I feel that Kingston University is a platform to upskill your career.
Tips: I suggest the students first make sure to apply early so that you will get the offer from Kingston University early. I also recommend to choose the student's campus accommodation in the University itself which is safe and cheaper rather than apartment.

This University has given me a platform to be successful in life.
Tips: I recommend the students to find the accommodation early as soon as they get the admit from the University. The on-campus accommodation is a good choice without any hassle. If your preference is on campus accommodation then book it as soon as possible without being late.
Likes (Part time work): I must say the quality of life in the campus of Kingston University is amazing. We can do lots of fun activities apart from classes. We do have many activities to do and all the international students from different countries share their thoughts and are friendly.
Dislikes (Student Life): The quality of faculty at Kingston University is really amazing and I would rate 5 out of 5. The faculty is research oriented and they teach the syllabus in an understanding manner. The way of faculty here is research and practical oriented and they also help students in many aspects.

A good college and recommended college for engineering.
Tips: You never have to look back once you join the field. There are no caste discriminations.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): The state offers you a high paid salary job and offers you to stay and work there. You get paid high with all the accomodations for free. Less hours of job and salary.
Dislikes (Safety): I felt to give 4 star because every one has their own opinion. There are no such activity that concerns your safety. Everyone is busy with his or her own life no one cares about other.
