Welcome to Kent!

Welcome to Kent

We can't wait to see you!

New students

We hope you're getting excited about September! We certainly are, and we're planning all sorts of activities and events to get you settled into life at Kent. 

We'll be keeping in touch with you by email, and will be updating these pages in the coming weeks with all the essential information you need, including:

  • When and how to enrol
  • When you can move into your accommodation
  • Information for international arrivals
  • Welcome Week events


Everyone has been very welcoming. As a new student, I felt settled within a week, so I could focus on making friends, getting to know the town and travelling around.
