University of Kent disappointed me when it comes to providing a student a full university life experiences. Due to the course I chose, i was based i medway campus which did not have much facilities around for me to be able to have fun. It is because of the friends I made during my first year, I cancelled my decision to transfer to different uni. The first few months in the medway was dreadful. I had lots of expectations from how exciting Uni life will with all the social and night life aspect. But it clearly is not, mainly in the Medway campus. Also, it feels like the Uni is purposely trying to separate the medway campus from the main Canterbury campus. Even the graduation for the medway students are not held in the Canterbury cathedral but somewhere else. If you decide to study in Kent and in the medway campus(because of your course), i would highly suggest to do your research first. If you want a good social and night life, it isn't for you. If you just want a quiet life then it might be.


Genuinely a really nice university. Staff are really caring and make effort to make the subjects interesting. Fabulous location- enough nightlife to keep you happy without it being overwhelmingly busy. Lovely campus
