University of Kent
7.4 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 82 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"The location is not the best for a university. The accommodation is not on the campus and the facilities are shared with two other universities and yet there is not much available for students. There are some adequate facilities on campus and the student accommodation is very good, but very expensive. There is not much to do in the area except go to the library or go to get something to eat in one of the cafés if they are open."
