Join the University of Kent in Clearing and become part of its vibrant, inclusive campus community.
Join a university renowned for research and outstanding teaching and get “career-ready” as you
learn from experts in industry-standard facilities. There’s a reason why Kent is one of the Top 50
universities in the country (Complete University Guide 2023). Kent’s two campuses provide first-class
specialist laboratories, spacious teaching facilities and well-resourced libraries designed to support a
wide range of learners. There are opportunities to gain valuable experience by spending a year
working in industry or a year studying abroad.
But it's not all about study here – there's so much you can do beyond your degree. Join some of the
hundreds of societies and sports clubs, with interests ranging from American football to gaming;
hockey to film. There are also societies for a variety of different nationalities and cultural heritages;
LGBTQIA+ students, as well as faith groups and mature student groups. If there isn’t a society that
represents your interests, you can start your own and find other like-minded students.
The Canterbury campus is set in 300 acres of beautiful Kent parkland and has public transport links
offering easy access to coast and countryside. The Medway campus is set by the river in a fascinating
mix of modern and historical buildings and is just 40 minutes from London by train. There’s a
fantastic choice of accommodation on Kent’s welcoming campuses, and new students will
get free Gym/Sports Centre membership for the entirety of their first year.
Award-winning academic, financial and mental health support is provided by a dedicated student
support team; and the university has an engaged and proactive careers team on hand to assist you
with your future aspirations. There are nurseries available on both campuses, and Kent also offers a
variety of postgraduate options.
Join Kent this September and start building your future.
