Parents and Supporters

Welcome to the University of Kent. We hope your son or daughter is feeling positive about their exams, looking forward to the summer and starting university in September. 

We're here to support you as you support them. If you'd like more information about Clearing, our Clearing Guide for Parents and Supporters has everything you need to know ahead of results day. You can also sign up to receive Clearing updates from us. 

We'd love to meet you

We're holding Open Days at Medway on Saturday 24 June and at Canterbury on Saturday 1 July. We'll also be running guided Campus Tours throughout the summer.

Cost of Living support

We understand that the rising costs of living are having an impact on many families, and that many prospective students are concerned about whether university is affordable. 

Find out about the support we've already put in place including fixed price accommodation with no utility bills, travel discounts, subsidised meals, and free sports membership.
