2016

"Kent is one of the best, if not the best, university for international students. There is so much support provided, including on-campus accommodation for all years at university."
"There is a festival that promotes diversity and there are other events for students of different backgrounds."
"The university has many international students so you are bound to hear multiple languages on your way to and from lectures. Also, people of all income backgrounds attend the University of Kent. Many of my friends come from different backgrounds but we all get on really well as everyone is considered equal at the university."
"I think it does due to to the fantastic support it gives all students. For international students, they offer an English class to help them with complex texts and other problems as well as a student adviser that can help them with essays. For students with a disability, the uni can cater to that and have specialist support for students who require it. All students can ask for help from the student advisory service, whether it's about careers or for checking essays by reading them through. If there are any problems generally, they can help with that too."
"I think it does because it is the UK's European university. I think that a large amount of the student population is from other countries."
"International nights, international food festival, international fayre in March."
"They do attract people from all corners of the globe. There are several open days and they offer work experience in other countries, which creates an international presence."
"It's a European university and has bases in Athens, Brussels and Paris. There are many societies/networks for foreign students."
"We are the UK's European university! We have links to universities all over the world and offer exchange programmes and years-abroad experiences."
"Kent prides itself on being the UK's European university, with campuses across Europe and a high number of international students. The university makes sure to take care of the different cultural needs."
