The University of Kent, the UK's European university, is one of the UK's most dynamic universities. It has campuses and centres in Canterbury, Medway, Tonbridge, Paris, and Brussels and is a major educational, economic and cultural force throughout the region.
In the UK government's Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), each of Kent's eighteen academic Schools were judged to produce world leading and internationally recognized research. This research informs teaching on all courses at Kent, ensuring that every student benefits from advanced and groundbreaking learning.

Kent students are part of a diverse community of students from around the world. Twenty three percent of the 19,000 students are international, and many more live and study abroad as part of their degree. The University has established a number of support services to benefit its international population, with academic help, personal support and social events tailored to those studying away from their home country.

The University of Kent is home to students from all over North America and every year, Kent makes a number of visits to North America to meet prospective students at fairs and to hold interview days.

International city

Canterbury has much to attract and satisfy their international student population. From September to June, the population of Canterbury doubles from its influx of students, many of whom are from overseas. In the summer months, the city becomes a thriving tourist hotspot, with visitors from all over Europe and beyond.

Outstanding facilities

From theatres to recording studios, libraries to laboratories, Kent's students learn in a purpose built working environment with top of the range equipment and all that you need to bridge the transition between study and work. The Canterbury campus is built on 300 acres of parkland and is less than 20 minutes walk from Canterbury city centre.

Students also enjoy Kent's first class facilities through their sporting and social lives, with sports centres, nightclubs, restaurants and much more to choose from. Making the most of the surrounding environment, Kent students at Canterbury graduate from Canterbury Cathedral and Medway students from Rochester Cathedral.

'There really is no more amazing experience than studying abroad in another country. I spent a three month semester at the University of Kent, and was absolutely delighted with the entire experience. The only thing I disliked was having to go say goodbye and go back home at the end.

The academic support was absolutely amazing; my professors knew what they were talking about and were always ready and willing to answer questions and provide academic support.

The social aspect of Kent was astonishing too; there was always something going on, something to do, someone to hang out with. It was impossible to be bored at Kent, both socially and academically. University of Kent goes out of its way to make its students feel welcome, and is the experience of a lifetime.'
