Professor Richard Scase

Professor Richard Scase

Emeritus Professor in the School of Social Policy and Sociology and one of the world's leading business forecasters

Richard spent the whole of his academic career at Kent, rising from probationary Assistant Lecture in 1967 to full Professorship in 1982. A prolific writer of books and academic articles, he has also written several reports commissioned by the UK government, EC and the UN and most recently the ICAEW. He has given more than 1000 presentations at major conference

centres and venues, speaking alongside global political and business leaders and celebrities to professional, corporate and industry audiences across the world. In these he focuses upon major demographic, economic and social trends and how these are likely to shape our future world. He is a great lover of 'American Song Book' music and for this reason, through the Richard Scase Music Fund, he supports the University's Big Band that encourages student talent in this genre.

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.
