Why did you apply to study at Kent (new students) or what is your favourite thing about Kent Uni (returning students)? I particularly wanted to study marketing and the course offered everything I wanted. When I attended the open day it confirmed to me Kent university was the place I wanted to study. Plus, it allows me to continue to train locally, with my team in South London where my coach is also the GB women’s coach.
