Campus building

King's is the 'fun' university of London. We're slap bang in the middle of the world's best city, making us a rather big deal. Our five campuses are filled with academically driven, sports loving, volunteering and sociable students, with an active Students' Union who proudly promotes diversity, equality and fairness. Desmond Tutu, Florence Nightingale and John Keats all studied at King's.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Dentistry qualifications are a savvy choice if a solid and stable career is top of your priority list. It's one of the very few degrees out there able to rival medicine for the strongest employability prospects and starting salary around. The recession appears to have barely touched early career options available for new dentists - almost all graduates get dental jobs on leaving their courses.
