University of Kent


What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"Canterbury is very small."
"Local nightlife isn't great and there isn't much of a music scene around town."
"I want better facilities for music practice for the money I pay towards my tuition. There are not many good nights out in Medway but the problem can be partially solved by jumping on the shuttle to Canterbury."
"The workload tends to intensify towards the end of the year. The renovations and construction-in-progress are always a nuisance."
"The cost of accommodation and poor students' union."
"Some of the teaching isn't great and you can get little feedback on marked work. There's never a spare seat in the library to study. On-campus accommodation is too expensive and you don't get what you pay for (same goes for on-campus cafe)."
"The location of my campus (it's at the dockyard) makes me feel secluded. However, the addition of other schools joining us recently has diminished that slightly."
"Living costs are high. The accommodation on and around the university is really expensive."
"Lack of a student union. Inconsistency between lecturers of different modules, such as recording lectures and exam prep."
"Not a Russell Group or similarly prestigious university."
