staff are always ready to help out especially through tough times like covid & marking and assessment strikes and boycotts
A very nice location for a university however it can be a trek to go the the nearest supermarkets which are in town
The teaching at Kent is excellent. Combining this with the wide range of societies and things to do on campus, my experience here has been great.
Could have better organisation structure
Great place with very nice staff. Very nice location
It’s a great and diverse university with a big campus and plenty of societies.
good area of study, a range of different societies and a nice area to relax.
It has been an amazing first year in the uni of kent there are so many clubs and societies to join fpr everyone. However, if you are not a type of person enjoys clubbing, you may be lonely. The teachers and seminar leaders are very helpful and push you to learn. Social areas are amazing and the gym is free for first years!!
Amazing experiences and Kent Dance is an outstanding society where everything is involved
My experience at the University has been enjoyable. I'm quite reserved but enjoy walks through the grounds and the library as it is full of study corners and booths. There are several societies for people and the nights out are quite fun.
Good university. With good lecturers.
DO NOT GO to this uni. I am a 3rd year student and they have decided on a marking boycott- essentially they are refusing to mark our work until they get their concerns met but higher members of staff. So our degrees might be useless- they don’t care about their students!
The uni is good and placed in a good area
Great university and it has much needed support. All a good variety of societies
Good in overall, but library is always full...
an excellent university with passionate teachers. A very good eramus program and a multitude of associative events and clubs allow you to socialize
Pretty average. Diverse range of students
Very nice and big campus. Templeman Library has lot of space and also a café. The university is well maintained
University is located in a less crowded city( easy to commute to and from ). Module convenors are quite accommodating and helpful. Amazing university.
Really nice uni and great facilities
A very critical university who take pride in developing the students.
Very diverse university and big campus. presser is not a native speaker that makes it hard to understand.
Overall amazing experience, quite helpful just shame about no parking as if you don’t have a permit you have to pay
Everything is great! I am grateful that i choose Kent Uni
I've enjoyed my education at Kent Uni. The professors are super friendly and the quality of the teaching is good. My modules (literary history) were interesting and engaging. The campus facilities are alright. Some buildings feel more welcoming than others, but overall it's clean and in good shape. Internet usually works but it's not the fastest.
My time has overall been good, and your experience will depend on your expectations- I would of hoped for more of a community feel since its a campus uni based in a small city, but that hasnt been the case.
Better than I expected actually happy I’m here
The University of Kent experience is unique and diverse
A friendly and helpful environment
I am currently a second year the campus itself is lovely , modern and old mixed and very green with a lovely view of the cathedral.
Cobby cobby cobby cobby cobby cobby
staff outside lecturers are awful at responding to you. they just blank you- really damaging , very dishonest.
The campus is big and has a BEAUTIFUL view of the city. The teachers are accommodating and nice
Studying at Kent and experiencing student life on campus were some of the best moments of my life thus far
Really nice campus, good facilities and accommodation, some issues with contact and keeping in touch with the uni/societies.
A very diversitied culture and modern learning environment.
didn't spend much time in school campus
University of Kent is the Best in Canterbury
Well organised and a nice place to be.
Everything works well with how everything is formulated
WiFi was always terrible and not worth the money lived of pot noodles for a year as my flat mates were messy and never spoke
Not a great location, missing out on opportunities and fun stuff
Nice location but it can take long to get to city centre.
Beautiful campus, lots of clubs and the career service has been very encouraging.
I am really enjoying my time at Kent uni.The facilities are good, the college system is a lovely way of getting people to meet new people, and the campus is beautiful and feels vey safe. I love my course, and the lecturers have been really supportive through the online learning Covid experience and always available for drop in virtual sessions. I’ve felt very well supported throughout my time here so far. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be.
Terrible mental health support would not recommend to anyone who suffers from anxiety.
A solid, valuable experience. However the careers service could do more to liaise students with employment opportunities.
Join a club or a society because you will regret it if you didn’t join any in your first year, trust me on that.
Fast wifi and plenty of amenities at SU
Very friendly, open and safe campus. Never had a problem with anything but if I did there are many services provided to ensure you have a safe and happy experience. Everyone is very friendly and approachable.
