School of Computing

2020 Applicants

If you have applied to study with us this September, you can find out more about the School of Computing study experience here.

Impact of coronavirus

Please be assured that we are actively monitoring this rapidly-evolving situation and are working hard to manage any impact that the pandemic may have on students who are due to join us in 2020.

We are sorry that we had to cancel some of our applicant and selection days and are disappointed that we won’t get a chance to meet you and show you around.  However, on this page you will find more information about what life at Kent is like.

We remain operational as a University and, while we are uncertain as to the exact conditions we will be working in over the next few months, we remain ‘open’ and are planning our autumn activity. We will always keep health and safety issues front and centre and will prepare for a range of scenarios.

Virtual events

Chat to current University of Kent staff and students via UniBuddy. We also hope to run live virtual events in the coming months - watch this space for more information. In the meantime you can also contact us via emailFacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Have you chosen a Year in Industry?

All of our degrees can be studied with or without an industrial placement after your second year. From local councils to tech companies, our students are supported to find the placement that is right for them.

Hear from students who chose to work as part of their degree.

Why choose Kent?

Students at our Medway campus give you an insight to what it is like to be a student in the School of Computing in this short video. Our student stories blog is another great place to find out what it is like to be a Kent student.


More tech opportunities at Kent

BarCamp Canterbury is usually a physical tech-based 'unconference' but this year moved online. This is just one activity some of our staff and students get involved with in their spare time. As a Kent computing student you would be very welcome to join in and add your ideas.
