Superb support for international students
Although we are known as the UK's European University our appeal is world-wide. With 157 different nationalities represented in our student body, and 40% of our teaching and research staff from outside the UK, Kent celebrates intellectual and cultural diversity. Our popularity is due to many factors, including our academic reputation, safe and friendly campuses at Canterbury and Medway, great locations and outstanding computing and study facilities. International students also benefit from our English language support, international students' welcome programme, excellent job opportunities, good student accommodation and a beautiful, multicultural environment.
We have been very successful in building up international partnerships worldwide. One of the benefits of these partnerships has been to develop student exchange programmes enabling international students to experience studying and working in the UK.
We are delighted that students from Epitech, France, have chosen to spend their study year abroad with us and take one of our taught Master's courses. Epitech is our French partner university and is a leading higher educational institution specialising in Computing and IT. Staff from both institutions have enjoyed exchange visits under the Erasmus programme
Our exchange students have come from countries all over the world including Bosnia, Brazil, Brunei, Finland, Kazakhstan, Switzerland, Uruguay and USA.
International Summer Schools
We offer students from the School of Computing the opportunity to apply for free places on immersive summer schools in France. The three-week courses, which are taught in English, and based at Epitech in Paris, give students the chance to explore a different computing theme in depth.
School of Computing undergraduates have the opportunity to secure overseas placements. We regularly have students working in the US, Asia and continental Europe.