There is no sense of undergraduate community at the university, and little postgraduate community.
worst experience possible at a university. Nothing interesting ever happens in the cold and dull middle of nowhere. Lack of teachers caring about the subject they are teaching and students dont bother showing up to the lectures and classes. Dont bother going to this university as it is a rip off for what you are initially paying. Dont go here
Kent has been a disappointment so far. If I hadn’t made such good friends I would have left ASAP. Let’s start with the actual education: my contact hours are beyond minimal, seminars are a thing of the past, lecturers have no passion, the list goes on. All the lecture halls are good quality. Student life: EXPENSIVE. co-op will break your bank! Eating on campus is expensive; pizzas, burgers, curly fries served at ALL places to eat with no alternatives, great on the first week but you will miss having a side salad... Nights out: The venue is TINY, anymore than 200 people and you can’t breathe. Highly recommend club chem in town (NOT the Cuban - don’t do it!), get a bus pass! Accommodation: awful. If you don’t get Turing, Tyler or the brand new parkwood houses, good luck. Even then you’re miles from campus. Jobs: Non-existent. No help from the uni, they don’t hire and neither does town. Sport/societies: gym is decent, no pool tho, ENDLESS societies!!!
You'll get internet speeds of 45 mbps. Rooms get worse with the older time it was built. There is a lot of career advice. Picking the right room is essential and avoid eliot college by all means. There are thousands of fun clubs and societies.
Kent has good teachers and some good facilities. Everything else is just rubbish. Sometimes there is no hot water/heating/internet in student halls, specially during the winter. Most staff members dont care about students. Career/placement services does nothing to help students. kent only care about the students tuition. Takes in international students to get their money and then ditches them. Canterbury is a nice rural city but lacks heavily in technology. Kent=confusing
The library has been thoroughly modernised as an open plan place to access computers more than find books. I think it has gone too far in the other direction, to look pretty. Not too impressed by the essays I find in the printer tray. If you have high intellectual pretensions, try Oxbridge or Edinburgh maybe.
The Campus is quite large with a lot of open space to walk around, there is a reasonably large collection of societies that you can join and the Wifi works. That is the end of the positive section of the review. The Student Union is abysmal. During the strikes, the union (that could not organise a piss-up in a brewery) failed to organise a student response to the strikes and didn't even attempt to help students claim compensation. That caused some first-year students to have to organise it themselves while everyone was preparing for their exams which we were very unprepared to take. The Careers Service is not tailored to the students. If you are lucky and you manage to apply to get a mentor who has left the uni hold on to them as that is the only advice you will receive as the uni does not care about you at all. Lastly, I hope you are very rich as nothing at the university is free or fairly priced. The uni gym is not only overpriced but also lacks some pretty vital gym facilities.
Like any uni, the University of Kent has its failures, but it more than makes up for them in other areas. In terms of teaching/lecturing the university can be terrible, some lecturers won't even turn up without prior warning and when they do are clearly uninterested in teaching the content, BUT there are some that are gems and will go above and beyond to help you with any module not just the one they teach you. As well as this the campus is beautiful, as most of the accommodation; the library is phenomenal and the views of the city from around the campus are great. The students union is terrible and unsupportive, but they run a decent club on campus so you can't complain that much.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a student at the university of Kent. My course was really interesting, I was given chances to be involved in all sorts of extra curricular activities and the teaching was on the whole really good quality. The accommodation was some of the best I’d seen both from visiting other university open days and visiting friends at other unis. I was in Keynes college flats and I loved it. My course support was really good and I found Canterbury a really fantastic place to live where I had the chance to go out a lot (which I made use of especially in first year) and also be living in a nice community with lots of shops and nice places to eat in the day. The uni itself was fantastic for me and the perfect place to be. I also partook in part time work through the university as part of the student subject ambassador scheme which was paid really well and gave me really good work experience whilst also being flexible around my studies. Overall, I really enjoyed my time.
I was very skeptical about going here however it was the best decision I made, being a campus uni everything is only a short walk away. It has amazing facilities and there’s something to do for everyone, I feel proud to go to the university of kent.
It's a great university loads of things to do
Great uni all round, except for terrible support on placement year
I had an incredible time at the University of Kent. The campus is broad and inclusive with everything you could need. The facilities are great. The course was fantastic.
I studied classics and honesty had the best time from living on campus to being part of societies and what my course offered
Can't complain was a good experience, would fully go again.
Plenty of societies, good (but expensive) accommodation and food options. Decent courses.
All round pretty solid place. Also want it to look good.
Rutherford and Eliot were impossible to navigate but that's the only downside.
Pretty good Uni tbf, some solid services too
The campus and the university’s facilities are excellent. On the other hand, the clubs and societies should be more organized and mote interesting. The Students union seems to have put some work but there are things that can be improved. Lastly, in the field of Biosciences, some of the professors are excellent encouraging the students and stimulating their interest. Others’ performance is below the average.
I spent some of my best and worst moments here. I love the campus and the union and university gave me many many opportunities and have managed to get an internship through the employability scheme. Only issue is that the courses and the lecturers are very inaccessible (for disabled people) and so I and other disabled people have been penalised for being disabled as opposed to having reasonable adjustments and in turn have a level playing field with the other students.
