Founded as Kingston Technical College in 1899, the institute gained university status in 1992 and became Kingston University. There are four campuses that comprise the university: Penrhyn Road, Kingston Hill, Knights Park, and Roehampton Vale. The campuses are linked by a free bus service. Much like New York City has its boroughs, Greater London has its own as well. Kingston upon Thames, where the university is located, is in the southwest of London and is a 25 minute train ride from the center of the city. Over 21,000 students attend the university with almost 4,000 of those representing over 150 countries outside of the United Kingdom.
Home to a number of the world's most recognizable sights and sounds, London is truly one of the most global cities on Earth. As the capital city of England, and of the United Kingdom, it is the largest municipality in the European Union. As of 2011, over 300 languages were found to be spoken within its boundaries. Whether you want to see Big Ben, browse the British Museum, or ride the London Eye, there will never be a shortage of adventures to have while studying abroad.
