University of Kent


What are the best things about studying at your university?


"The campus is lovely, the course is interesting and the university has a great pastoral system. It's also incredibly busy with loads of societies and lots to do outside of academic studies."
"There are good lecturers, good study spaces and a well designed campus. Most buildings are very colourful and appealing. The library is very good with a lot of study space, books and opportunities for group work."
"We have a well stocked library, supportive lecturers and supportive student learning centres. There's a hands on workshop and a helpful students' union with courteous staff."
"The campus and its facilities are great. I like the first-year accommodation (Turing) and how lecturers are available to help you when you have questions."
"The staff are very attentive, the campus is regularly updated, there are a lot of events and societies to join and students are well looked after."
"There are a variety of opportunities and choices in everything from your course of study to recreation. The campus facilities are of a very high standard and there are a lot of opportunities to improve your skills and better yourself."
"It's all in one campus so wherever you need to go will all be in the same area."
"There is a lot of support at hand. The majority of tutors are available when you need help and there are very helpful background workers, such as people behind the reception desk. The placement help was amazing."


"The are many positive things when attending this university. The most important one is that students develop their knowledge and their critical thinking. Professors, doctors and all the teaching staff are at the top of their fields and they are also really helpful with their students. Finally, the equipment and library facilities are very new and updated. There are many events and lectures to attend that are really interesting and educative."
"The atmosphere here is great and everyone is lovely. Staff are helpful and really go the extra mile to do what they can to support you. The library is also amazing, so many thousands of resources at our fingertips."
"The campus and the other students. There is a 'buzz', so to speak, of student life. Canterbury is a lovely place, as is the campus. Some (not all) staff are very interested and, in turn, are able to inspire us about their subjects."
"The university allows me to enhance my employability by holding various careers workshops. This also allows me to interact with different people in a similar subject area."
"The relationship between students and lecturers is very good as everyone is treated as equals. The university allows for students to take extra modules alongside their course, which may be outside of their discipline. The university has many support systems for students offering assistance with well-being and accommodation requirements."
"The campus is the perfect size and the students are incredibly multinational (my closest group of friends are mostly Norwegian)."
"The flexibility of changing modules and the ability to take wild modules (for example, I do music but was able to take a music technology module). The support given to me by the university is brilliant and the careers service is a bonus as, after I graduate, they can still offer me advice."
"I like that it is a campus university as all of the facilities are in one place. It has great transport links to both London and mainland Europe, so it's a great base to travel from."
"Being taught by experts and leaders in their academic fields. Seeing the improvements that are constantly being made to update the campus facilities to suit students' needs, such as the new library development. Also, it's good to see what our money is being put into! The beautiful view of the city and cathedral from the hilltop campus! The placement/international opportunities provided."
"It's a great university with many societies situated in a beautiful city with a great nightlife."
