My time at university of Kent has been amazing, I’ve been given fantastic opportunities in an amazing campus in an amazing city. My course lecturers and academics have further developed and inspired my interest and have given me the knowledge and support necessary to be successful in the outside world. The accommodation is wonderful and large even if you have to pay a bit more for it! Overall, Kent is an excellent place to study and I would highly recommend everyone to visit it

The Canterbury campus is really good, however the Medway campus leaves much to be desired. My course specifically, the contact lecture hours are tiny compared to other courses, and promises of workshops to make up for no lectures or seminars in the exam term have not been kept.

A corrupt, unsupportive, profit orientated university within which about 90% of the lecturers are condescending, rude and unreasonable. Blatant and extreme favouritism shown to previous Kent students (I am at postgraduate level) so that they are at a massive advantage. Zero empathy and support offered by lecturers to students experiencing mental health difficulties, while being disproportionately concerned by benign absences. Countless ridiculous problems with course structure and grading systems. Extortionate fees while receiving basically nothing in return E.g. gym, clubs and societies are SO EXPENSIVE creating even further socioeconomic divides within the university. I really hate this university, and the only positives I can think of have been with relation to the student wellbeing teams. Overall, it is terrible and I regret ever moving country to attend.

Tbh I enjoyed most of my time at uni of Kent. My biggest troubles came from GK Unions a shabby organisation full of incompetence and fake people. Socialising has been encouraged by the uni but the surrounding area of Medway is life draining and no matter how many free fundraisers Kent puts on everyone would rather stay at home and smoke.

It’s not too bad but lots of my courses lecturers left suddenly reducing our choice for 3rd year modules. They also had a huge problem with our exam time tables and coursework deadlines giving them all at once basically. And to top it all off the timetable and moodle are always down ! Maybe it’s iust my course though :/ Saying this however , the campus is very nice with a friendly atmosphere

Kent is a completely superficial university. In terms of facilities etc. it’s good, but teaching is abysmal, staff only care about themselves and their recognition, and will just exploit phd students who need to work as professors. It deserves to have gone down the tables so fast as it has little desire to help the students, especially with mental health, which there is minimal work with.

Lecturers aren't very helpful and don't seem to care. They say they're always happy for students to ask for help, but for my course so many lecturers were on sabbatical that there were only 5 available for everyone doing a dissertation so the support just wasn't there when it should have been. The mental health facilities for students are terrible, they even admitted that most students 'fall through the cracks' and I know a number of students who suffered because of it. Honestly regret doing my degree there and wish I could go back in time and choose a different university.

Facilities are good, but there is not enough for the amount of students, facilities are also not always maintained: if you’re lucky enough to get a computer it is rarely clean or working. I was disappointed with the quality of education, I understand that university involves a lot of independent work, but for 9K a year I expected more hours, more guidance and better quality education in classes such as seminars. I have felt like I am going into exams and doing essays blind, not knowing what to do due to lack of guidance. When you ask for guidance you often do not get responses and if you do they are not very helpful, seminar leaders seem to have been given little extra guidance than us students. The university often asks students during and at the end of terms to give feedback, I have included all these issues in these feedback opportunities, however very little has been addressed. Lecturers are generally good.

Generally good facilities with excellent staff. Most of the problems that face the uni are a result of what many of us consider misprioritised use of finances, choosing to expand physical buildings etc while they have started to cut some of the the real strengths of this institution. The teaching, wide range of subjects, practical projects and arts opportunities are what brought me here - but with desirable modules slowly being cut across the humanities much of the diversity of course structure that makes education at Kent unique and very valuable are unfortunately begining to struggle. That being said, what is left is still of a very high standard, and many of the students here produce quality work and ideas. I just fear that with a changing target demographic, and what feels like misprioritised finances after multiple league table drops, that this fantastic university might not recover it's Russel Group beating status, or worse, stop drawing in the talented staff who make it great.

Since I have been at this university it has fallen from 21st to 50th. During my time 3 lecturers have left my course mid way through teaching a module. The parking on campus is an absolute joke, charging students hourly who could spend upwards of 12 hours on campus on any given day. The union is absolute dog shit, poor events, poor attraction to performers, making the news for absolute blunders.... embarrassment. The staff to student ratio is poor, very poor. Student interests are entirely secondary to the absolute obsession the higher ups have of turning the campus into an eternal building site. The entire time i have been here a new building is being constructed and tbh the new woodys is worse than the old, has no character. I have enjoyed my time at kent through sports societies and some elements of my course... the uni Itself has decreased massively in quality over the years.

The University of Kent couldn't care less about the welfare of its students. There are so many of us here who have mental health issues that are overlooked and brushed over, leading to unfortunate cases of suicide (which our newspaper then plasters over the front page). They also hide the regularity of sexual assault in students, with the victim being told that they are the problem in far too many cases; some cases are covered up by influential individuals higher up in the university hierarchy. If you want to attend a university that actually cares about your wellbeing, and whether you're actually alive, don't attend the University of Kent.

