Ucas code: K84

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. The Union is there to help students have the best experience from Freshers' week to free advice.

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.
