    Takes about 30 mins to walk to Canterbury West as the other poster said taxi might be easier, especially if you have lots of thing with you.
    Bit dubious about it taking 30 minutes! I live 30 seconds from Canterbury West and it takes me 14 minutes to get to campus

    Congratulations everyone!

    International student here. Does anyone know when we will receive our welcome packs?

    I was confirmed on 24th of august and received my Kent ID on the 26th. I still did not get my mail from either the UCAS (AS12 confirmation letter) or the welcome pack from Kent.

    I called them today, but apparently today is a Bank holiday.

    Im a bit worried though because we are supposed to register on the 17th and 18th September in the Uni and i need the CAS for my visa application....

    Is there any penalty if a student doesn't make it to the official registration?

    Also, international students out there: Should i pay the 1st installment of the fees before applying to visa or after?

    Thanks in advance guys, and again congratulations to everyone who got in!

    Well the welcome pack is different from the CAS. For the welcome pack I think they are still sending them out and then of course it will take you a little longer to get yours because you live overseas. I am also an international student and have not yet received mine.

    As for your CAS, I would highly encourage you to call them tomorrow. It is possible that they may still require things from you (scans of your passport, etc.).

    Just a quick question!

    I got my letter from Student Finance the other day, and it says my tutiton fees will be paid directly to UKC in two installments - February and May, but on the Uni website it says that at least some of the fees have to be paid on arrival and the rest by Decemeber, and I'm slightly confussed, how am I supposed to pay if SLC haven't given me the money :/

    Anyone got any ideas?

    EDIT: If the worst comes to it, I could probably scrape my savings together and pay upfront, but wouldn't this mess Student Finance up?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the dates are different for Student Finances. The dates on the website are for people who are not applying for funding from Student Finance.

    The dates listed on the website are for the students paying their tuition fees directly to the University privately. For people paying through Student Finance, they make the payments in February and March directly to the University, so you don't have to worry about anything.

    That's only if you are paying them personally, rather than getting a Tuition Fees loan. Don't worry about it

    Thanks, I was so confussed about that since it doesn't actually say anything about SCL company on that page which is what made me panic slighty. I guess I'm just jumpy because Student Finance have messed my loans and grants up. Thanks again though

    Nope, it just means that's the college you've been assigned to; you can't tell for certain until you're told.

    If you sign into the SDS and click on "my details" it should be there I think.
