Just 20 minutes from central London, Kingston University has four campuses surrounded by leafy parks, an ancient market town and a picturesque riverside. The hustle and bustle of our shopping centre and gourmet restaurants in the daytime is replaced at night by a vibrant and thriving club scene.

League table rankings

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.
