About Kent

Annual review 2013

Professor Dame Julia M Goodfellow,


For the entire English Higher Education sector, 2013 was dominated by three themes: how institutions would fare when recruiting the second cohort of undergraduates under the higher fees regime; how the provision of education will change to embrace new technology; and preparation for the next review of research excellence across the UK.

These topics are highly relevant to our work at Kent as they challenge us to consider what we offer as a university, how we deliver our education and our research. We have responded well, and I am pleased to tell you that the University remains a successful institution. Our student recruitment is strong, among undergraduates and postgraduates, from the UK and overseas. We are a dynamic institution making innovative use of technology, and we have put together a strong submission of research and impact for the Research Excellence Framework.
