Student Profile

Zoi Kokkoni

What attracted you to studying at Kent?
The features that mostly attracted me to study at Kent was the direct and quick communication with the School of Architecture as well as the ease and accessibility of Kent’s online services.

Why did you choose to study the MSc in Architectural Conservation?
I believe that the cultural heritage of Europe, as well as all over the world, should be saved at any cost. There is an architectural continuance of the ancient world until the Nineteenth Century and the Art Nouveau. The traces of the European architectural evolution are there to remind the evolution of the cities and societies and deserve to be conserved. They have to tell a story about the cultures and the nations of this land.

What are you enjoying most about the university?
I mostly enjoy my course, the lectures and discussions with the professors and the trips to the city generally and the Canterbury Cathedral specifically.

Do you have any advice to other international students wishing to study at Kent?
My advice, if any, is to come on time. That means some weeks before the beginning of your course. Be eager to meet other students and make sure that you are following an induction programme.

How would you describe the feel of the campus?
There is an international and vivid feel inside on campus.

Also finally, what university did you attend prior to coming to study at Kent?
I previously studied an Architectural Engineering Masters Degree at the University of Thessaly in Greece.