The union don’t care about your average students. They focus on LGBTQ+ rights (1% of the pop) to distract from their inability to connect with students and represent them accurately. The shop on campus is more expensive than any supermarket. There aren’t even microwaves available on campus. The sports facilities aren’t big enough or managed well enough. We regularly get games rescheduled from over booking. The union is an organisation in shambles.

I have loved my time at Kent! The campus is beautiful both in summer and winter and the views of the city and cathedral are remarkable. The staff are all amazingly helpful and welcoming and make the transition into uni life very easy and stress free. All the amenities on campus are great from the massive variety of bars, to the gym and even the shop. The societies are great and are a great way for students to meet new people and learn a new hobby!

Since joining the University of Kent I’ve seen success both academically and socially. The only complaint I have is the old student union meant that it was nearly impossible to set up a new society. I’m hoping that the newly elected Union staff will be much better.

After 4 years at Kent I can't shake the overwhelming feeling that profits and reputation are the unions main concerns over student welfare. There are multiple ways the university tries to get extra money from students; it costs to register for graduation and parking tickets are issued every day while the su shop has slowly been fazing out it's more value options. Students see the union as a new, more gullible parent who seems to have infinite time an money to cover up another headline when it can take you over a month to see a councillor.

Could be a good uni but the amount of contact hours you receive massively decreases the value of the uni. You’re paying for an expensive library card and teaching staff don’t care for you once you’ve completed their module

They provide a great environment to learn in and although prices in union shop are outrageous the overall university is good. The reason for falling is due to the way they treat students changing and the fact that especially with costumes they have been highly too politically correct.

Campus is okay, ugly 1960s buildings but is very green and pretty. Only nice in the springs and summer really. But the field overlooking Canterbury is nice all year round. Wifi is not great, but it is eduroam, so you automatically connect every time you are in range of another place that usues eduroam. I'm on my year abroad, and instead of figuring out how to use their internet, I use my Kent eduroam. Union is okay, have messed up a few times, but has good intensions, plus they got a new hub for parkwood which was really needed.

Lots of restaurants/bars with decent food, a club, decent sports facilities, good (e)library facilities (busy during exam season but its expanding) Wide range of fun, engaging societies (Model UN is great!) Many activities always going on around campus! Fantastic career guidance from schools typically (psych especially), jobshop for temporary work, employability points scheme where you can redeem points for internships, Volunteering certificate scheme too Student Union has made helpful changes to our uni over the years, but some changes take a long time to do understandably

I really enjoyed my time at Kent but the School of Computing should be more prompt with results. I did a MSc in Computer Science and for some modules I had to wait 2 months to get my results. Same with final results, other departments on campus were significantly better with publishing their results. it's kinda embarrassing for the School of Computing to take that long, you'd think they have better software available and plenty of resources. Same with the computer labs, most departments on campus have better PCs. The laptops you can borrow in the library barely work. The university does not offer any initial print credit where most universities do. The cinema on campus is really good and cheap. The uni has a really good deal with Stagecoach and you can buy a yearly pass for around £180 which is a good deal. it's better to live off campus.

My course lecturers and academics have further developed and inspired my interest and have given me the knowledge and support necessary to be successful in the outside world. The accommodation is wonderful and large even if you have to pay a bit more for it! Overall, Kent is an excellent place to study and I would highly recommend everyone to visit it

My time at UKC has been brilliant. They have provided me with everything I needed and have always been hasty in helping with any issues I have. The facilities provide enough space for everyone to have a workplace even in the busiest of times. My only complaint is that setting up a society can be a difficult task and the system currently in place is hard to use and requests take weeks to get processed.

The students union at medway is absolutley terrible. The campus is really small and there aren't many societies to join. I tried to start a Brazilian Jiujitsu society last year and unfortunately I didn't receive any guidance from the Univerirsty as to how about going about it and it fell apart shortly after. I'm not sure about the Cantebury campus but Medway is atrocious.

Very busy campus with a lot of events, there's always something happening that you can be involved in, staff and fellow students are all very helpful and there is a fantastic community feel. There are a few issues regarding seating in the library - it can be hard to find a seat in peak times - but if you have your own laptop and books there are plenty of study hubs dotted around campus to provide extra space to study, most are also equipped with desktop computers for students to do work. There are also many places to eat on campus all with different options of food to accommodate every appetite, along with street food vendors in the central plaza - there is also a 30 minute walk into Canterbury city centre which is a very nice walk down, not so much back to campus as it's all up hill but there are very convenient bus links with buses around every 10 minutes to and from campus on weekdays.

Great uni so far, although the library may get busy, there are many study hubs tucked away that always have a lot of space. Nightlife is abundant and always something going on at the bars or venue . The town is accessable easily by bus or walking if not essentials is on your doorstep. The uni itself is very well maintained , and walking through parkwood is great to clear your mind and get lost in some trees. The WiFi when it works is reliable, but many areas the WiFi simply cuts off (such as the back of parkwood) and this is frustrating.

