Graduates of Kent’s School of Economics are among the most employable in the UK, according to the Guardian University Guide 2016. The School is ranked 5th in the UK for career prospects, with 86% of students finding graduate-level jobs or further study within six months of graduation. The 2016 table, published in today’s Guardian newspaper, also reveals that the School is ranked 9th overall, placing us in the top 10 economics departments in the country. Other scores include 8th for both Satisfaction with Teaching and Satisfaction with the Course.
Dr Alastair Bailey, Head of School, commented, “Economics at Kent offers a challenging yet supportive environment for students, and our top 10 position in the Guardian University Guide further highlights our commitment to excellence in teaching and investment in our students’ future.”
The new Guardian table comes just one month after publication of the Complete University Guide 2016, where Economics at Kent was ranked 8th for Student Satisfaction. Other top 10 rankings include 7th overall in the National Student Survey 2014 with a 94% satisfaction rate, 10th for Student Satisfaction in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015.
