The information published on this page shows:

  • The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants.
  • The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications.
  • The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us.
  • The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us.

It also shows these numbers by reference to:

  • the gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • their ethnicity
  • their socioeconomic background.
It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.

Kent context

The University of Kent has long been committed to the provision of higher education to all those who could benefit and has delivered major innovation and success in widening participation.

We are committed to ensuring that all our students, regardless of background, are given appropriate support to succeed; not just in the completion of their educational qualifications, but in becoming successful and productive citizens through engagement in graduate level employment or in the furtherance of their educational careers.

For further information about the University of Kent’s activities, projects and targets in widening participation and how we support all our students to develop and achieve please read our Access and Participation Plan.

If you are considering studying at university, we’d love to hear from you. Kent accepts a wide range of qualifications, and considers applications on the basis of academic potential, not just academic history.

In line with UCAS application processing, we do receive or use any data on applicants’ ethnicity when making offers.
