    please the subject is about kent or reading
    not the prices of train tickets
    Very sorry to disrupt your post like that OP but I was just curious. Anyway don't go by the rankings because at the end of the day, you have to spend 3-4 years at that uni and if you are not going to be happy studying at that particular uni then don't pick it. You'll just regret it.

    I do Creative Events Design and Production.

    I'll have to look out for that bus, although you'll have to get a bus from halls to Chatham and back which'll add another £2-3 onto your journey.

    I wouldn't trust what they say on the open day btw, many of them talk rubbish. They only do open days because they get paid for it
    Paid to do it. Seriously? I thought it was voluntarily. So do the unis just pick people or what?

    from medway its probably cheaper mayb £5 - 10
    its only because i would have to get the train to somewhere then a bus back down then a bus back up to bluewater.

    you wont want to go there weekly anyway, it will get boring lol.
    Yeah you're probably right. It's ok for a bit of change from the boring town but every week could be costly and boring.

    You sign up in freshers week. It's about £6-8 an hour! I am never available when they have meetings though. If your course is small then they have a couple of people specifically representing your course and they get paid too. Although you can volunteer if you want

    I would definitely love to do that. Getting paid £6-8 an hour to exaggerate things. To be honest, I would be willing to talk about any course for that much.

    He'd be turning in his grave if he could see what a craphole it is now.

    To OP, if you did decide to go to Kent, the Canterbury campus is much nicer and Canterbury is a lovely place. Can't comment on the nightlife there however. Medway is just full of scummy, thick, skanky chavs really, I have to be honest with you. It is in a good location since it's a good distance to London, bluewater etc. as has been previously mentioned, but I don't think that'd be a good enough reason to live and study here for 3 years.

    Derived from Chatham in Kent, this term can be applied loosely to every culture with a nasty, thieving element. There are many variants of this creature but all are subject to the following commonalities:...

    Yeah fair point. If I do go there next year then it'll be solely on the basis that I didn't get the grades I needed to go to my firm.

    Many people think that he word Chav derived form Chatham average but it actually originates from the Romani word Chavi meaning youth. However, after going around the town, I can certainly tell why most people think that Chav is actually Chatham average.
