At Kent, we help you to make the most of your time at university by providing a range of academic support as well as advice on important areas that impact on your everyday life, such as housing and funding.

Support network

Academic support is not just available within your school, you can also get confidential help and advice from the following services:

Specialist facilities

Alongside traditional academic facilities such as our well-stocked library, electronic resources and study hubs, all professionally focused programmes at Medway are supported by state-of-the-art facilities.

University Entrance Diploma

A full-time course designed for students who enjoy learning but want an alternative to traditional A levels or BTEC courses.

Delivered at the University of Kent's Medway campus, this innovative new course qualifies successful students for entry to higher education and offers the opportunity to explore a range of subjects in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Please note that places on the course are limited and priority will be given to 16-19 year olds who live in targeted areas where participation in higher education is low.

The Hub

The Hub doesn't only support clubs and societies, arrange fun events and volunteering opportunities, it also supports you when you need help.

The Advice Centre in the Student Hub provides free, confidential and impartial advice on various topics, including academic issues, finance, student funding, immigration and housing. The Centre offers appointments and drop-in sessions for less complicated issues.
