Ho-Sa, from Taiwan, has been accepted by The Slade School of Fine Art (UCL) to study Fine Art. Slade accepts just 1 in every 40 applicants!

"I think Kings is a very nice place to develop my portfolio because one of the tutors, Ms Montgomery, has a lot of experience in helping students to develop their portfolios and write their personal statements. I think this is a good place to concentrate on whatever we are working on. I think it’s very important that you have enough time to spend alone to develop yourself. “

Anastasia, from Russia, has been accepted by her first choice university of UWE Bristol to study Fashion and Textiles.

"Most universities or schools focus on marks and grades, but this college I think is quite good because it’s more about developing skills. When I went to Kings I didn’t know textiles but I developed a lot of new skills and techniques which is great for my university."

Nataliia, from Ukraine, has been accepted by her first choice university of Central Saint Martins, UAL to study Architecture.

"We had many exciting projects during the course. The teachers are so communicative with us as students.

Before I applied for Architecture, I had some tasks to complete for my portfolio and — even though it was a Sunday evening — I chatted with my teacher and she was so helpful."

The path to an Art and Design degree with Kings

Kings students can progress to art and design related degrees from several courses at Kings, the most common being the Art and Design Foundation.

With this one-year programme, students prepare fully for their university studies and are encouraged to develop their own skills, interests and specialism.
