The University of Kent's BA in Journalism is officially the country's most appreciated undergraduate programme - according to the results of this year's National Student Survey.

The 2020 NSS saw our journalism degree score a massive 97.67% in oversall satisfaction - the most significant measure of a course's success according to its students. This is the best score of the 49 universities in the UK that have journalism programmes at undergraduate level.

Other notable scores for the Centre for Journalism in the invidual components of the NSS include:

  • 94.58% approval rating for being part of a learning community (first in the country)
  • 91.86% approval rating for the quality of teaching (third in the country)
  • 90.96% approval rating for academic support (fifth in the country) 


A huge thanks to all of our academic staff, sessional tutors and professional services team who have helped to make this department such a great place to study - and of course a massive thanks to the students who have worked so hard this year under incredibly difficult circumstances.