The university campus is lovely and just the right size. Huge variety of accommodation for first years. Great student union, etc. Would recommend.
Couldn’t be happier at this uni
A great experience with so many opportunities, I wish they were better advertised though.
Amazing uni, wouldn't have gone elsewhere
The campus is pretty impressive as it's on a hill and gives a breathtaking view of Canterbury and the Westgate towers. It is also very green, making it a good environment to do work in or just chill. The lecturers are fairly helpful and pretty good with dealing with any queries you have. There is a campus shop that has most things, only criticism is that it's quite expensive and isn't open for enough hours
University that provides good teachers, brand new facilities and a lot of activities
Superb teaching in an extremely safe environment. Staff are friendly and extremely helpful. This campus has everything one needs and more. The library facilities are fab and there are loads of places to study on campus. The student accommodation is very modern and offers both catered and self catered rooms. Societies have a wide range of clubs to join from sports societies to science clubs, there's so much choice.
A great campus, good atmosphere and support whenever needed.
graduated from architecture, very tough course, very good staff helpfull and skilled in a brioad range of aspects of the profession, good campus life, a little boring at times. but pretty good weather
Brilliant university, great experience!
Just finished first year and I’m loving it so far. Really fun and brilliant location-Canterbury is great for a night out (and is always alive with things to do during the day). The society I joined (religious society) didn’t actually do anything (the one event they put on I missed because of a lecture) so I marked down for that.
Communication at the uni couldn't be much worse, and their care for student satisfaction again couldn't be much poorer
Just finished first year and it's been great!
Expensive student shop, bad support, only 4 clubs.
Loved every minute being at university of Kent. The campus/resources as amazing
No proper funding allocated for facilities , clubs etc. Lectures often bland and dated.
It’s a great campus uni with the city centre close by. In terms of sport facilities, it doesn’t have a swimming pool on campus (costing the swim team a lot of money) and has removed the outside netball courts to be converted to tennis courts. Basically removing the facilities for a bigger sport society, making them more money, for a smaller sport society. Doesn’t make sense to me.
Good accommodation, good facilities, lovely feeling campus and easy access into town. T24 drama society was a saving grace, filled with opportunities, loads of loving and supportive people and made first year extremely enjoyable!
Good accommodation, good facilities, lovely feeling campus and easy access into town.
Architecture 1st year awfully run with little guidance, unorganised tutors and poor marking with no feedback. Repeatedly felt under-supported and a large portion of my modules felt pointless or rushed. Very few of the tutors actually "teach" or don't teach well. The only saving grace this year has been the T24 drama society who are inclusive, supportive and got me through the year! Great society propping up a rubbish course!
Everything is located on campus and there is a great veriety if everything. Multiple bars, shops and a club on campus. The library is big and well established.
awful attempt to reimburse either time or money forgone by strikes. "take the money and run" mentality.
Great uni what’s all the fuss about
While studying at Kent I just didn’t feel as though there was a community atmosphere. Having friends at other universities it seemed like there was so much more going on and they were really part of the university. I wish the departments did more to integrate the students and had more to offer in terms of trips and events. I also believe that they have too much of a relaxed approach. So many of my friends had never met their academic adviser and this was in third year. We should all have a strong relationship with them as each year commenced but this was not the case. Studying philosophy I believe that we should have been taught how to write philosophically. In first year it was very confusing. Instead of diving straight into topics such as Descartes meditations why not give an overview of what philosophy is the varying sub divisions. How to attempt philosophical reasoning and begin critical thinking. Give a brief overview of the history of philosophy.
Great campus and world class lecturers!
First year was amazing, met lots of new people. The campus is so nice and open.
Not enough support of guidance from the uni. Not equal teaching efforts from schools.
Nice campus in a beautiful location. Professors help whenever they can and are not hard to approach.
Food and furniture of standardized-low quality, a hypocrisy lying on the very foundation of this European university which is clearly not fully inclusive of foreign students as a whole. Landscapes were great, people and staff not so much. UNPROFFESSIONAL AND CONDESCENDING staff in many of the establishments such as Medical Center or Kent Union. Over-exaggeration of the services they offer; they do not include problems or roadblocks options that could arise. Very limited inclusion of differences between foreign students to which teachers are not aware of which have to do with cultural differences (due to the exponential number of cultures which come together in many and unexpected ways).
This university has one of the best student wellbeing departments also.
Absolutely love doing my Bachelor degree at Kent University!
I really like that I came to Canterbury. We have a beautiful campus and nothing in Canterbury is ever truly far away.
It's a great university! I love studying here!
Great university, perfect balance between academics (taught by excellent professors) and extracurriculars.
