I followed the courses Exploring cultural London and London, global city of enterprise. These two courses are given by walking trough London and seeing EVERYTHING. I Loved every part of it and got a great deal of exercise. i also recommend the weekend trips to Scotland, Amsterdam and perhaps on own initiative to Cardiff (Wales). Although 5/6 weeks sounds like a long time, it is still not enough time to enjoy London. I will certainly return.

Looking back, I absolutely loved my time at Kingston University and in London, and I miss it more and more every day. It was a great location, provided great field trips, and was overall a fantastic time. However, there were certainly things I would change about the university arrangements specifically. The housing arrangements were really pretty bad, there was non-stop issues with our dorms and the rooms themselves (for example, my friend who was traveling with me had a room that had the heater turned on all of the time and could not be turned off and it got to the point where you couldn't even bare to be in the room, let alone sleep in it), and this was definitely my biggest complaint. Also, though the walk to class was nice some mornings, it got awfully tiring being located so far away from everything. Like I said, overall, this was a fantastic experience and I loved my time there, but there were also some things that would have made it even better!

What would you improve about this program?
-Improve living arrangements
-Provide a more constant shuttle to classes in the morning
-More interaction with the students--events to bring everyone together more often

Studying at Kingston University has been the best decision I have made in my life thus far and I wish that I could go back in time and relive it all! The classes that I took allowed me to explore a city and a culture in a way where I could learn and sight see at the same time. My professors cared about my success in the class and made sure I understood what was being taught and seen at the same time. Additionally, I had time to explore on my own and spend time with my classmates which made the trip that much more amazing. Since I've been back home in the states, I cannot stop raving to my peers and friends about this program and will continue to recommend it!

What would you improve about this program?
The dorms were really the only thing I had trouble with because of broken window latches (pigeons would come into the kitchen) and my building's wifi system went down, which made it difficult to do homework or contact my family back home. However, I didn't

I had an amazing time studying abroad at Kingston University! There is so much to in London, and the travel card they give you is very convenient. The two long weekends for travel are also quite nice, allowing you the chance to see more of Europe. The social setting was fantastic, with loads of fun people to hang out with. Additionally, not only does the program provide social events, but you have time to explore on your own and go on field trips with your classmates. As a result, you start to make a lot of bonds very quickly with a wide variety of people. Overall, I my study abroad experience with Kingston was incredible, and I miss it every day.

What would you improve about this program?
The only things I can think of is more comfortable sheets/mattresses (although we are warned about those in advance), and an easier fix for the hot water when it sometimes would refuse to work.

Apart from the somewhat crappy dorms, my experience at Kingston University was absolutely AMAZING. The professors I had really cared about my success in the course and about me having fun while abroad. Everything we did in class was so interesting and fun. Outside of class, Kingston University provided many opportunities to socialize with classmates, which was very helpful throughout my entire time there. I would not trade my experience in for the world. 10/10 would recommend for anyone interested in studying in London! I would go back in a heartbeat. (Actually crying while writing this because I miss it so much)

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I can think of that needs improvement is the dorms. But dorms aren't the best no matter where you go. Even my university in the states had crappy dorms. This just makes you want to get out of your room!
