Why we chose the University of Kent…

Academic excellence

Stimulating courses

Specialist teaching

Hanna Nõmm from Estonia is studying for a BA in Sociology and Social Anthropology.

Dk Nur’Izzati Pg Omar from Brunei is studying for a BA in Employment Relations and Human Resource Management.

Ankit Vaid from India is studying for an MSc in Distributed Systems and Networks.

“Kent has high standards and if you want to challenge yourself intellectually, you can get a lot out of the experience. When I started looking at the Kent website I thought the degree looked really good. The School is diverse, so you can study anything from terrorism to mental health, and the theory always seems relevant to contemporary society.”

“One aspect of the teaching that really impressed me was the application of theory to practice, how what is taught in the classroom can be applied to real-world situations. Also my class is made up of students from many backgrounds. Often, we are encouraged to work in groups and I find the diversity really interesting.”

“I was going through all the university courses to see if they could match what I wanted to study. Kent came the closest and for computing it was 11th in the UK. There were areas that I knew I wanted to specialise in, but I’m learning even more than I expected. My research project is in XML, the latest technology and a very powerful language.”

Supportive staff

Global perspective

Cosmopolitan social scene

Michelle Uduji from Nigeria is studying for a BSc in Biomedical Sciences.

Martin Gaal from Canada is studying for a PhD in International Relations.

Emile Doger De Speville from Mauritius is taking the LLB in English and French Law.

“An International Officer helped me with everything, including my application for a student visa. When I got here, everyone was very helpful – people told me exactly what I had to do and where to go. Our lecturers are supportive as well. I like the fact that you can discuss your studies one-to-one. We also get careers talks to help you decide what to do next.” 4

“I always wanted to attend a British university, so finding one in Brussels was a winning combination. There are over 50 nationalities studying at the Kent campus in Brussels, so you get a lot of different perspectives. Also, being in Brussels means you are close to the European institutions, as well as the NGOs and organisations such as NATO.”

“I knew some people who had gone to Kent and they told me that the social life was really good. Mauritius is a small country so you’re always bumping into the same people, but at Kent the social scene is very varied and international. I’ve got friends from Kenya, Germany, Greece and Switzerland, as well as the UK.”

International Student Guide 2011

Academic excellence With high ratings from two major independent surveys, Kent has a reputation as one of the leading universities in the UK. Excellent courses Kent has some of the best courses in the country. Our courses aim to challenge you and give you the ability to take your studies to the highest level. In the last National Student Survey, we scored very highly – 90% for overall satisfaction with our courses. For individual course details, see www.kent.ac.uk/studying

“I decided to study at Kent because my aim is to do research and my professor is one of the greatest academics in the field.”

World-leading research You are taught or supervised by academics at the top of their field. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), Kent was ranked 24th out of 159 institutions for worldleading research. This means that we are considered among the best research universities in the UK.

Mohammad-Reza Nasiri-Avanaki from Iran is studying for a PhD in Medical Image Computing

Over 55% of our research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent and eight of our subject areas were rated in the top ten nationwide.

Developing research The level of research income received by Kent increased to £13.8 million in 2008 and the University also saw a rise in government capital funding, receiving £16.8 million in grants for new research and teaching facilities. As a result of this investment, facilities are continually being updated – for instance, the recent £1 million refurbishment of the biosciences laboratories. Seven new academic research centres have been launched in recent years.

Prestigious partnerships Kent has partnerships with some of the most prestigious universities in the world – including Waseda University in Japan; Hong Kong University; University of California, Berkeley; the Sorbonne; and the École Normale Supérieure in Paris.

A global education Kent has a great international reputation. It offers study opportunities around the world and an approach that is truly global. The UK’s European University Kent’s is known as the UK’s European University thanks to its network of connections within Europe. These links provide the foundation for a global approach to research and teaching. Kent also has its own centres in Brussels and Paris as well as many European partners.

Study in another country Kent offers you the chance to study in another country as well as the UK. We have a wide range of degrees where you can spend up to a year in one of our partner universities (see right). This time spent in another country is an integral part of the degree course for French, German, Italian and Hispanic Studies (Spain or South America). But you don’t need to be a language student to take up this option. Other courses allow you to study at universities in Finland, the Netherlands, China, Hong Kong, Japan or the United States, which provide tuition in English.

International travel Our location gives you easy access to major European cities. A Eurostar train can take you to Paris or Brussels within two hours. We are also close to the London airports and an hour by train from London St Pancras.

Cultural understanding The atmosphere at Kent is very cosmopolitan. With so many international students at Kent, any seminar discussion or social event can introduce you to an alternative viewpoint from another part of the world. This helps you to gain an understanding of other cultures and make friends from all over the world. 6

Teaching from a global perspective Globalisation has an impact on many areas of activity, from business, law and politics to cultural activities. Our courses at Kent are designed to offer the global view. This helps you to gain an international perspective that may be useful within your future career.

