There was a great choice of modules in my course and the ability to be able to choose specific ones of interest was important to me. Good support and services were available and were made aware of them. Lecturers and teachers were supportive and understanding during the Pandemic.View more
The course I have chosen to study is highly competitive and challenging. However, the way the University has organised the course helps students to be more organised and puts us in a position to create a weekly schedule and keep up with it. Our lecturers, seminar leaders and module convenors are always there to help us with anything we struggle with throughout the course which is crucial in a University environment where hundreds of students have queries about the course.View more
A very international school poses itself atop a hill (which by the way is a great exercise for students) with interesting buildings scattered across a lovely campus. The professors are unique and all interesting in some way or another. They too are very international, as I don’t seem to recall more than 2 British professors out of the whole lot!
The multicultural experience was wonderful, as are the plethora of activities and social clubs available to experience. The workload is more than manageable and the opportunities to find friends are plenty!
The campus library, I must say, is the highlight of the University, as it offers any type of facility you may imagine. It has 4 floors, each very spacious and with an imposing architectural finesse.
The accommodation isn’t amazing, but what can you expect when living on the campus of an old university? The newer residential areas however are very posh and quite well-looked after!
The only downside, for international students, is the cost.
The lecturers are passionate, inspired and highly qualified to lead engaging lectures and seminars. Modules such as environmental geography and geographies of development and the global south are interesting. There is a whole module dedicated to GIS which is really good to understand.View more
I am doing my MA in Comparative Literature and I am thoroughly amazed by the tiny details and the effort my lecturers have put into the programme and the courses. What I like about my programme is that all my lecturers are always ready to help me, guide me and encourage me throughout my journey. The campus is completely beautiful it has all the facilities and it is so diversified I have met people from different countries, cultures, races and religions. It is a wholesome experience.View more
As a Psychology with Clinical Psychology student, I really enjoy my program because it covers many aspects of the science to help us choose what field interests us the most. For example, I have already expressed my interest in Clinical Psychology and Counseling, which is why I took an optional module on that. Also, I like the approach of all lecturers because they rely on communication with their students, on interactive sessions that check our knowledge, and most importantly, demonstrate some great skills in presenting such as body language and eye contact. What the university could improve would be to create some extra sessions for students who want to develop experience in this field. They could invite professionals and ask them to speak about their experience, share some advice, and talk about the right approach to treating patients with mental distress. That way, students would be able to plan their career as early as possible, and start gathering experience at an early stage of their education.View more
First of all, let me highlight the good parts of the program. I like how it is detailed with theories and concepts and how it is mostly delivered through both online and in-person classes. I also like most of the teachers and their way of conducting lectures; they are also very responsive, even for topics outside the curriculum.
However, there is still room for improvement. I personally believed that the course can be tailored more towards the applied aspects of data science, with more practicals and case studies for students to solve and learn. They should also teach Python, SQL, and Spark along with R as they are the most used tools in the field.View more
The program is very well managed and taught. The teachers are highly qualified and always interacts with students and ready to resolve their issue. One thing I don’t like about is the management of timetabling. There are quite a few gaps in between classes, resulting in loss of time. Overall, i would say that university of kent is one of the high standards university where they not only focus on quality of education but student wellbeing and organizes weekly activities for students to make sure that there is a balance. Seeing all this, i would highly recommend university of kent as being an international student myself I know how this university has tried not to burden students or provide just an educational environment. There is a diversity of people, you interact with people from different backgrounds, learn about their culture and values and I believe that’s the best part about being in Kent and a reason why International students should come in this universityView more
The campus life of Canterbury campus is really good there are loads of activities like movie night game nights etc. Teaching quality is good and teachers are very active in all manner.
However, some of the teachers need to improve, they should not be teaching such technical subjects with poor skills to deliver. I would definitely recommend others to join the campus as the overall experience is memorable.
One of the main reasons the University of Kent was so attractive to me, was because of its campus structure. It is built more like an American University than a typical European University. A very large campus with many different restaurants, facilities, and activities to do on campus. This helps create a student life and a culture, one that many different people look for in their time at University. Even from the outside, it creates a great image of the University.View more
