Program Description:

University of Kent

Canterbury in the distance

The University of Kent was granted its royal charter in 1965 as a public research university on a rural campus just north of Canterbury in the county of Kent in southern England. Until 2003, the University's original name was the University of Kent at Canterbury and for this reason is sometimes referred to as UKC.

In addition to the main Canterbury campus, there are as campuses in Medway and Tonbridge in Kent and European postgraduate centres in Brussels, Athens, Rome and Paris. As a result of its extensive ties with and geographic proximity to the continent the University brands itself as "The UK's European university". Its international character is reinforced by having students from 158 different nationalities and 41% of its academic and research staff being from outside the United Kingdom.

The Kent Law School prides itself on its critical approach to the study of law by placing the study of the law within a wider social, economic and political context. This has encouraged an active research culture with the development of a number of research centres and groups including areas such as Gender and Sexuality; European and Comparative Law; and International and Environmental Law, that in turn work on a wide range of projects, often externally funded.

Did you know...

UKC is one of the plate glass universities, a term coined by the writer, Michael Beloff, for universities created or promoted to university status in the 1960s to reflect their modern architectural design which often contains wide expanses of plate glass in steel or concrete frames. This contrasted with the (largely Victorian) red brick universities and the older ancient universities.
