Kensington College of Business


Recommended Posts

The building is located in the center of London in Holborn, referred to as "midtown," enabling students to live or work anywhere in and around London and still be able to access the College. Our physical location partly accounts for the College's longstanding ties with the corporate and professional sectors to which it has provided training and consultancy services. The College is within a short walking distance of key legal institutions, notably the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court, Inns of Court, leading law firms, and barrister chambers. Students at KCB have the opportunity to gain cross-cultural experiences due to the cosmopolitan nature of London life and the international nature of the students at KCB. Students from various countries from all the continents of the world and the UK study at Kensington College of Business on various courses. The atmosphere at the Campus is vibrant and truly multicultural. International events and parties are regularly organized at KCB. A range of events takes place such as Tango and Salsa Dance Classes at KCB's Campus in the evenings.
KCB has more than 30 years of experience in delivering Undergraduate level and Postgraduate level courses of prominent British Universities such as Wales, Glamorgan, Hertfordshire, Portsmouth, Thames Valley, and others. The faculty members at KCB are highly competent with extensive academic and industrial experience. Guest speakers who are top consultants and practitioners at leading companies are invited to deliver guest lectures and speeches at KCB for the benefit of students. This allows students at KCB to gain valuable insights into past and contemporary business practices. KCB prides itself on ensuring that a personal approach is taken towards teaching and learning. The Principal of KCB personally takes an interest in ensuring that the lecturers give all of KCB's student's attention. Regular feedback is provided to students on their progress from assessment requirements.
KCB has a small onsite Library. It also has an online library that contains the textbooks for the main subjects studied at KCB, together with journals through the EBSCO site. Also, KCB provides details of other libraries such as the British Library, which students can use for reference.
There are three fully-equipped computer labs with high-speed internet access via the Server of the University of London. Access to online resources, including the online library of the University of Wales, which is one of the most comprehensive in the UK, is available to KCB students.
