Kent’s School of Computing is home to world-class research and teaching. We are a welcoming and inclusive community, supporting our students to achieve their goals. Our excellent links with industry ensure that you develop the skills you need to be successful in your career.

Open Days and Virtual Tours

Undergraduate Virtual Open Day

Choosing a university is a big decision. Our Virtual Open Days are an opportunity for you to chat to our academic staff through a webchat or during a webinar, take a virtual tour of the campus and find out more about our programmes. 

Our most recent Virtual Open Day took place on Wednesday 6 January - you can watch it on demand here.

Virtual Tours

Although you are not able to explore our campus and facilities in person, you can still take our virtual Canterbury Campus walkthrough, and explore via a virtual tour.

International events

We are also running a series of virtual events for International applicants.

Have you chosen a year in industry?

All of our degrees can be studied with or without an industrial placement after your second year. From local councils to tech companies, our students are supported to find the placement that is right for them.
