Student Support and Wellbeing

We encourage all new students who have additional support needs to contact us before the beginning of the academic year.

Don't forget!

Complete the pre-arrival process:

Once your place has been confirmed, we'll let you know when you can enrol. Enrolment is usally available from 1 August.

We'll email you when your Kent IT Account is ready. You should receive your email within three working days after enrolling.

The method of payment is dependent on who is responsible for your tuition fees.

See our Documents FAQ if you're unsure what documents you need to bring with you.

You should aim to apply by mid-December 2018. If you have not already applied for accommodation, please apply online.

Our Expect Respect@kent module, introduces the Student Charter, Dignity at Study Policy and other information about our support services.

We have an experienced team of professional support assistants, counsellors, advisers and mentors.
