The Nutrition and Dietetics subject area at Kingston University has the top NSS score in London and nationally for 15 out of 27 NSS 2023 questions, scoring 100% in the positivity measure for all 15 questions. This is the highest number of questions to achieve 100% in the positivity measure across all providers in the Nutrition and Dietetics subject area (there are 42 providers with NSS data for 2023).

Our facilities

Our modern nutrition kitchen is a dedicated space that has been designed to the latest specifications. It is a flexible and inviting teaching space which we use for food science practicals, research projects and student nutrition society events along with small group teaching (e.g. assignment and revision tutorials) and personal tutor meetings.

Our exercise physiology laboratory has sophisticated equipment that allows us to measure the physiological responses to exercise, such as: oxygen consumption, fat oxidation, heart rate, blood pressure and haematological responses, along with facilities to assess these in alternate environmental conditions through use of our altitude and heat chambers.

We have a number of ergometers (e.g. treadmill, cycle, rowing kayak) for analysing sports-specific performance.
