International students

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences provides a welcoming and stimulating environment for international students. We are based at the Penrhyn Road campus, at the heart of the University and within walking distance of Kingston town centre and the river. Students in the Faculty come from across the world to study our wide range of courses, many of which have a truly international dimension.

You will be taught by people who have national and international reputations in their subject fields. We have links with universities across Europe, in India, Japan South America and the US. The Faculty is also the home of a number of English language programmes aimed at international students.

Kingston University has excellent facilities and support for our international students, which starts as soon as you arrive in the UK with the Meet and Greet service, Orientation Programme and Welcome Event.

Penny Tribe is the Faculty's International Student Co-ordinator and  Pauline Sampson is the University's International Student Adviser.  KUSU, our students' union, has an International Students Society which runs a wide range of activities throughout the year.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences!
