Studying at Kent - greatest experience of my life.

I loved studying at Kent, firstly, because of the beautiful surroundings and the city. Secondly, I never had any problems communicating with university on every level starting with Student Union and ending with Faculty representatives and supervisors. Application process at Kent was really simple, however, I would suggest to apply as early as possible as the spots fill up pretty fast. Academic and social culture was rich for me even as a postgraduate student, the great variety of events, guest lectures, subjects and seminars created a great space for studying, expanding the knowledge on particular interests, relaxing and getting to know new people. Facilities (both study and accommodation) at Kent get modernized all the time and are in a good state. The biggest challenge for me was writing of the MA thesis, lucky I had lots of great and helpful academic staff around me that would help me with any questions I had ASAP. In conclusion, I would definitely suggest studying at Kent, it has been the greatest experience so far. show less
