Take part in exclusive question panels with key groups from the University, including Accommodation, Health and Wellbeing and Money Advice teams.
  • Useful advice sessions about managing your own budget, and finding part-time work and placements.
  • Meet the Union of Kingston Students to find out how to get involved in clubs and societies.
  • Exclusive information for mature learners and mental health, disability and dyslexia support.
  • Learn about our libraries and the facilities they offer.
  • Get valuable study tips, advice and guidance about studying within Higher Education.

For more information you can refer to our frequently-asked questions section, or talk to our current students directly about their experiences at Kingston University.

More information about our Head Start 2022 programme will be released in due course.
