Kent: The UK's European University?


Kent in the EU

With the European Union rerefendum almost upon us, we have been speaking to staff, students and alumni about the influence that the EU has had on their time at Kent. Be it an opportunity to spend time studying at another European institution, a research collaboration or funding, the impact of the EU is unmistakable. Hear about their experiences inside.

Join the conversation

The University hosts a huge range of events at our campuses and further afield - including lectures, receptions, reunions and many more! This year, we've also introduced two new series of events to encourage discussion and dialogue, which welcome viewers from around the world to participate via social media. Find out more about Think Kent and the In Conversation series, and how you can get involved.
