University of Kent
7.5 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 82 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"There are a lot of great sports clubs. However, to join them you have to pay a gym membership. It's pretty expensive and may mean people get excluded from sports, particularly when there is an expensive team membership to pay on top of that. However, there is an amazing selection of both sports and societies. You have great opportunities through them as well as the chance to take responsibility by being on a committee."
