School improves ranking in Complete University Guide 2016

The Kent School of Economics has improved its position in two categories in the Complete University Guide 2016; we have risen by one place to 8th in the UK for Student Satisfaction, and have jumped 8 points for Graduate Prospects, with a total of 78% of students being employed in graduate positions or further study. Overall, the School is placed a hair’s breadth outside the top third of Economics departments in the UK.

Our scores in the Complete University Guide underpin our consistent top 10 position in other national league tables:

  • 5th for career prospects, 8th for Satisfaction with Teaching, 11th for Satisfaction with the Course, and 9th overall in The Guardian University Guide 2016
  • 6th for teaching and 7th for Academic Support in the National Student Survey 2014
  • 10th for Student Satisfaction in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015
  • 8th for Research Intensity – a new measure used for the first time in the Complete University Guide this year

Head of School, Alastair Bailey, said: ‘Our continued success in the Economics tables reflects, in no small part, the School’s focus on teaching excellence, and student experience and outcomes, and I am extremely pleased that the School has again been recognised for the quality of teaching and support offered to students.’
