Kingston University, London
Kingston University, London is the university of choice for many aspiring entrepreneurs. It is one of the top universities in the UK for graduate start-ups (Annual Higher Education Business and Community Interaction Survey 2016), due to its focus on practical career-led learning and developing industry links.

As well as providing an opportunity to apply the skills learnt at university, taking part in work experience is a great way to build industry links, with many students going on to work with their placement company after graduation.
