Description

The University of Kent, the UK’s European university, is one of the country’s most dynamic universities. Established in 1965, it now has over 20,000 students studying at its various campuses including Canterbury, Medway and Tonbridge in the picturesque south-east of England and continental-European sites in Athens, Brussels, Paris, and Rome.

The extensive range of subjects we offer at both undergraduate and postgraduate level are supported by a substantial scholarship fund including awards for excellence, subject and locations specific study, and bursaries to provide eligible students with financial support.

Kent is a research-intensive institution that provides an excellent education delivered by world-class researchers. Its reputation for research and academic excellence is confirmed by its success in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The University is ranked 17th in the UK for research intensity, 97% of its research is of international quality and its score for research power has increased by 59%, the third largest increase of the top 50 research intensive universities.

Kent is also ranked among the best in the UK by three national league tables: The Guardian University Guide, The Times Good University Guide and The Complete University Guide. We have been shortlisted for Exceptional Performance in Teaching and Research (Times Higher Education Data Points Award 2016), and our students are among the UK’s most satisfied with their academic experience. They consistently rate Kent as offering one of the best student experiences in the country and, in the 2016 National Student Survey we achieved the fourth highest score in the UK for ‘overall satisfaction’.

The University is a major educational, economic and cultural force throughout its region, and its position as the gateway to Europe is reinforced by its multinational community: Kent has students from 158 different nationalities, 41% of its academic and research staff are from outside the UK and the curriculum supports study and work abroad opportunities.

The University has global partnerships with many prestigious institutions, both in Europe and beyond, to include the USA, Malaysia, China, Russia, Hong Kong and Japan. These partnerships offer many opportunities for students including exchanges, study visits and work placements, as well as the possibility of earning a dual degree from Kent and a partner university.

Alumni of the University include Kazuo Ishiguro OBE, author and Man Booker prize winner, Gavin Esler, BBC journalist, author and Chancellor of the University, Dame Carolyn McCall DBE, CEO of easyjet, and Canon Dame Sarah Mullally, Bishop in the Church of England.

The university is not focused on the development of their students. The teaching is poor, lectures either did no have the knowledge depth to be teaching the subject or they did not have the communication capabilities to get it across. Subjects were just rushed out to get the information across, very boring and no interest in developing the students to be knowledgeable in the subject. The university experience was poor, lack of support outside of the studies, which in themselves was only 16 hours a week.

The Brussels School of International Studies is a great International relations-International Law school based in Brussels, Belgium. The staff are great and very helpful and the professors are some of the best and most knowledge in the IR field in Europe. Many of them already books and/or are working on some at the same as they teach. Students can graduate with one simple degree in IR or they can also mix it with a focus or a minor such as conflict studies or human rights law …

My 4 years at the University of Kent have provided me with so many memorable experiences, from an academic perspective, I found my course to be the perfect balance of accessible and challenging. The teaching staff are committed to helping you to achieve your best both academically and personally and during my time in Kent, there has been a constant and methodical improvement and development of university facilities, with the recently re-developed Templeman Library receiving the coveted Times Higher Education 'Best Library Team' award. Anyone choosing to study here will also find a vibrant and varied nightlife were you are sure to find something you like, the various bars on campus blend affordability with experimentation and any night out is sure to feature a visit to the on-campus club, Venue, which is busy regardless of the night. The University of Kent blends academic and social achievement together well and I would wholeheartedly recommend it any prospective undergraduates.

My time at the University of Kent was a rollercoaster if I can invoke the cliche. As I think you'll find talking to many UKC students, there are great qualities… and not so great qualities that balance out the experience.

Kent is a decent university with a bright social life if you know the right people. It can be a but boring sometimes and the expenses do tend to be higher than other universities. However, as long as you make the correct friends and study hard it will be good for you. It has a lot of its own restaurants and places to chill. The library is one of the best parts about the university. It’s a good university, wouldn’t call it the best however. There does tend to be a slight racial undertone within the university that people should be aware of considering it calls itself a multicultural university.
