Student Enrichment

Take advantage of our dedicated Student Enrichment team, who provide extra-curricular opportunities for students including mentoring, personal development and casual work on campus! To showcase what's on offer we have launched KUextra, an online portal for easily browsing and booking enrichment activities and events. Kingston Hub, an external organisation embedded in the team, provide opportunities for students to tackle social challenges and engage with the local community.

KUextra

Discover activities, events and opportunities outside of the timetable that will benefit you personally and academically - from arts and languages, social and sports groups, to academic and careers support. Go to the KUextra website or the KU app.

The Kingston Award

A points based university-wide scheme that recognises student participation in activities outside of your timetable. It encourages you to develop new skills and a sense of belonging to a wider community, as well as improving your employability prospects. Crucially the award is included in your Higher Education Achievement report which helps to showcase your skills to potential employers.

Mentoring

In addition to having a mentor yourself, you also have the opportunity to become a mentor. Not only is it rewarding to support others, you'll also develop key skills such as active listening, empathy and rapport.

Academic Mentoring
Experienced peers are recruited, trained and supported to facilitate the learning of students in the year(s) below to increase student success.

Beyond Barriers Mentoring Scheme
Level 5, 6 and 7 students can apply to be paired with a professional mentor who you meet regularly over 6 months.

Course Reps

A programme which empowers students to positively shape their university experience, providing unique opportunities to feedback on student experiences within their course and faculty. Course Representatives work closely with university staff to bring about student-led change that will have an impact for their cohort and future students.

Kingston Hub

An external organisation embedded in the Enrichment Team who provides opportunities for students to tackle social challenges and engage with the local community. Whether you'd like to mentor school pupils or tackle elderly isolation, you'll give back and gain valuable experiences for yourself. Visit the Kingston Hub website for more information. 

SPARKS Personal Development Programme

A programme developing students' confidence, leadership and resilience as well as developing a strong support network.

Casual work on campus

Earning while you learn has never been so much fun with our range of opportunities for casual work on campus. Our student ambassadors share their experiences with schools and colleges, at open days, welcome, halls and graduation events. You can also work in the library, as a fundraiser, or in clearing. You can choose the hours that fit around your studies and other commitments, and gain experience for your CV.
