Overview

, the UK’s European university, is one of the country’s most dynamic universities. Established in 1965, it now has over 20,000 students studying at its various campuses including Canterbury, Medway and Tonbridge in the picturesque south-east of England and continental-European sites in Athens, Brussels, Paris, and Rome.

Kent is a leading university that provides an excellent education delivered by world-class researchers. Our reputation for research and academic excellence is confirmed by our success in the most recent Research Excellence Framework: Kent is ranked in the top 20 for research intensity in the Times Higher Education, outperforming 11 of the 24 Russell Group universities. 97% of our research is of international quality and our score for research power has increased by 59%, the third largest increase of the top 50 research intensive universities.

We have also been awarded gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). Based on the evidence available, the TEF Panel judged that the University of Kent delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It is of the highest quality found in the UK*. We recently won the ‘Outstanding Support for Students’ category at the 2017 Times Higher Education (THE) Awards and we are ranked 22nd in the UK by The Guardian University Guide 2018.

The University is a major educational, economic and cultural force throughout its region, and our position as the gateway to Europe is reinforced by our multinational community: we have students from 157 different nationalities, 40% of our academic and research staff are from outside the UK and our curriculum supports study and work abroad opportunities.  We have global partnerships with many prestigious institutions both in Europe and beyond to include the USA, Malaysia, China, Russia, Hong Kong and Japan. These partnerships offer many opportunities for our students including exchanges, study visits and work placements, as well as the possibility of earning a dual degree from Kent and a partner university.
