Amazing, exciting, life-changing – that’s how our students describe Kent. Your experience starts with your studies, and expands as you get involved in societies, sports, and causes you believe in. You’ll be studying hard but there’ll be time to relax too; getting away from your books helps to create a balanced life, which can really benefit your studies.
