Kingston University's social work, sports science, mathematics and actuarial mathematics and statistics courses have topped the national leader board for student satisfaction.

The programmes each received 100% satisfaction ratings from final year students in the annual National Student Survey (NSS).

In addition to scoring high levels of satisfaction across a number of other individual subject areas, Kingston University also performed well against the sector nationally and compared to most other institutions across London. It also received an overall student satisfaction rating of 80.5%, up slightly on its score of 80.1% recorded in 2017.

Commenting on the results, Vice-Chancellor Professor Steven Spier, said: "We are determined to provide our students with the best possible teaching and campus experience to thrive and succeed and have been making significant improvements to ensure they get the most out of their time completing their degrees."

"By the time our students graduate, we want to ensure they are ready to step into the world armed with the knowledge, skills and confidence sought after by employers and that will also allow them to make a real difference to society as they develop their careers. The success we have witnessed in social work, sport science, mathematics and actuarial mathematics and statistics exemplifies the very essence of the qualities we are so keen to instill in our students as they constantly grow as individuals acquiring additional knowledge and skills."
