Our self-contained Canterbury campus provides a welcoming environment and a close-knit student community. Campus life revolves around six colleges -our school is based in Keynes college, as well as the Templeman Library, the Gulbenkian arts centre, the Venue, our own nightspot and the Mandela Building (home of Kent Union) – all set among green and tranquil open spaces.

The historic city is now a warm and lively hub for two universities and an art school and a 25-minute walk from campus. London is an hour away by high-speed train and we're also the closest UK city to mainland Europe, so you can be in Paris in two hours.
