English study

Study pic Kingston's English department was awarded an 'excellent' rating at its last Teaching Quality Assessment.

Student feedback consistently emphasises the quality of our teaching and the approachability of staff. At Kingston, we put the student experience first among our priorities.

Lecturers at Kingston publish research of national and international importance, and this cutting-edge research informs our teaching practice.

Personal Tutor Scheme

The teaching team is committed to providing the support you need to facilitate your transition to university life. We pride ourselves on our approachability and readiness to help. The personal tutor scheme, designed to help you from your very first week, is the embodiment of this commitment. As an integral part of your first year of study, you will be placed in a small seminar group, led by the same member of the teaching team for the whole year. That seminar leader will also be your personal tutor, not just for the first year, but throughout your degree, providing support in your learning, your personal development and in developing your career aspirations.
