QS World University Rankings place Kingston University among top 100 institutions globally for art and design. The latest accolade celebrating the University’s art and design expertise comes at an exciting time for the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture, which will this year be going back to its roots when it returns to its original name as the Kingston School of Art.

Acting Faculty Dean Penny Sparke said the international recognition reflected the University’s long-standing commitment to excellence in art and design education. “The Faculty has always had a high standing in the areas of fine art, design and architecture and has maintained a strong identity through its art school roots at Knights Park,” she said.
“We have forged strong international links and our partnerships with industry create a pathway for graduates to embark on their careers at the cutting-edge of their professions.
 
“This latest ranking demonstrates the creativity, passion and commitment of our staff and students, with the success of our graduates a testament to our ‘thinking through making’ ethos.”  Acting Faculty Dean Penny Sparke