Lectures were so boring and no one was passionate about the course.
Picturesque campus, dedicated staff and amazing facilities
Safe environment on campus and excellent student union with the most enjoyable summerball!
Horrible organisation! Literally the worst! Modules are a mess, policies are horrible and anti-student/anti-mental health. Resits now erase your coursework marks! Horrendous pricing of accommodation
As a French, I believe the university itself is very nice. However, I can not review the teaching for now.
Amazing university, great lecturers (most) in School of Physical Sciences
I have loved my time at Kent! Met some great people and thrived academically. It doesn't deserve to have dropped so many places
My course (Biomedical science), tailors to my learning skills, lecturers very good at teaching and helping, facilities are really good; mental health services and student union services amazing, lots of extra curricular stuff to do within the safety of the campus. Library is very spacious and lots of computers, however always hard to find a space in the mid day and evening when studying. Buses are very convenient with times. Students are very lovely, nice homely environment and nice scenery wherever you walk around the campus. The shop essentials is far too expensive - they should improve on the prices. Overall a very good university for my course anyways, 4/5 would recommend.
I am really enjoying it at Kent. There are lots of things to do and I have found some of my best friends there. It also has a good medical center that's always there to help. Some of the facilities aren't completely up to scratch and the on campus shop is insanely expensive while being catered to students. The teaching is usually really good for me and the classrooms are always spacious. In the end it just depends on what you need from a university as an individual on whether this uni is the choice for you or not
The University has a huge variety of clubs and societies, they are easy to find and join. It is also incredibly easy to make your own society. I am a student to psychology and the University have alot of technology that students can use when researching. There is a virtual reality machine. EEG machine and more. The University is a good place to study with lots of study hubs around campus. If they could improve on something it would be student care, but i believe that differed between departments
Campus is lively and always has something going on. Accommodation is great with great facilities. The transport service is generally very good and easy to get into the center of Canterbury
The campus is great and lively and the staff as supportive. Accommodation is great compared to other unis with easy access to lots of facilities
Great staff, beautiful facilities with a new library
It is a great university, there is a lot of opportunities for students to develop their skills and enhance their experiences. The staff is extremely helpful at all times and facilities across campus are great. The shuttle bus to go from Medway to Canterbury and viceversa is very good as it enables students to take part in opportunities happening across campus. Numerous volunteering opportunities which is great.
Food is lower-medium quality in campus, people won’t attend you 100% and the people is so picky. Wouldn’t recommend
I had to drop out during 2nd year due to personal reasons but was offered no support whatsoever. My attendance was less than 20% and I was never so much as questioned about why it was so low. When I told my “academic advisor” I was considering leaving he more or less said oh ok and nothing else. I felt very abandoned and unsupported especially as they new I had tried to kill myself twice whilst enrolled
the community is great, accommodations are pretty nice.
School of Physical Sciences is a strong, sensible department. Shame the students union is soo intrusive. The countless controversies Kent Union have knowingly caused have been just embarrassing.
I didn't plan on coming here for University to study biomedical siences however I entered through clearing and it ended up being a great experience and was provided a good amount of academic support and level of teaching
I previously attended the a university of Manchester, and dropped out due to not enjoying the experience. I have found the University of Kent to be a wonderful experience so far, and I’m excited for the years to come.
The university promotes themselves for their care towards students, but in my three years of being there, i’ve been on my own fully and no constructive criticism. My grades depend on the lectures options if they like the work, not mark on the quality. We have not been taught a single thing. Hate that i’ve wasted so much money when google has actually given me my degree.
Variegated diversity of course choices, open and spacious campus with convenient study hubs and facilities, and a good student support system and education system
S*** night life, s*** Union that is too far left, Union has basically banned all initiations anything fun, s*** gym, but good societies and decent WiFi
Kent union have no idea what they're doing. Prices anywhere on campus are way too expensive for students. There's a reason we dropped so many places.
Based in west Kent college - not good resources and constant battlers with student finance - resources are bad and you get years get more priority. Get no parking either
Amazing university I would recommend it to anyone
Great university, best university to have ever existed. Can get visited by friendly seagulls whenever you like to. Best library.
Campus - decent Clubs and Societies - shooting society is full of racists who praise the EDL Students Union - beer overpriced Careers Service - good from what I hear Internet / Wifi - fair
Good uni, lots of fun and happy people
Great university. Would recommend
Kent union is expensive and needs more help providing more affordable activities especially drinks for students
Outstanding teaching and uni services, good to see money is always being invested in facilities
I found the level of teaching I received was outstanding, the services the uni offers are great, the facilities are great and are always being improved.
