Your student experience

Discover what being a Kent student is all about.

Our students are diverse, passionate and independent, and our award-winning support and inspirational teachers make sure they are at the heart of everything we do.

Student support

Our dedicated Student Support team is responsible for providing a range of support services for undergraduate and postgraduate students. The team is here to support you to realise your potential by offering advice on pastoral, personal health and welfare concerns.

Student Support is part of the Division of Natural Sciences. The Division comprises an experienced team from across all subject areas that provides support, knowledge and expertise on all student-related issues, including programmes of study, student experience and employability.  

As a Kent student, you also have access to mentors and a personal academic adviser, and we can offer extra individual support by working closely with our central Student Support and Wellbeing team.

At Kent, we pride ourselves on an inspirational student experience. We aim to provide the platform you need to succeed, whatever your plans for the future. The central student experience pages have more information about campus wide experiences.

Within the Division we have a dedicated employability team who support students on a day-to-day basis and with any placements. 

We also have the Careers and Employabilty Service who run events such as improving your CV and how to be assertive. 

Every year there is the employability festival where the Careers and Employability Service; Academic Schools and Professional Services come together to offer presentations, workshops, guest speakers, industry experts and fairs.

When you start at Kent, we hold ‘meet and mingle’ events to help you settle into life here and meet your fellow students. You can also join – or even set up – a student-run society, which provides a great opportunity to meet up with those who share your passion for science.
