"I've really enjoyed my time at Kingston University. Since the first day, I instantly felt accepted into a welcoming environment. Staff were very helpful and friendly, encouraging students to get involved with numerous activities in order to get to know new people. A wide variety of societies kept me busy with exciting activities all year long. The University also provided students with many modern facilities to enhance their learning."