It’s a great university, but as with anywhere your time there is what you make it! Don’t put the effort in to find things out and look for things etc, don’t reap the rewards of what the uni has to offer. Be proactive!
Had a productive time at Kent and enjoyed both the Canterbury and Medway campuses. Lecturers in journalism are knowledgeable and accessible but their feedback can be harsh. Overall good university
My experience at Kent uni has been average at best. The library has spent the whole time being rebuilt so was always a mess. The general campus was so not so bad, but it was the Erasmus team which was appalling and ruined my university experience. In fact all the higher people at uni were shambolic in nowothey dealt with situations. Very poor
The campus has a lot to offer while literature courses are kept small! Perfect environment to grow and study.
Medway campus sucks due to location, but campus internal is nice.
The societies and clubs have been shocking. However th campus facilities have been good
I enjoyed my experience at the University as a student, minus the stress from the course!
Amazing experience, social and motivated crowd. Campus is the perfect place to spend days.
The university staff, does not give a flying f about the questions and the problems of their students. Instead they just care about their pay and the ranking their university is placed.
Extremely unfair education staff. The university does not care about their student, they just care about their ranking. Even when students goes for help to their lecturers, some of the lecturers are so arrogant and doesn’t give a flying f about the problems or questions of the students.
amazing University life, nice town, nice campus, teaching staff are also great
Everything about the university satisfies entirely.
The BEST three years that i could have possibly had. Wouldn’t change a thing (apart from an ex haha) - but would recommend to anyone. 12/10 for UKC for me!
It’s a good uni, but more needs to be done to cater for the students. Like lecturers need to reply their emails more often and we should have compulsory academic advisor meeting every two weeks at least.
A contemporary university that has a lot of focus and freedom
I am so thankful for coming here and I know that my experience has been nothing else but amazing
beautiful campus and really modern library
I did a year abroad here and I liked it. Great student life and nightlife, a lot of fun. But it is a very posh uni and I didn't like all the profs. The burocracy tried to Rip you off at every chance. Also its hella expensive and even coming from a privledged family in Canada I felt a little out of place with all the super rich people here which is shocking. Many people are nice but there are some assholes and a ridiculous number of Tories who don't seem aware of how privledged they are and how hard it is for normal people to get by here. Thankfully its only half of the people here and you can find people like you who aren't modern day aristocrats. There's enough diversity that you can find people like you
Lovely campus, great atmosphere. High standard of teaching within the law school.
Kent university is a good university with many social and educational opportunities, I am a media student first year and I have already been given the opportunity to take part in two documentary interviews for Chanel 4
I think Kent is a good social uni
Wifi is a bit poor in some areas, wold need more areas to get water especially for students not living on campus, and cheaper food
Thé university and it’s facilities are great but there should be more areas to get water and cheaper food because a banana at £1.20 is a bit expensive
The gym is ridiculously overpriced for the facilities that it has. The students union only care about the appearance of the university to other people and not about the actual students, ignoring rape allegations in the rugby society whilst completely banning another society for a few people’s comments. The lecturers take ages to reply to emails or to give back essay results, even if there is a set date. About 70% of the plugs in the library do not work and about 80% of the laptops don’t work, which makes it hard for students who want to study for exams. There is always no space in the library, so more seats need to be placed in there. The internet is ok, not the best ever, quite slow at times.
Staff are unhelpful and lazy. Some of the buildings are old and were built by a prison architect. Course leaders are lazy and show a lack of interest in a student’s degree. Students Union is the worst in the world, choosing to punish an entire society for the actions of a couple of students, and completely ignoring rape allegations in the Rugby society. Worst Uni in the country!!
I personally love the university! The teaching that I have received so far has been really good
I really enjoy studying at the University of Kent because it has a very beautiful campus, the best facilities regarding both studying and entertainment and generally the atmosphere is very calm, friendly and joyful.
Love the campus and everyone is so friendly!
Absolutely amazing! I wouldn’t change anything about my experience I would do it all over again if I could! The university has helped me in so many levels!
My time at UKC has been nothing but amazing. Course run smooth, every society I joined enjoyable. Nothing more than exactly what I hoped for.
University of Kent is a fantastic uni, I've had such a good experience I am staying on for a masters.
The campus is lovely, quirky, relaxingly rural/wildlifey and creative. Nice library, buildings and environment with town close by. I study Anthropology Bsc. The Biological side is really good, though I have nothing to compare it to. The social anthropology side seems to leave something to be desired occasionally, though I am not sure if that is just the discipline as a whole or some of my lecturers. Overall a pleasant university. If you like somewhere countrysidey (yet still vibrant) but close to London then this is the place for you.
Good uni, but the support is rubbish and they don’t actually care about their students, just the grades
The University has catered to all my needs, and has so much to offer for everyone.
