OverviewLondon Map

Based beside the River Thames in an attractive suburb of south-west London, Kingston University is a great location for studying abroad.  Kingston has a vibrant town centre with shops, restaurants, a theatre, and a cinema.  It also has excellent transport links and central London is just 25 minutes away by tube (or train). 

Home to around 29,000 university and college students, Kingston is a lively, thriving, student-friendly place, packed with historic buildings, leisure venues and open spaces for you to enjoy life as a student. It's also the seventh largest retail centre in the UK (according to the Kingston Council website), so you could never call it a sleepy suburb!  

Academics

The University offers an extensive range of 1,300 modules in more than 30 different subject areas.  There are five faculties (shown below) made up of schools specializing in specific subject areas, most of which are open to Study Abroad students.

Housing & Meals

University-arranged accommodation is offered to all study abroad students, either in modern en-suite single study bedrooms or in lodgings.  Housing options are self-catered, meaning students arrange for their own meals.  Students will have facilities to either prepare meals for themselves or partake in options offered by the campus and city. 

Students planning to study abroad for one semester are eligible to apply for Lodgings. A lodging is a single room in a private residence with a landlord. Lodgings are fully furnished and equipped with bedding and cooking utensils.

Once an application is accepted, Kingston staff will advise and place you in appropriate housing.

Financial Aid

Scholarships: 100% Adelphi scholarships apply during the fall and spring terms when students pay their regular Adelphi tuition and fees (housing is paid directly to Kingston). For summer sessions, students pay all expenses directly to Kingtson.

Students should carefully review their finances when considering a study abroad opportunity. Please set up an appointment with Adelphi University's Student Financial Services (basement of Levermore) to understand how studying abroad will impact your financial aid and scholarship package. 

CISI Insurance

All students studying abroad with Kingston University are required to purchase insurance with CISI Insurance, a worldwide coverage plan. For more information about CISI insurance please contact the CIE office.

Visa Requirements

Students studying in England for less than six months can choose to apply for the Student Visitor Visa or the Tier 4 Adult Student Visa. Students must check whether they are considered a visa national or not as this will effect what is mandatory and what is optional for you. Student visitors are not permitted to work (whether paid, unpaid, or an internship) and cannot extend their stay in the UK. Please note that the majority of semester students opt for the Student Visitor Visa.
