You are more than your grades
We understand that applying for university can be stressful, especially when you are also studying for exams. Choose Kent as your firm choice on UCAS and we will guarantee you a place, even if you narrowly miss your offer*.
When we consider applications, we have a supportive attitude. This means looking at each student’s circumstances as a whole before deciding whether to make an offer to study here. We take the same, flexible, approach when we receive your exam results.
*For example, by 1 A Level grade. Exceptions apply. Please note that we are unable to offer The Kent Guarantee to those who have already been given a reduced or contextual offer.
