Parents and family

Welcome to Kent

We have created these pages in recognition of your need for information as parents and carers of our potential students. We hope you find the information useful and helps to answer some of the questions you may have regarding your son or daughter’s transition into higher education.

This website will guide you through each step of the process: from choosing a course, making an application, understanding student finance, receiving an offer of a place to starting at university.  We also include a little of what Kent has to offer.

It is never too soon (or too late!) to start thinking about university and we hope the information on these pages will help you to make an informed and successful decision.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always willing to help and have a dedicated team of Information Officers who will be happy to assist you.

We wish your son or daughter every success in their future studies.
