Applicant Events 2022
If you are currently holding an offer to study at Kent, you can book a place on an Applicant Day.
On Wednesday 11 May, join us on Zoom to discover what it will be like studying one of our STEM subjects at the University of Kent. You’ll have the opportunity to meet your lecturers, hear from our current students and ask us any questions you may have before making Kent your first choice.

Undergraduate Open Day
Choosing a university is a big decision. Our Open Days are an opportunity for you to chat to our academic staff, take a tour of the campus and find out more about our programmes. You can choose to meet us on campus or at a virtual event.
Check for upcoming Open Days here.
We are also running a series of virtual events for International applicants.
Why choose Kent?
The short video below will give you an insight into what it is like to be a student in the School of Computing. Our student stories blog is another great place to find out what it is like to be a Kent student.
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.
In addition to Kent's Student Support and Wellbeing Service, you can access a range of support in the School of Computing.
Student Support Team
The Student Support Team provides advice and support on any pastoral or academic issues, and can also help you access other forms of support available at Kent. You can visit them at their offices in Cornwallis South.
You can contact them before you arrive at Kent at CEMSSupport@kent.ac.uk
Your Academic Adviser
Each student at Kent is assigned an Academic Adviser. Your Academic Adviser stays the same throughout your undergraduate studies, and can provide personalised 1:1 academic advice and guidance throughout your studies. They may or may not teach you directly but will have specialist knowledge of your programme of study. Your Academic Adviser will also contact you to arrange meetings with you. During the meetings you’ll cover important topics such as how you are managing university life, details relating to your course, your module choices and to how best support you going forward.
Employability and Placements Team
The Employability and Placements Team can guide you through all the work-based opportunities available to you as a student, including skills workshops and inspirational speakers. They also provide advice and support on your Year in Industry, including CV workshops, mock interviews, help finding a placement, and application guidance. We also visit you during your placement year to see how you're getting on!
Student Success and Attainment Team
This team covers a broad spectrum of different activities including looking after our student reps and societies, planning student events, answering general student enquiries, collecting student feedback (for example via our student voice forums) and planning activities to help you to make connections and to promote equality, diversity and inclusivity.
Keep in touch
Join the official Facebook Fresher's Group for students starting in September 2022, to get updates from the university and meet other students on your course!
You can also chat to current University of Kent staff and students via UniBuddy. Feel free to ask us anything about studying or living at Kent.
