        Wonderful University and place

        I did both my undergrad and postgrad at the University of Kent, it was the perfect choice. Not only was it academically brilliant it was also a place were lifelong friendships were forged and still endure to this day. The location is remarkable, not only is it beuatiful but it has played a prominant part in British hstory. I had the most wonderful time at the University, including my Erasmus year in Bologn (Italy), and have some wonderful memories....Never forgot my times in Park Wood......

        A Great University.

        I did an M.A in history at Kent. If you are thinking of a history BA or MA, then Kent is the place for you. The staff are engaging and highly knowledgeable and will push you to become a better academic as well as historian without you knowing it.
