UNIVERSITY OF KENT
Overall Rating

Very positive. I have loved university. There have certainly been ups and downs but my course is very interesting and the tutors/lecturers are exceptional. I have joined societies to try and learn more about different things and I feel like thats only enriched my overall university experience. So glad I decided to pursue postgraduate studies because thats how positive university has been.

Student Union

Not the most helpful with regards to helping societies succeed. I am heavily involved in one society and we've often clashed with the union because of what we do and its put us in a compromising position.

Clubs and Societies

Diverse, inclusive, if you're looking to try something completely out of this world then my uni has a great range of societies.
The sports teams are quite successful and other societies have also won awards.
Be sure to find out if your school has an affiliated society because thats always good to join.

Accommodation

Studio room, quite spacious, lots of storage space with a small fridge/freezer, 2 hobs, sink and kitchen table with two chairs
It's perfect size if you're looking for more privacy and there's a decent sized ensuite as well
Accommodation hall is quite noisy at night so only downside

Uni Facilities

Fantastic!

Course and Lecturers

Most: expertise of the lecturers/seminar leaders, they are teaching something they are obviously passionate about
Least: organisation of the course (I am on a two school course and I don't get enough information from the law school even though that's not my principal department)

City Life

There's something for everyone. Whether you like visiting antique shops, high street shopping, fine dining, a good night out or live music, there's something for you. It's the perfect city for students and the people are welcoming and friendly.

Job Prospects

My school has a standby employability officer and a dedicated office to help those looking for jobs or placements. They offer mock interviews, CV checks as well as personal sessions to get to know your future choices. There's quite a few employability events including guest speaker sessions with people working in civil service etc., which are always worth going to.

Student Support

The university student support and wellbeing has a diverse range of things available to students needed help. Whether its missing home or openly talking to someone about your mental health then the university wellbeing service are very helpful.
My school has a dedicated student support service as well which is nice and my tutors are available to speak to them pretty much about any stress/difficulty you're having.
