About the faculty

The Faculty of Business and Social Sciences combines Kingston Business School and the School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences. Together they cultivate critical thinking and a problem-solving approach to learning, with an international outlook.

Whilst studying here, you can explore society's biggest questions from a variety of subject perspectives. You can gain insight from industry, public sector and community services professionals, as well as research-active academics with specialist areas of expertise. Crucially, this enables you to engage in the bigger picture and graduate with the transferable skills required to prosper in challenging careers.

Kingston Business School has been awarded the prestigious international accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) in recognition of the excellence of our business education. This accreditation has been earned by just 5% of the world's business schools. Many courses are also accredited and recognised by professional bodies, including the Association of MBAs and the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

The School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences offers a range of psychology courses that are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). You can also choose to study one of only a few degrees in the UK offering a specialist forensic psychology qualification. Our politics and human rights courses are taught by international practitioners including the ex-Campaigns Director of Amnesty International UK and current Director of the British Institute of Human Rights.

We are continuously innovating the way business and social science students think and problem-solve, in order to meet the demands of our rapidly-changing world. Study here and be a part of shaping this world.

The teaching has been fantastic at Kingston. The lecturers encourage you to achieve your potential and because the lecturers believe in the students, the students ultimately produce good results.
