In my first few weeks, university life proved to be a challenge. There are key enrolment steps that can appear quite daunting at first, but Kingston University makes the whole process very simple and easy by establishing communication with the students even before they arrive on campus. Coming from another EU country, I found the welcome events set up for International as well as Home students to be the best asset of Kingston University. They contributed to making me feel I was in a friendly environment, and that I could look forward to a challenging but rewarding studying experience. The programme for the first week provided me with ample choice between academic and social events, and it granted me the opportunity to put the university, and myself, to the test before the actual first day of classes. Even then, we were assigned to small groups with a personal tutor that would follow our progress throughout the three years of our degree; I was given the impression, and I am sure my fellow students would agree, that we were more than numbers to our tutors. The daunting experience of being on our own for the first time was made manageable by the excellent support system that Kingston University avails itself of and I honestly could not have asked for a better one.×

Depends on the type of course you are on as to the course costs, there are lots of good value shops in and around town to get good value and bargains. Sometimes it's better to shop around a bit and get different things fro different places and not doing all your general shopping in one shop but instead a few. There's good value and choices of food, drink, and refreshments on campus however being a student i mostly bring food and drink with me that i have prepared at home, this saves money in general and is cheaper than buying a sandwich for lunch everyday. There's a free uni bus which makes things very easy and cheap to get around town between campus'. If you get an oyster card and use your 16-25 railcard this makes traveling outside of the kingston area and into london fairly cheap. There are plenty of bars, shops, cafe's etc to find work and employment in and uni do have quite a few positions and opportunities to work throughout the year.×
there are always transport going to campuses and the university always has opportunities for part time jobs for students.Report

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
