Career focus

At Kingston, we like to develop courses in consultation with professional organisations and many courses carry professional accreditation. Our courses emphasise career skills and many are vocational or offer you the chance to gain work experience in industry or commerce.

For the sixth year running Kingston is one of the top universities in the country for graduate start-ups. Helping business-minded alumni get companies off the ground is an increasingly important service at a time when self-employment is becoming a career choice for growing numbers of those completing a degree (Higher Education Business and Community Interaction Survey, 2013-14)

We offer international students a comprehensive range of support to help them feel welcome and at home in, these include: a free airport pickup service, a special welcome programme, and specialist support staff.
