University of Kent
The University of Kent received its Royal Charter in 1965. The University is one of Britain's most dynamic ones with 18,000 students studying in 3 main campuses - Canterbury, Medway, and Brussels. It also has centres in Tonbridge and Paris.
The University was voted the number one university in London and the South-East of England in the National Student Satisfaction surveys for both 2007 and 2008. Students also rated Kent among the UK's top ten universities for student satisfaction. In 2008, it was awarded the prestigious Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education for the work of its Kent Law Clinic. According to recent Sunday Times University Guides, Kent 'can claim to be Britain's only international university'.
Following the 2008 Government Research Assessment Exercise, the University saw much of its research ranked as world-leading in terms of its originality, relevance and rigorous character, and was placed 24th out of 118 participating institutions in terms of the best research.
The University launched its Internationalisation Strategy in 2007. Since then, it has reinforced its reputation as the UK's 'European university' and further developed a network of international partnerships worldwide. For more information, please visit the University website.
