Student life

A world of opportunities

There's so much more to Kent than lectures and seminars. Make the most of our flexible study options to create the best student experience and get the degree you want.

It's your degree so make it your own at Kent. Customise your studies with elective modules, a year abroad, a year in industry and a whole host of extra-curricular courses.

The teaching is excellent, aided by the research activity of the staff

A great teacher doesn't just teach you, they inspire you. We are renowned for a teaching style that brings your subject to life and encourages you to think independently.

The campus becomes your home – I feel like I have two homes now.

There may be no place like home, but if you choose to live in our accommodation, it will soon feel like a second home.

Discover all you need to know about your home at Kent, and view our accommodation options at Canterbury and Medway

Go abroad

Going abroad as part of your degree is an amazing experience. You'll grow in confidence, enhance your employability and return to university inspired and motivated ready to excel in your final year.

We have numerous international study and work placements available and we'll support you every step of the way.
