Quality and reputation
University league tables
Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2010: King’s is ranked 47th in the world for Life Sciences. The institution as a whole is ranked 7th in the UK and 77th in the top 200 universities in the world.
The National Student Survey 2010 results show a student satisfaction rate of 89% in the areas of Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology: this was the highest result for any London institution offering degrees in Anatomy and Human Sciences.
The quality of our teaching is high. Members of the Department of Anatomy & Human Sciences have frequently been voted for and won King’s annual awards for Teaching Excellence, by medical and science students. For example, Dr Alistair Hunter, Academic Manager of the Dissection Room, won the School of Medicine Teaching Excellence Award in 2007/8.
Our Demonstrators have consistently achieved 100% pass rates at the MRCS examinations run by the Royal College of Surgeons.
Departmental awards are given annually to those students who have achieved exceptional academic results or who have made a significant contribution to the Department or the School. We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of the donors who have made these awards possible.
