The best part is having lecturers that are really passionate about what they’re teaching, you can really tell the difference when they enjoy and are really knowledgeable about what they’re teaching. I’d say it could be improved by providing more social student events that reflect what the students are looking for in nightlife etc. As well as having events that are consistent to build connections over time.

I loved my course since it was on the smaller side so I had personal help from my teachers and gained a lot of insight. Improvements would be updated night life for students

Criminology BA (Hons)

The green spaces on campus provide a calming break and escape from the stresses of university. All of the lecturers and seminar leaders I have encountered have all displayed a passion for the topics they are teaching that is inspiring and engaging. The teachers are one of the biggest positives despite all the challenges, uncertainty and stress that they themselves are facing. It is unclear to a lot of us though why the university continues to engage in and find themselves in situations that are negatively impacting their students. Yearly strikes were an unexpected but very present characteristic of my university experience; weeks without the same level of teaching promised when signing a contract with the university feels like a bit of a joke especially when we are expected to pay the same full price of tuition fees. The university could easily improve itself by valuing its teaching staff.

Some of the staff and PhD students are really arrogant - I would of left - it wasn't worth the time.

The student support is amazing, with lots of focus on employability. The employability points scheme is unique to university of Kent and it offers summer internships and work placements that are amazing for experience. I am a mature student and feel that the societies are more tailored towards people who live on campus, however there is a mature student society that are very supportive and facilitate social meet ups in the day. It has plenty of study spaces too, for individuals and for groups and the location is stunning- very close to the city centre whilst being surrounded by woodland and fields full of wildlife.

I really like the library and how it’s open 24/7 and I also like the campus feel and how it feels like a close community but there could be more shops/stores actually on campus.

The library and green spaces are class in the summer. Some buildings are awful like elliot. There’s only a small gym. 30 mins from town.

Best bit is the teaching staff, they always work their hardest to ensure we have the best learning experience possible. The worst is the University's apparent strike mitigation actions that are supposed to help students but are actually jeopardising the value of our degrees and prolonging the union strike actions.
