Kingston University’s teaching is frequently rated as among the best in the UK.

According to The Times, “Kingston remains one of the best deals in higher education. Its record on teaching quality puts it in the vanguard of the modern university sector and is a match for many older institutions. Students have caught on and now more apply to Kingston than to any other London-based university.” (The Sunday Times, September 2007).
