It has everything you could possibly want. Amazing campus, wonderful facilities, WiFi almost everywhere (every building has it), always bombarded with opportunities for jobs and career help, lots of bonus lectures and events, an active student union that genuinely care and succeed, a society for almost everything you could want and plenty of bars, clubs and places to eat!

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

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.

Well, I live in Medway (Gillingham) and it is just awful, so many muggings, people setting off fire alarms to raid people's stuff, smoking in places you're not supposed to and the area is very 'chavvy' and honestly just not a safe place to live in yet alone study for students, who's first experience living by themselves could be the same as mine, just awful.

The university of Kent pretty much offers everything, it has a wide range of societies, the committees are all really good aswell. 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...

The campus is very open and full of nature. There are rabbits, plenty of trees, green areas and fresh air. It's a short walk away from Canterbury city centre yet the university itself is situated atop a hill. The staff are incredibly helpful and very friendly, and I'm yet to have a bad experience with anything related to the university itself.

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!

Wish we had better student bars as they aren't fab! And essentials is ridiculously over priced should just be a co-op! But the library and Study hubs are amazing!

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.

It has everything you could possibly want. Amazing campus, wonderful facilities, WiFi almost everywhere (every building has it), always bombarded with opportunities for jobs and career help, lots of bonus lectures and events, an active student union that genuinely care and succeed, a society for almost everything you could want and plenty of bars, clubs and places to eat!

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.
