University of Kent

The University of Kent was founded in1965. It is the closest British university to mainland Europe and aims to be the ‘UK’s European University,’ a focus both for its local and its European region. This has been demonstrated in the creation of campuses in Brussels, Paris, Tonbridge and Medway, and the strong links it has developed with over 100 universities across Europe, including the Universities of Amsterdam, Ghent, Vienna and Barcelona, amongst many others. Equally important is its commitment, outlined in its Institutional Plan, to ‘producing innovative world-leading Research’ and ‘making a strong international impact’. It was ranked 17th for research intensity in REF2014, and has almost 20,000 students from 149 countries around the world, with 38% of its academic staff from outside the UK.
