The University of Kent is outward looking and forward-thinking, with academic staff who are leaders in their field, outstanding facilities and award-winning student support. Our programmes are designed to help you sharpen your focus and take a step up in your career.
Awarded TEF Gold for the quality of its teaching, its two spacious campuses provide bright, airy teaching facilities, well-resourced libraries with lots of study space, award-winning personal support and careers guidance. Its welcoming, diverse community runs more than 150 societies and sports clubs.
Kent is proud to be a global university and we have students from 159 nationalities studying at Kent. Many of our degrees offer opportunities to study and work abroad and we have an extensive study abroad programme thanks to our links with universities across the world.
Kent is committed to helping you gain an advantage when the time comes to embark on a career. The University has a range of employment initiatives including internship opportunities, a careers and employability advisory service, Language Express and JobShop. And these initiatives work: more than 95% of Kent undergraduate students who graduated in 2017 and responded to a national survey, were in work or further study within six months (DLHE).
Our academics will inspire you to be inquisitive, ask questions and think independently. Through activities including volunteering, sports and societies, work experience, and Study Plus courses you can take alongside your degree, you'll develop the skills that employers are looking for: confidence, creativity and innovation, critical reflection, global/cultural awareness, integrity and accountability, intellectual curiosity and resilience.
Our commitment to ensuring all our students enjoy a nurturing and supportive environment has been nationally recognised, and we've won the Outstanding Support for Students category at the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards for two years running (2017 and 2018). Our extensive academic and personal support services are available to help you make the most of your university experience and help you achieve your ambitions.