Centres in Brussels and Paris Brussels is known as ‘the capital of Europe’ and Kent is the only UK university with a centre in Brussels. The Brussels courses are specialist postgraduate degrees taught in English. Kent also

offers courses in Paris which means that students on a range of MA programmes can spend a term studying in the heart of the city.

International recognition A degree from Kent is likely to make a big difference to your career prospects. Employers value the added confidence that comes from spending time abroad and a British qualification is highly regarded around the world. Employers also value language skills, especially in English which is the language of international business.

Our friendly community We have a cosmopolitan and welcoming atmosphere at Kent. Students describe the University as a friendly place, with a great social scene. Welcome Week To help you settle in when you arrive, we hold a special Welcome Week in September. This includes a greeting at the airport, a special welcome dinner (giving you the chance to meet other international students) and trips to see local tourist attractions. This week takes place before the start of the term’s lectures and seminars so you have time to relax and make friends.

“At Kent there are people of all nationalities and views and there are a lot of student societies. Don’t be afraid to get involved! You will meet great people and it’s a lot of fun.”

Academic schools host events during Welcome Week to prepare you for your studies. During this week there are also campus tours, themed evenings and sporting activities for all students. If you are arriving in January or May, we greet you at the airport and hold social events to help you settle in.

Michael Rapley from Barbados is studying for a BA in Wildlife Conservation

Social facilities At Kent there are plenty of places to have fun and meet up with friends. Our campuses offer a range of cafés, bars, restaurants and sports facilities. The Canterbury campus has its own theatre, nightclub and cinema as well. There are numerous student societies that you can get involved in.

Multi-faith and multicultural Kent is a multi-faith university with chaplains from the Anglican, Buddhist, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Methodist, Pentecostal and Quaker traditions. Kent’s student societies often celebrate a wide range of festivals such as Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving and Diwali.

Meet people from home

Mild climate

To create a supportive student network, Kent has set up email groups and a student buddying scheme, which allows you to contact other students from your home country. But the support doesn’t end there. After you graduate, it’s also possible to get in touch with Kent alumni in your own country, providing a life-long network of friends.

Our UK campuses are located in the south-east of England, which means we have one of the sunniest locations in the country. During the summer, students make the most of this by socialising in the open-air café-bars on campus. Kent also has an outdoor arts festival every year in the Canterbury grounds. Both campuses are also close to the beautiful English countryside of Kent.

Quality accommodation Our University accommodation allows you to make an easy transition to living in the UK – you don’t have to worry about finding somewhere to live and all of your basic bills, except for a TV licence, are included in the rent. Canterbury Students enjoy living on our Canterbury campus – it’s in a beautiful green location and has everything you need within easy walking distance – laundry rooms, shops, restaurants and bars, a theatre and cinema as well as a sports centre. Our campus accommodation comes in a range of styles, from college rooms to shared houses. All of our rooms have a free internet connection. International students at Canterbury are offered a single room in University accommodation for their first year of study (providing they meet the application criteria). If you study for a Foundation Programme, you are offered University accommodation for both your foundation year and the first year of your degree.

Undergraduate room

Some rooms have a shared kitchen so you can prepare your own food if you wish. Others have access to a kitchenette with a kettle, microwave and small fridge. If you stay in one of these rooms, breakfast is provided as part of the price (or you can have an allowance towards an evening meal). For other catering, all students can use the restaurants on campus that provide good-value snacks and cooked meals. Some rooms are only available during term-time (31 weeks); this means that your rent does not cover the winter and spring vacations. Others are available for a full academic year. If you are here for a short-term study programme, shorter accommodation stays are possible.

Undergraduate shared house or apartment

You share a self-contained house or apartment with other students. Each has its own fully equipped kitchen, so you can cook your own food or eat out on campus – it’s your choice. These houses or apartments are let for the entire academic year (39 weeks), so you can stay there during the winter and spring vacations. Apartments have en-suite rooms, houses have a shared bathroom.

Postgraduate shared apartment

Medway Kent students have the chance to stay in a new development called Liberty Quays, right by the River Medway. It’s an attractive setting and only ten minutes walk from the campus. Each flat has single en-suite rooms for six to eight students, who share a fully equipped kitchen. The accommodation has its own social facilities and launderette and each room has internet access. There is also access to a general shop for food and household goods.

Postgraduate students are offered a place in Woolf College, a new development for our postgraduate community. The en-suite rooms are arranged in flats with six or eight students per flat and a large shared kitchen. The College has its own social facilities and launderette. Each room is rented for almost the entire year (51 weeks). Postgraduate students who need accommodation for a shorter period of time should contact our Accommodation Office.

International students at Medway are offered University accommodation for the first year of study (providing they meet the application criteria). Accommodation for further years of study is subject to availability.

Private accommodation

Brussels

In the second year of study, most undergraduate students rent private accommodation. Usually they share houses; 2010 prices were roughly £75 to £90 a week (excluding bills). If you prefer to live off campus in your first year of study, Kent’s Accommodation Office can help you to find private accommodation.
