Undergraduate Applicant Event information

Had an offer from us? Congratulations!

The next step is to book your place on one of our Applicant Events. Read on!

Why should I come to an Applicant Event?

Our Applicants Events are more tailored than an Open Day so you'll get to know the campus better, spend time with your department, quiz our professors about the different aspects of your course and get to know other applicants or, as we like to put it, meet the friends you haven't made yet!  By the time you go home, you'll know you're making the right decision when you make Kent your firm choice on UCAS.

How to book

In-person events

Our in-person Applicant Events will begin in February 2023. View the full list of Applicant Event dates so you can pick a date that works for you, then check out the how to book your Applicant event guide.

Virtual events 

We will be offering some virtual Applicant Events. Some are especially for international applicants who can't attend in person, others are for general attendance. You can find the dates, details and booking links on the Applicant Event Dates page

Get in touch

We're always happy to hear from you. If you have a question about the Applicant Events, whether it's relating to a booking or you're just looking for more information, then get in touch with our friendly team via your applicant portal and we'll be happy to help. 

We'll see you soon!
