Kent’s Master’s and doctoral students, academic and research staff are welcomed into a strong scholarly and supportive social community which is rich in activity, culture and diversity, and extends across our academic Schools, Centres, Divisions, campuses and two European centres.
Our postgraduates and colleagues benefit from a rich, stimulating and challenging intellectual community in which students are encouraged to work closely with academic staff. We also advise students and staff to develop and expand their skills by presenting their research, participating in conferences and publishing papers.
We offer a strong framework of specialist support and dedicated services across the University, which extends to both students and staff. Kent encourages all members of our community to take an active role in extracurricular activities and to focus on their wellbeing and that of their colleagues.
