The University of Kent is your local university with a gold rating in the UK Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework. We offer around 400 undergraduate degrees, from Accounting to Wildlife Conservation, so whether you’ve just finished your A levels or been working for a while, you have lots of opportunities to discover your path at Kent.
Kent’s diverse, supportive student community will welcome you. Our award-winning student support team is dedicated to helping all our students to succeed, and we have an on-site careers centre with experienced advisers to help you get a head start in your career. Our employability scheme provides opportunities for internships and other work experience; if you’re a budding entrepreneur, our Aspire programme can help you turn your business ideas into reality.
University isn’t only about achieving academic success. It’s also about the experiences you have – and you don’t have to live on campus to make the most of uni life. With over 150 student societies and sports clubs, you can have a go at everything from a new sport to running the student radio station or volunteering. Whether you’re passionate about sustainability, want to improve people’s health, or help local communities, there’s lots you can do here to make a difference.
"There is no template for a Kent student; people come from many different countries and all over the UK"
We welcome students from many different cultures and backgrounds, which creates a unique and inspiring community. As Politics and International Relations student Nadia says: “There is no template for a Kent student; people come from many different countries and all over the UK.” Our campuses are easy to reach by road and rail with excellent public transport links. The huge library at the heart of the 300-acre Canterbury campus has stunning views across the city, while at Medway outstanding modern teaching facilities are located within the fascinating surroundings of Chatham Historic Dockyard.
