Tammy Naidoo

President of Kent Union

Tammy represents University of Kent students to make sure all are given the opportunity to have the best experience possible at University. Today, the Union has 600 employees, 2,000 volunteers, 320 sports clubs and societies and 9,000 students taking part Union Life.

Tammy first started at Kent in September 2011 being drawn to the University’s attractive campus

and high ranking for Archaeology. As a student, Tammy took an active role in University life and was elected Keynes President in her 3rd year. As part of her role she led a team of welcome helpers in Fresher's week, helping new students arriving and organising events for them in that exciting first week at University. She also took a leading role in the organising of Keynes College’s annual battle of the bands, known as Keynestock!

Paris Centre


Canterbury and Rome have been linked since the Middle Ages by the pilgrimage route Via Francigena. The University of Kent is currently expanding programmes at our newest European centre in Rome, taking advantage city’s wealth of history, architecture, and art, and offering students a unique opportunity to have direct access to archaeological sites, museums, and galleries.

Both the School of Arts and the School of European Culture and

Languages offer programmes with an opportunity to spend a term studying in Rome. Students begin their one-year MA in the world heritage city of Canterbury and relocate in the spring term to The American University of Rome, at their lovely campus atop the Janiculum Hill. While enjoying the benefits of a traditional campus and university facilities in Rome, students will have the additional resources of Rome’s specialized and extensive libraries.

Preventing genetic disorders

School of Biosciences: Professor Darren Griffin, Professor Alan Handyside

Darren Griffin and Alan Handyside’s research has been used to develop new techniques that are being used in IVF clinics around the world. Applied to families where there is a high risk of genetic disorders, the process – known as ‘karyomapping’ – has helped to ensure births of unaffected children.

The impact of this research has also been extended beyond clinical applications. Adaptations are being translated for use in livestock breeding regimes, to improve meat yields and reduce environmental concerns.
