What are the best things about studying at your university?

2017

"We have a beautiful university that is filled with many people from all over the world and it's easy to make new friends. There is a lot to do at Kent plus we're close to some fab cities. The university itself gives you plenty of support and is a safe place to attend."
"There is such a strong international community, which is perfect for those studying languages! There are also so many opportunities to get involved with societies, sports teams, the union and the university."
"The campus has everything you need including a grocery store, a club and a newly refurbished library. We have award-winning lecturers and great employability services."
"There's a good level of teaching and it's the only UK university to let bio-anth students use real skeletons. Experts in the field of anthropology teach their specialities here. There's a great library and we have very good mental health and well-being services."
"It is a campus university so provides a good social life. Both the students' union and university staff are helpful if you have any problems."
"Some of the seminar leaders and lectures are excellent and clearly have a passion for teaching and a huge amount of knowledge on the subject."
"Being challenged and pushed to explore new ideas. An abundance of incredibly knowledgeable lecturers with passion for the subjects. Great facilities both academically and for sports. The good location of a beautiful and quiet campus that's close to London."
"Meeting people from such diverse backgrounds and from so many different places. The campus life and the facilities it and the town centre have to offer. The ease of travelling within Canterbury and to London."
"As a campus university, everything is within easy reach. Lessons are never too far away and it is ideal to have the library at the centre of campus as it's close to the shops and nightclub. Our location in the country is also ideal with beach resorts close by and London less than an hour away on the train."
"Everyone is very friendly, the tutors are very helpful and the overall atmosphere just makes you feel at ease."

2016

"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."
