King’s scoops top place for dentistry – again!
King’s College London Dental Institute has ranked top for dentistry in the Complete University Guide 2012 league table.
This follows hot on the heels of scooping first place for dentistry in this year’s Guardian University Guide.
The Complete University Guide ranks UK universities by assessing their performance in nine quality factors.
The first university league tables were published nearly 20 years ago and have continued to be the subject of vigorous debate among academics ever since.
Professor Nairn Wilson, dean and head of the Dental Institute and deputy vice principal for health at King’s College London, said: ‘This success is attributable to the great team effort in the Institute and is recognition of all the hard work that has gone into developing the educational processes and the student experience.
‘The Institute, however, will continue to strive to further develop its standing as a centre of excellence in dental workforce development.’
