Flexible Learning

Our wide range of study options reflects the broad scope of our teaching and the diverse backgrounds and needs of our students. Many courses have the option to study either full or part-time allowing you to balance study with work or family commitments. We offer a variety of taught and research-based masters courses, as well as PhDs that can take your education and career to the next level.


Kingston University is located across four teaching campuses. Each has its own character, but all offer state-of-the-art facilities and a friendly study environment.

The university has recently invested £118.7 million to transform their facilities to further provide a first-class learning experience across all four campuses. At the forefront of this transformation is our landmark Town House building and our major renovation project at Kingston School of Art.

Town House, located at our Penrhyn Road campus won the 2021 RIBA Stirling Prize for Britain’s best new building and the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2022. Town House provides outstanding study facilities for students, including a new library with over 1,000 study spaces, flexible learning areas, a covered courtyard, cafes, dance studios and roof top gardens.

Our major refurbishment at Kingston School of Art’s Knights Park campus has been designed to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and deliver much improved workshop and studio space while enhancing the environmental performance of the building. The transformed Mill Street Building offers two floors of industry-leading workshop spaces, including new double height space for architecture students to be able to create larger scale project. There are also four floors of modern professional-grade studio spaces and a rooftop balcony area so you can take in some fresh air or gaze into the horizon when searching for inspiration.
