The University

The University of Kent is far and away one of the best universities in the UK.

It’s a semi-collegiate, public research university based in the leafy, picturesque countryside of Kent in the south of England.

The University has more than one campus, but the main one is located in the north of Canterbury, close to our University of Kent accommodation. Canterbury is a beautiful, ancient city bursting with English history. Just staying here while studying will add an extra, inspiring, element to your overall university experience. You won’t be short of friends when studying at this popular university, either. Every year, the University of Kent attracts over 6,000 students who come to live in uni accommodation close to the various campuses. The students are dispersed across the central campus, as well as the Medway and Tonbridge campuses.

Not only does the university centre itself in the Kent area, but there also exist specialist postgraduate centres in Paris and Brussels. So if you fancy an adventure and want to continue studying after you graduate, stick with the University of Kent!

The University offers an enormous, wide range of courses to choose from, from Accounting to Religious Studies.

Whether it be a foundation, undergraduate or postgraduate degree, there’s something for every stage of life and level. There are also study abroad and year in industry opportunities, as well as summer schools, and a generous scholarship scheme.

Add to that mix our incredible University of Kent accommodation, and you’re sure to have the time of your life at uni in Kent, enriching your academic knowledge while meeting new friends and having new life experiences.

The University of Kent also hosts over 175 clubs and societies, allowing students to be part of a wider community and make the most out of their university experience.
