  • Year in Industry: 75% of our undergraduates in 2014/15 are on a placement with leading companies including CISCO in California, HSBC in Hong Kong and IBM in the UK. Placements opportunities are available for all MSc students.
  • KITC: students gain first-hand experience of working as IT consultants as part of their degree.
  • We are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the University of Kent with the Kent Crypto Challenge. Can you crack the code?