The campus is really lovely and the union and societies are good
It's nice here. I enjoy the lectures and the modules are well put together.
The library is wonderful and the lecturers are really helpful.
Amazing uni, the campus is very good and the good too.
I studied here best 3 years of my life!
This university has enormously increased my confidence with both public speaking and meeting new people! I have made life time long friends and couldn’t thank the university lecturers enough for getting me through my university journey and primarily the support I was given during my dissertation!
Welcoming, accessible campus with great views and a very natural, relaxing atmosphere.
My lecturers and seminar leaders are super committed to helping us learn the think outside the box. We constantly have new, cutting edge modules taught by doctors and professors who are paving the way for new medical and scientific history. The library is well stocked and the online resources are boundless. We are also taught great research skills and to look beyond the university's library. It was a difficult step going from the hand-holding of a-level, but the tutors give you the confidence to make your owb path.

Best best best university for me to attention
Medway campus- Food on campus is overpriced and you do not recieve the value for your money. Activities on campus tend to be boring or very little people show up. Internet is ok on the Pcs but it is very slow when you connect other devices such as laptops etc. The socities are very poor, theyre not engaging. Buildings can be very stuffy
There is little to not support for mental health and the societies are not accessible if you don’t have the money to join. Very hard to make friends for this reason. There is no help in terms of career advice.
Great university especially for international students. Not only do you learn academically but also from the diverse multicultural student life
The campus doesn’t not provide good quality of facilities. The library cafe has limited options! The food on campus is average. Not many options. During exam season, there is no provision for food other than the shop on campus.
Great students, helpful staff, choppy internet, decent facilities.
Amazing, modern campus with anything you could possibly need.
Lots of events and clubs. Plenty of quirky eateries. On campus shop may be overpriced but they sell fresh food made in store and everything is local.

Couldn’t really ask for a more welcoming and friendly university. The facilities and campus are amazing and make it a lovely place to learn
The library is excellent, there are many options to go to for food, just wish they had more vegan options!
I think Kent Uni is one of the best uni I have ever seen.
Love it here, campus has everything I need and the city is beautiful
Too many gimps from London that come to this uni and think they're hard.
If the student union could do more for the students and the environment that would be fab.
My experience at Kent has been extraordinary and life changing. This university is created for students. It is well organized and the support it offers is everything a student can wish for. The lecturers and seminar leaders are all prepared and know absolutely what they’re doing; you feel like you’re in good hands. The programme is exciting.
Absolutely brilliant and wholesome experience. There are people from all over who come here. I do think that certain people here don't deserve to be here because they are uninspired and moronic. I personally studied Comparative literature and theatre studies and had an incredible education for my first year. It angers me that the school keeps plummeting.
Excellent uni, spent four years here, graduating this year, couldn't recommend a better place.
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.
Campus is stunning, always a nice view and places to go for quiet if you need. Town is so close if you're ever bored and many things to do nearby.
Best uni ever. Had the best time of my life
Not very good at helping find a career after. But overall good experience and campus is beautiful.
Very good uni with great facilities and a friendly environment
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.
The university is picturesque and well set out. Most reviews bringing it down are from the Medway campus however the Canterbury campus is great looks and quality of teaching.
It is a really good place to live and study. Cant be more happy of my choice.
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
The best experience i’ve ever haf
The university puts a lot of emphasis on student satisfaction and lecturers are more than competent
Honestly couldn’t have picked anywhere better if I tried!
Student union does absolutely nothing for the students. Other than that really good uni with a nice campus.
Great uni, interesting lectures, fantastic staff. Employability service is great, so many opportunities for jobs/placements/work experience. Administration isn't great (re strikes last year) but uni as a whole is still wonderful
A great university with lots of facilities, including a new libary and a huge gym
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.
The university of Kent is an amazing University, I applied 5 times because I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else !!!
Module choices sucks. No real help from lecturers. Marking is so f***** depending on who grades you you can go from 75 to 29
nice people and help is always given to those who ask
The lectures don’t test your knowledgeable they test how much you can remember!
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.
Beautiful campus with great facilities. The library is well designed and maintained, despite how busy it eats during exam season. The societies available are great and make the campus seem very sociable and inclusive.
Medway campus has lack of facilities. Greenwich Sport hall is twice as expensive as Greenwich students. Business School is far away from campus, which takes 30-40 mins walk from Accommodation.
I love university so much, I am so happy I came here. I’ve had the best three years of my life and I don’t want it to end - hence why I’m doing a masters!
Set in the beautiful city of Canterbury, the University has a very varied campus with the new buildings being drastically better than the old ones. Teaching staff all from all over the world and are friendly.
