About the University
Kingston University is located in the pleasant suburb of Kingston upon Thames, just 25 minutes from central London.
With about 17,000 students, it is the largest provider of higher education in south west London.
The Sunday Times shortlisted Kingston University as "University of the Year" alongside four other top universities in September 2000.
Kingston University is committed to providing the highest quality teaching for all its students. This is reflected in the results of official inspections carried out by the Government's Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). No fewer than 12 subjects have rated as "excellent" and every subject at Kingston over the past six years has been awarded 20 or above (out of a maximum of 24) by external assessors. Postgraduate students have reserved study areas with access to desks, PCs, comfortable reading areas and social space.
The Times Higher Education Supplement (May 2001) ranked Kingston University in 5th place for graduate employment of
a total of 96 universities. The Sunday Times league table (September 2000) revealed that after graduation fewer than 3% of Kingston University students remained unemployed.
