About us

Specialists in university preparation

Kings is an international education group with operations in the UK and USA.

Kings Pathways, our specialist university pathways division, has expertise in university preparation and pathway programmes. We make it clear, simple and fast for international students to access a huge range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at leading universities in UK and USA.

We deliver “on-campus” university pathway programmes in the USA, as well as preparation programmes delivered at our own colleges in both the UK and USA. We work with every student to help them decide the best option for their specific needs.

At Kings, we don’t have a “one size fits all” approach. We aim to meet the needs of each individual student by creating a personalised study path to the university which best suits their needs.

We are committed to ensuring our students receive exceptionally high levels of support and attention throughout the whole of their time with us. This way, our students can not only achieve their personal goals; they have every opportunity to exceed their own expectations.

Your personalized pathway to degree success

At Kings, we ask every student to imagine the American degree certificate they want on their wall in four years time. We then help them to build a personalized pathway to achieve it.
