    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.

    Academic Advisers can also signpost you to the wide variety of student support services aimed at improving your academic performance or more specialist support services for welfare advice.

    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.
