The classes are stimulating and enjoyable.

I live off campus, but I like the proximity to London and historic towns, such as Rochester. It's nice to be so close to so many things to be able to visit them on the weekends.

The reputation of University of Kent as well as offering a unique course combining my interests in sport, health and fitness. I felt the course met my interests more than a typical sports science degree.

I particularly valued the close-knit community that the Medway campus offered, access to top of the range science and lab equipment and a well-equipped Drill Hall library and knowledge resources.

What did you enjoy most about the University of Kent course that you are attending?
The open door policy of the lecturers and the support they provided. Lessons were well-structured and stimulating and the staff highly knowledgeable and passionate. Smaller class sizes were an added bonus as you had more 1.1 contact time. The lecturers often went that extra mile e.g. Steve Meadows for allowing us to attend a Phase IV cardiac rehabilitation class.

I lived off campus – and had an hour commute. It was only an hour journey and this made it more convenient to attend and cost efficient as I did not need to relocate during my studies

The encouragement from the lecturers and push to excel has certainly helped me.
