University has brought me very good memories and has allowed me to meet some amazing people from various walks of life which I am grateful for. However, I feel my time at the University of Kent hasn’t been the best especially in my 3rd and final year of study. The head of my department of study (Music) did not support students throughout this vital year, left assignments unmarked for months and was not responding to any of the concerns expressed by students which had a massive effect on the performance of students
This academic year has been remote learning so the experience has been lacking (not uni’s fault!) but the city is amazing, great pubs/clubs etc, and the campus has all the facilities you could need.
The overall experience had been a positive one, the classes and lectures have been interesting and well taught and although there has been struggles with covid, we have still managed to get in person contact hours and time on the course. The facilities are good for the most part, nothing major to complain about, and there have been society opportunities. Overall I am very happy with my first year experience.
I am yet to hear anything about graduate opportunities however it is only my first year and I’m hoping to hear more in the future
Course has been half online half in person this year due to covid, but they’ve done their best to get as much in person contact hours as possible and all of our performance exams have gone ahead in person, making it still feel like the university experience from our course perspective. However, having half the year online is still frustrating.
Facilities are relatively good, with the two theatres you can use and a number of black box rooms however we have had some classes in different classrooms across campus that aren’t for drama which has been a bit frustrating.
For the most part lecturers are very helpful and are very understanding of mental health issues and the challenges of university etc.
University administration really trying their best this academic year Amazing student support Lecturers very responsive and helpful Would however have been better with in person classes and more activities
Online classes Lecturers try to make it interactive, and do better
The quality of teaching and support on my course is great. There is excellent flexibility, and the staff take into consideration the commitments you have beyond studying. The staff in DaLL are friendly and really care about supporting the progress of their students.
I feel the MSc is benefiting my career and giving me a new range of knowledge and skills. The university also provide careers services, but as I already have a career, I havent taken advantage of it.
Very convenient for those who want to study alongside their work. 3 day, 9-5 weekends; 5x a year.
Library is sufficient. The Medway campus is quite basic if you are a full-time, but as a student who doesn't live on campus, it's fine.
This year has been a lot different due to covid, and I think considering this my experience has been reasonably good, however it hasn’t really felt like we have been at uni. The lecturers have tried their hardest to keep content engaging, but not being able to visit offices and other on campus facilities has been difficult.
so far is hasn’t been the best but that’s because of Covid-19 and everything had been online so it’s not exactly motivating me but hopefully next year will be better but with the little i have done it seems like when we get back to face to face it should be fun!
i have loved my first year of uni. Despite the virus i feel like different chats and groups set up virtually have helped me to socialise and meet people like myself. i have made new amazing friends and i have also taken advantage of the things open to me such as the library. My seminar leaders have been very welcoming and helpful with helping the transfer from sixth form to uni be as smooth as possible. i can’t wait for next year !
we recieve emails when things are available and there has been a careers week to help us but these are very limited at the moment due to the virus
i enjoy learning virtually. Although teaching has been online lectures and seminar leaders have been very receptive and helpful during these times and always take into consideration the circumstances
shared spaces on the main campus where i study are always clean and feel new. No matter where you stay on campus all the facilities are accessible since there are electric scooters to help us get around. I haven’t personally been to the gym or sports center yet - due to corona - but my flatmates give amazing reviews
i haven’t tapped into anything offered but i do know where to find the necessary help if needed
Lockdown has undone me horrible stuff genuinely quite upsetting, all I’m sayin is if you send me 2k I can meet my rent and keep me fed much love xx
I get the employability emails but u know I air them
It’s absolutely shit other then student support they give me extensions
They have a decent library and a gym I guess bit dirty though bare seagulls, one nicked my mates sandwich
Absolutely amazing no word of a lie
Overall I’d give 4/5 stars for my experience this year. This year has proven very hard for me like many of my other peers too. I haven’t been able to complete some of my modules in the ways that I wanted to due to covid. However, I have made do with what I have and therefore have tried my very best.
