About the institution

The University of Kent has established itself as the ‘UK’s European university’ through its postgraduate centres in Rome, Athens, Brussels and Paris, and through offering a range of courses with a European focus. Its UK campuses are in Canterbury and Medway and there is also a centre in Tonbridge for students on part-time courses. Students at Medway share the purpose-built ‘Universities at Medway’ development, near Chatham’s historic dockyard, with students from the University of Greenwich and Christ Church Canterbury.
