Equality, diversity and inclusion are at the very heart of Kingston University. These values are in our diverse student population and staff, in our multi-cultural student societies and events, and in our activities to encourage prospective students and create the best study experience for all.
There's no such thing as an average Kingston University student. Students come from all over the UK and around the world. Last time we checked, our non-UK students came from 154 countries, from Australia to Zimbabwe.
Our student societies alone cover a fantastic variety of nationalities, communities, faiths, interests and more. They all come together annually for our Global Festival – celebrating diversity, culture and internationalism.
One Kingston is our strategy for equality, diversity and inclusion. It is designed to ensure that students, like those from Black, Asian, minority groups or those with disabilities, benefit fully from the university process – from student recruitment to the student experience, to graduate employment.
Kingston University is also proud to hold the Athena SWAN bronze award for our commitment to advancing women's careers in science, technology, maths and medicine (STEMM).