Only finishing Yr 1 but so far beautiful campus lots of activities and so many useful facilities for students!
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.
Great university, great staff, very happy
It’s a nice uni, but the student union could be a lot better and the careers service
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.
Apart from price it’s a good uni. Massive library and other rooms available to study
I find that the University is very good with many facilities and a beautiful campus
Lovely campus! Had a great time at uni
It’s good but a bit far from central london
I am graduating this year. Did both my foundation and undergrad here. Love the support from teachers, KLS Support and KLS Wellbeing
It deserves to be higher than #51.
Best first year. Lecturers brilliant. Societies incredible. Nice accommodation.
cant fault the campus, its beautiful! but my course is ridiculously dull with poor teaching, there is VERY little to do which is pretty boring, the union is rubbish and everything is SO expensive that is run by the union. i dont feel part of the university at all, its just a place i go to
Got some really good professors passionate about what they teach but overall get the sense the university and the student union just don’t care about you.
best uni experience. People and staff are so friendly
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.
Good lectures and lecturers actually help, if they know you want it. Good resources at the library, and loads of space to do work there. Very large campus too. I have had a good experience so far and have definitely enjoyed my time here
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.
Student union can be a bit rubbish but they’re trying their best, rest is excellent
Great university, amazing campus
Wonderful staff and teachers, great campus and library.
good facilities, organised library and IT services, some good academics, the level of teaching in some cases is very high but in other cases is very low. Generally the university is well organised in terms of facilities apart from teaching
Awful academic staff, poor support, bad transportation, boring town , not recommended
I have been so well supported at Kent and pushed to do my best.
Great people, great facilities and amazing societies!
Pretty good. Clubs a bit limited.
Lovely campus with great facilities and a beautiful aesthetic. Let down by its student union which comprises of incompetent and pathetic ideological moral busy bodies.
Good university in a lovely location. I never want to leave.
I love the university of Kent. I think the teaching is outstanding and I feel very happy there.
Good for biomedical science with excellent research facilities, although would be better to see more independent support during coursework and exam season
I love it here! It’s the most perfect university
It does what it can- good experience
When I came to the uni it was top 20. Finna see if we can put it in a place it deserves
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.
Great experience, great education with lots of opportunities
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.
I have loved first year so far, the accommidation is new and clean, and the library is huge and amazing. Everything is within walking distance, amazing :)
It’s been a good few years but it’s a quiet uni for my liking
Club life is awful need more campus pubs or something
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
Kent has offered me great learning experiences and has a lovely campus
Great university, very diverse and accompanying to different cultures.
I've had a very good first year
Facilities are good except they close them off too early, so hard to find a place to study after 8 apart from the library which is packed most of the time
Great campus not too far from town, 24 hour library access great for studying and revision. Many different clubs to get involved in
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.
Got to be the worst uni in every way
Beautiful campus, great facilities, constantly renovating, great place to learn.
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.
The campus is just small. There are some usual clubs/societies. The internet connection is not stable on the entire campus.
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
The campus is beautiful as well as Canterbury itself. Facilities are superb and the there are hundreds of societies to choose from. A great choose of university.
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.
Amazing university! Love the campus!
The campus and lecturers are good !
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
Kent has a diverse range of societies to take part in with great facilities on a beautiful campus.
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.
It's a hidden gem. Professors are amazing, place is nice and vibrant. You can do anything!
I think the University of Kent is an excellent university! I have thoroughly enjoyed my 3 years at the establishment and would definitely recommend for other aspiring university students to apply.
Brilliant university with a fantastic careers advice service.
What a uni bruh. Just What. A. Uni. Yaknow.
Great place to go to uni, the Union is hated on campus, but the teaching and feel of the campus is great
Had nothing but good experiences in my first year and have loved every second of being part of a society. A big campus with a lot on it.
I have loved every moment of my first year experience
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.
Underrated uni, 8/8 would recommend
Eduroam is a pain but it's probably like that everywhere
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.
A nice large campus, 20 min bus ride to town. The gym is a bit small and can get very busy
The campus is boring and becomes very tedious and the centre is at least a twenty minute walk away.
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.
The internet is pretty shoddy. Regularly cuts in and out.
Events are not very well known about but it's pretty, green and social, basically really good
Great campus with nearly everything at your reach
The campus is very beautiful and the facilities are excellent. Only problem is that there's only on club on campus.
University of Kent is the perfect place for students. Our social scene is amazing, campus facilities are top notch and our careers service and jobshop are great.
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.
Love Kent just wish it wasn't so expensive
Great services and facilities are easy to use and get to
Amazing University, great course, brilliant sports clubs and societies.
