About the Program

The University of Kent lies on a 300 acre campus on the outskirts of Canterbury overlooking Canterbury Cathedral. Consistently ranked in the top 10 UK universities for student satisfaction, Kent boasts world class academic, library, and student resources. A distinctive feature of the university is its collegiate system. There are four Colleges - Darwin, Eliot, Keynes, and Rutherford - each with its own living, social, teaching, and study facilities. The University of Kent also boasts an active student union, the Kent Union, which has over 100 clubs and societies.


The University of Kent is located in Canterbury in the heart of Kent, about 60 miles southeast of London. An ancient city full of links to the past, Canterbury is not only home to the world famous Canterbury Cathedral, it's also full of bookshops, pubs, restaurants and theatres. A student friendly city, you'll find in Canterbury a fun and friendly atmosphere, with medieval buildings nestled alongside modern shops, restaurants, and bars. Kent is also known as the "Garden of England", with many villages, castles, walking and cycling trails, and miles of scenic coastline within the county.
