    When people have gone to their UCAS days how did they get there? I'm planning to take public transport but it's all a bit confusing with there being a choice of stations and a wide range of buses to get etc. Looking for some advice!

    I'm local and I'd say that although Canterbury West Station is closer to the uni, it's easier to make/find the bus connection if you can travel to Canterbury East Station. From Canterbury East I'd imagine you get directed to the bus station, but I'm pretty sure the university bus stops on the ring road outside a used cars sales garage, which is en route and less than half way between the bus and railway stations. Also, if you travel all the way to the bus station, you need to use an under pass to cross the ring road, which is a pain.

    Parkwood flats are very similar to Tyler A, but in some ways they're nicer (the windows are certainly bigger :giggle:) nice modern building, ensuite, the kitchens are big, there's a laundry in the building so you wouldn't need to go to the one near the parkwood shop, definitely worth considering :yep:
    Is Tyler A the old or the new one? I saw the new ones and they were incredible.

    What are your thoughts as to which area is best to live in? On campus or in park wood?

    I've applied to KCL, Exeter, Royal Holloway and Durham too.

    Had a rejection from Durham as well ... haven't heard back from the others. I only got the track update email tonight so haven't heard anything from either Uni yet.

    I'm really starting to panic now :/

    I'm getting really put off with Kent on how awful they are with handling offers. I really don't careee about an interview day or tour of the campus, just give me an offer or rejection. I'm really not willing to spend hundreds and travel up to 5000 miles for a tour of the campus and interview lol...

    I'm not an international student though. Also I have done and contacted them so they decided to give me a reponse without an open day or interview since they understood from my case it would be quite impossible in my scenario. That's another 2 months waiting. I've already got unconditional from pretty much every other university, ironically nothing from Kent yet which I want to hear.
