The University of Kent is a semi-collegiate public research university based in Kent, United Kingdom. 97% of the university’s research was judged to be of international quality in the Research Excellence Framework. The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 ranked Kent in 25th place in the UK.

Kent Union, the students’ union at Canterbury, is run by the students, for the students. It gives students a voice, it helps them to fulfil their potential and makes sure they get the most out of their student experience.

The university has over 175 clubs and societies covering academic, professional, social and special interests. Try as many as you can to find out if you are a chess grand master, a natural performer, or the next great baker. On campus, there is a variety of bars and events which include music, dancing and quizzes. Whether you are heading to The Gulbenkian, K-Bar, Mungo’s, or Origins Bar & Grill, they are all great places to grab a bite to eat, a quick drink after classes or to just hang out with friends.

The county of Kent is known as ‘The Garden of England’. It is one of the most picturesque areas in the country and despite its proximity to London, actually feels worlds away. Kent’s 350-mile coastline is one of the longest and most diverse coastlines in the country. During the second and third years at Kent, many students live in the seaside towns of Whitstable and Herne Bay, or the market town of Faversham.


Canterbury campus

Canterbury campus was founded in 1965 with just 500 students. Now, it has around 16,500 students from 158 nationalities and a very cosmopolitan feel. Their self-contained Canterbury campus provides a welcoming environment and a close-knit student community. Campus life revolves around six colleges, the Templeman Library, the Gulbenkian arts centre and the Mandela Building (home of Kent Union); all set among green and tranquil open spaces.

The city itself has a warm and friendly atmosphere; medieval buildings, lively bars, atmospheric pubs and a wide range of shops just a 25-minute walk from campus. London is an hour away by train and Canterbury is also the closest UK city to mainland Europe, so you can be in Paris, Brussels or Lille within two hours.

Medway campus

The Medway campus is evenly friendly and close-knit, with students from a variety of backgrounds working and socialising together. The Medway campus is close to the towns of Rochester and Chatham, with their fascinating histories, and part of the redeveloped Chatham Maritime area. Wherever you come from, when you arrive on campus, you will find lots to do and some interesting people to meet.

The campus has two sites, Pembroke, and The Historic Dockyard Chatham. It is just a 10-minute walk from one to the other, so it is easy to make the most of the facilities on each site. Medway campus is one hour and a half away from
