The stunning Canterbury campus is built on 300 acres of parkland overlooking Canterbury Cathedral, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Less than an hour by train from London and only 25 minutes' walk from Canterbury city centre, the campus has residential, teaching and administrative buildings surrounded by green open spaces, fields and woods. There’s even a duck pond!
The campus is self-contained and includes high-quality student accommodation, teaching facilities, a library, sports centre, theatre, music performance centre, nightclub, cinema, restaurants, bars, shops, a bookshop, medical centre, day nursery, public access computer rooms, a chapel, launderettes and bus stops.
Close to London, Kent’s Medway campus reinvents a former naval base as a 21st-century study space, with exceptional facilities and support.
A lively atmosphere and a thriving close-knit campus community gives students plenty of opportunities to play sport, join a society, socialise or take up a new interest. There are music rehearsal rooms, digital filmmaking suites, an industry-standard newsroom, laboratories and post-production studios, all housed in a unique, historic setting.
The recently opened Student Hub is a fantastic place to relax with friends, grab a drink or snack and get on with work. The space is filled with social zones, study areas and a brand new bar.
The Medway campus has two sites, Pembroke and The Historic Dockyard Chatham. It's just a ten-minute walk from one to the other, so it's easy to make the most of the facilities on each site.
The University also has specialist postgraduate centres in Paris, Brussels, Rome and Athens. Many of Kent’s programmes offer dual UK and European qualifications (international double awards) at Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral level, and you can study for a UK degree full-time in Brussels, Paris and Athens or for a term abroad in Rome and Paris.
With a dedicated sports development team, fully qualified health and fitness instructors and support staff, the University’s Kent Sport department offers a wide range of services and caters for over 30 different activities, from racket sports to a casual workout. The department encourages everyone to keep fit and healthy and strives to create a relaxed atmosphere for people to train and enjoy themselves – whether they are a recreational user or a serious athlete intent on competing at a professional level. There are also generous sports scholarships available.
The University of Kent has a flourishing programme of music and students of all subjects, together with staff and the local community, have the opportunity to get involved in the wide-range of extra-curricular music activities.
As well as the many concerts in the Colyer-Fergusson Concert Hall, there are opportunities to perform in other venues, including the spectacular surroundings of Canterbury Cathedral and other historic and exciting spaces around the region.
If you sing or play an instrument you can join the Chorus, Symphony Orchestra, Concert and Big Bands and Chamber Choir which rehearse weekly for public concerts each term. Many other ensembles and bands are formed each year, and budding soloists and conductors also have a chance to develop their talents. The University also offers Music Performance Scholarships usually worth between £1,000 - £2,000. They are awarded each year to talented instrumentalists and singers studying for any degree at the University, together with £500 worth of instrumental or singing tuition with experienced teachers.
