Hazel Lander

Study Abroad & Exchanges Officer at the University of Kent

I started at the University as a temp in 1992, working in a number of different departments but my most rewarding role was with the International Office.

I manage the Study Abroad Office, for both the incoming and outgoing exchange and study abroad students from countries outside of Europe. The largest cohort come from the US, with Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, China and South America being other popular destinations.

I also represent Kent at Study Abroad Fairs and Exhibitions in the US, where I often have the pleasure of meeting up with our alumni.

Over the years, I have been lucky enough to visit virtually all our exchange partners. I am passionate about study abroad, and hope that my enthusiasm filters through to the students.

My aim for the future is to reach out to more students so they understand the benefits of studying abroad.

Medway's Drill Hall building


Our vibrant Medway campus, close to the river Medway and partly based at The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, houses innovative, award-winning buildings and offers an exciting social life with a strong sense of community.

We are part of a unique partnership with the University of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church University, known collectively as Universities at Medway.

The site was built originally as a naval base, HMS Pembroke, at the start of the 20th century. Kent moved onto the Medway campus in 2005, and most of our buildings are new or have been completely renovated. For example, the Grade II listed Drill Hall Library, study facilities include purpose-built studios and music rehearsal rooms, three industry-standard newsrooms and a private sports treatment clinic.

Law Clinic

Kent Law Clinic

The award-winning Kent Law Clinic is based in the Kent Law School

The Law Clinic is a partnership between students, academics and solicitors and barristers in private practice locally, including alumni of the Law School and Clinic who are now qualified and practising.

The Clinic has two purposes: to provide a free legal advice and representation service to those in the community who cannot afford to pay, and to enhance the legal and rounded education of law

students through their supervised conduct of cases for clients. The Clinic has received numerous awards recognising and celebrating its work. In 2007 it was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, with staff and students from the Clinic collecting the award from the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The Clinic recently triumphed at The Lawyer Awards winning ‘Ethical Initiative of the Year Award’ at The Lawyer Awards 2014.
