The University of Kent is not accepting applications for the Spring 2018 term because the number of students exchanged between the two schools is currently out of balance.
?The University of Kent is a British institute of higher education in Canterbury, England. Founded in 1965, the university has a student population of over 17,000 students. About 20% of that population is comprised of international students, coming from outside of the UK. Kent offers a variety of student support services and facilities to all of its students, including a large library, cafés and restaurants, a theatre, medical service, and counseling support.
Kent’s campus is a classical English campus. Today, many say it offers the “Harry Potter” experience, with a lot of old fashioned charm. Subjects taught at Kent include the following: Business, Classical Studies, Drama, Economics, Film Studies, French, German, History, International Relations, Italian, Literature, Philosophy, Political Science, Theology, Psychology, and Sociology.

Canterbury is a city in eastern Kent, in the southeast region of England. The city’s medieval history is easy to see in its streets and buildings as well as the world-famous Canterbury Cathedral, which is the venue for the University’s degree ceremonies. The Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s church make up a World Heritage Site – one of only 15 sites in the British Isles.
Canterbury has a thriving cosmopolitan atmosphere. The streets are packed with small shops, bookshops, large stores and over 80 restaurants, bars and pubs. The city also includes the Marlowe Theatre, art galleries, a cinema, nightclubs, leisure centers, swimming pools and the St. Lawrence County Cricket Ground. Canterbury is only a short train ride from London, a 30-minute drive from the Channel Tunnel and only six miles from the beach at Whitstable.
