Dentistry lecturers paid the most for second year running
Bet they’re loving it
Faculty members of the dental institute can boast a second consecutive year at the top of the money pile at King’s, earning an average salary of £51,150.45.
They were closely followed up by The Dickson Poon School of Law, who earn £50,966.09.
The data comes from mean average salaries of all staff in each faculty for this academic year which were released by KCL.
Bottom of the salary chart for 2014/15 is the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, with just £35,363.60 – over £15,000 less than the tooth experts.
In comparison to last year, however, three of the six faculties have seen their average salaries go down.
High flying Dentistry has decreased by over £250, Humanities by over £240, and Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience by almost a staggering £7,000.00.
On a brighter note, certain faculties have experienced a welcome increase -for example for the Florence Nightingale school of Nursing and Midwifery has gone up by over £450.00.
Other positive changes include Social Science and Public Policy, and Natural and Mathematical Sciences, both going up by £1045 and £544 respectively.
First year English student Teuta Hoxha said: “Lecturers having a high pay makes sense.
“We trust them to educate us, pass down their knowledge from student to student, generation to generation. In the end they are providing a public service… albeit at £9,000 for the students.”