Great uni. Holds socials all the time. Had its own club, Bars and restaurants. WiFi available campus wide. Nice location. On a hill. Can see the whole of Canterbury. They have societies and clubs for most things. Great social life
Awesome so glad I didn't go anywhere else
I just love this University. I'm so glad I came here :)
It's an awesome university to attend, highly recommend.
This was my second choice of uni but I am so glad that I came here. The atmosphere on campus is generally good spirited and everyone I've met is just so lovely.
Its everything you expect from a world class university! So diversed and environmental friendly.
Great campus in a lovely town. Plenty of pubs/clubs/bars Friendly campus and loads of societies.
Great atmosphere. incredibly green. Amazing university experience.
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.
My accommodation is expensive but so much nicer than I expected. Having bars, restaurants and a nightclub on campus is really convenient. There's always something going on and living on campus makes it easy to feel part of a community.
It's good, but surprisingly expensive in comparison to other universities up north.
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...
Very nice environment with greens everywhere. The atmosphere for studying is great as well. An excellent library with new facilities.
All very good, campus itself is lovely
Careers service fantastic and really helpful in 3rd year with job applications
The university has a large investment into modernisation at the moment, but that makes it feel like I'm studying on a construction site.
WiFi needs upgrading but the rest is great.
Very sporty, quite cliquey, quiet
Generally great Campus to live on. Keynes college rooms are surprisingly small. They look bigger in pictures on the hospitality website.
It's a nice place to be with good facilities.
Yeah so far so good. Not much gets complained about here apart from the 9am lectures and seminars. Haven't tried out all services, such as the career's service so I can't rate it too accurately but I haven't heard anything negative about it.
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.
Great university - lecturers & seminar leaders are brilliant and Canterbury is cute as anything. Bars all over campus. Accomodation varies a lot but is mostly good.
Excellent uni! Love everything about it, glad this is where I am at.
Wifi need to be improve, I find it a rip off that sport members have to pay gym membership as well
My insurance choice, but so much better than expected
Student union is not good at all. Only one club on campus and rumours of it closing this year.
very beautiful campus and enjoy the area
It is very good here, lots to get involved with, the campus itself is quite clean and has lots of green spaces
With the exception of the Job office, everything runs smoothly. I had my window replaced after it was vandalised, no hassle.
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!
Lovely uni and people, everyone always tries to help :)
Amazing university, better than some of the Russell groups
In my 3rd year and thoroughly enjoying my university experience. Kent has everything that I need.
I have been at Kent for 3 years and I have found it to be a great place to work and study.
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!
Wouldn't have chosen to go anywhere else
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.
I am having a great time here. The University is very nice and all the facilitates are top-notch.
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.
millions of £ worth of investment in this top 20 university
Kent has a great atmosphere, with lots of active societies and a good students union.
Really enjoy it here. Good facilities.
This review is of the Medway campus.
The campus is absolutely beautiful and there's always something going on. My lectures and seminars are always really interesting but sometimes the university has technology issues.
Beautiful town and vibrant community. Great on-campus facilities.
Lovely campus, great teaching, interesting lectures.
Extremely welcoming students and staff. Great career opportunities and support from staff and associated organisations. Wonderful student atmosphere.
Found it very welcoming, classic 60s architecture and fantastic gym.
Lots of societies and sports to get involved in. Theres's something for everyone.
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.
Great staff, very friendly and would do anything to try and help, if you ever need them, they are there.
Great uni with everything you could possible want on campus. Lots of clubs and societies too.
Lovely university, only downside is that societies are more aimed at people of an advanced level opposed to beginners.
Great University! Great new and modern accommodation. The lecturers and academics is world class. Plenty of societies and sports clubs to join.
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.
Great vibe and an awesome university. I love it!
Kent is great uni for those who want a mix between a city life and the country. It just a great uni! With great events!
You can study here, but social facilities are minimal at best, unless you have a friend in the union.
It's a lovely campus that's gonna get way better once building work is finished. Union can be a pain but getting involved will help. Essentials is over priced.
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!
Kent has everything you need and more and is a fantastic 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.
Good uni, shame about the abysmal teaching staff who are rubbish and some barely speak English
I never have good wifi in my house. Makes things very difficult.
Great university, loads of restaurants with different cultural food to try, friendly people, nice area and helpful people. Wifi always worked, works everywhere on campus (this is useful because it's hard to get coverage in Canterbury anyway)
Not great, but there's wifi everywhere (which is needed as there's no signal AT ALLL)
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.
Internet is inconsistent across campus, disconnects at random times and takes about 90 seconds to connect each and every time i open up my Macbook (I know of other Mac users who share the same problem)
Solid University, however, there still a very big room for improvement
i love it so much! everything is so accessible! facilities are great!