Money grabbing university. Will do anything possible to get even more money from you ranging from fines related to your halls, making noise, etc through to fining you for parking on campus. Lectures are diabolical, consists of a powerpoint read word for word, help from lecturers is never given, seminar supervisors are students who have no knowledge in what they're teaching you and more often than not, know not much at all. Would not wish my worst enemy go to Kent.

They say we're the same as Canterbury campus and we're linked, but we're not. It's very much canterbury campus is Kent university and then there's Medway campus. The forgotten campus. Recently the presidential campaign for kent union came to Medway and none of them has ever really spent time on the campus. One even said that Medway campus is their own thing so he wouldn't even bother coming down anyway. It's not what I thought a university campus would be like. It's just terrible.

I think Kent has a great campus, which isn't too large or too small, the furthest I can imagine anyone walking is 40 minutes (from the furthest part of Parkwood to Darwin probably). Venue holds a special place in my heart too, I love that place. The amount of clubs and societies are great, though I wish Kent sport promoted all sports clubs equally (no photographer bothered to come to our varsity gala which we won).

My experience so far at Kent has been marred by my location at the Medway Campus: The town in which this campus resides is deprived of funding and has huge unemployment, making the expected "cultural experience" of going to university a slap in the face. The main campus feels like a commuter campus as it is the smaller secondary shared campus for Greenwich, Kent and CCCU meaning there is practically nothing besides religious societies and men only sports teams. The Drill Hall Library saves this campus from being a disaster, as it is well stocked and computers are always available. I am starting work at the newly built Student Hub opening in September this year, which I hope is a vast improvement to the feel of the campus. The Dockyard Campus where Kent Business School is located, is beautiful and regularly used for filming, lectures take place in a beautiful old church and there is free access to the Maritime museum featuring a submarine and two huge ships.

The student support service is amazing here, and the ampus is really well equipped with it's own shop (granted it's slightly more expensive). I live in the 'worst' accommodation in Darwin College, but honestly I love it and all my housemates so I wouldn't live anywhere else, (plus its almost the cheapest one on campus)

UKC is a really good quality uni, they have great scholarships available (look into it for real, sometimes you have to apply for the scholarship whilst you're applying through UCAS). But the Student Union is a little bureaucratic and there is always building work going on and everything's pretty freaking expensive, you better give up on doing laundry unless you want to spend a tenner every time to get your stuff dry. The library is cool, too much building work though. On campus food is a bit gross unless you go to the Gulbenkian but that's pretty expensive (unless you get a jacket potato) The Venue is gross but loads of people love it so it's probably decent if you like that kind of thing, although actually they all claim to hate it so I'm not really sure what's going on there. There's an AMAZING view from certain places in the uni. Kinda obstructed by building work though which is really annoying. I came to this place for the view and the ducks and the scholarship...

Definitely made the right choice of university! The nightlife is not the best as there are only a handful of clubs in town but nevertheless that means there's never an empty club seen. The eduroam wifi is poor but I have discovered that it is not the university's fault and many other universities use eduroam aswell! The societies are fantastic, there are many to choose from and something for everyone! It is even easy to set up your own society which I have done in the space of 2 weeks. There is never a boring day at Kent!

Well run university, student village is brilliant. Teaching quality is excellent and courses are well laid out with high accessibility to resources online and physically. Student union can be slightly expensive but all events have a good vibe and are very professional.

A generally fantastic university which endorses work/life balance and the need for its students to undergo a smooth transition from academic to professional life. Offering a wide range of degrees and expert knowledge from its staff, this will surely satisfy any prospective students wishing to embark on high class HE, just a short while from London without the extortionate cost of living within the capital. A great place to study also for international students, whose large amount every year helps both new internationals socialise with their compatriots to settle in, and existing students develop firm relationships with citizens from different geographical, cultural and linguistic backgrounds. I am always proud of being a member of this institution and will continue to be upon my graduation.

Not been to the on-campus club but I have heard rumours that it isn't so great, and the drinks are very expensive. There are a great range of societies, all of which have friendly committees who are welcoming and are eager to get to know those who join. The Wifi is fantastic but it can take a little while to connect at first, but otherwise, it's perfect.

The campus isn't too big nor too small, plenty of bars and places to eat. Useful having an on-campus store and several careers offices. Lecturers and seminar leaders are always quick to respond by email and lecturers give easy access to resource information. No regrets about choosing this university.

Do not accommodate the priority of study spaces on campus with areas where students are free to revise or eat. Social spaces indoors. Study spaces, openly designed, not suffocating.

UKC is a really good uni, the lecturers are really helpful and enthusiastic about their subjects. The support for dyslexia is incredible! The sports facilities are good for almost all sports. The city is beautiful, however the night life is a bit drab, unless you love pubs.
