Plan your day

We'll post you a copy of the programme so you can see what's on and what you'd like to do. We recommend seeing what academic talks you'd like to attend, and then planning your day around these.

All academic schools and our professional service departments have a stand in the Sports Centre, so you'll have time to pick up additional information and speak to staff throughout the day.

How to get here

The Canterbury campus has excellent transport links and is easy to get to from London. Take a look at our Maps and Directions page to plan your journey.
