Program Overview

Located in southwest London, Kingston University (KU) is one of the UK’s most popular universities and is ranked in the top 40*. Established in 1899, it has offered a high-quality life-changing experience to study abroad students for over 40 years.
Kingston has a self-contained, vibrant riverside location in a Royal London Borough with a rich history dating back over 1000 years. This unique location combines the best of both worlds, being leafy and attractive with the peace and security of living just outside central London, but with excellent easy access to it in just 25 minutes.
With a student population of 17,000 and a strong record of student diversity, there are typically students from over 140 countries providing a stimulating and enriching environment.
Our proximity to London and its four airports (Heathrow is just 10 miles away), makes Kingston an ideal location to maximise the experience to easily travel around the UK and into Europe.
The University is split over four campuses, all within easy reach of one another and are connected by a regular free bus service.

Adventures abroad

Lincoln University student

"My study abroad was incredible. The time I spent in London was packed with historical knowledge and content, as well as modern day world view that is unparalleled. The academic aspect is also very intricate and was everything one would expect from a British school. I was incredibly satisfied and wish I could go again."
