    I got an applicant email from kent uni with a student guide which when i waved my cursor over the picture in teh student guide, the picture was titled 'girl against blue background' ...but there's a picture of a guy...

    It isn't something important, but i just wondered who else noticed this... it was kinda funny the guy was referred to as a girl...well for me...


    just wave yoru cursor over the email from kent (those with offers) and tell me if you see it too :O

      Don't go to the Canterbury campus either. It's shiiiiiite. It's just, what was once a nice green hill, ruined by grey concrete blocks.

        The Canterbury campus is nice from what I saw. I'm not overly picky when it comes to decor and buildings, however the reason I hated Medway was simply because there is nothing on the campus and places like Chatham aren't the nicest of areas to go out in.

        That said, Aberdeen isn't much of a looker either, regardless of what RM has to say

        Why would they name it "girl against a blue background" anyway? That's like a placeholder title you would use so the designer would know what picture to put there... haha

        Kent is really disorganised. Both times I applied for different courses, even on different campuses I had a lot of problems.

        The first time, they lost my exam results somehow and wouldn't give me a place until they received them in a few days time which meant I lost my accommodation. Then when I asked to withdraw my offer they took 3 days to do it which meant I nearly lost my place at another university.

        Second time I applied I never received my welcome pack so I had to call out for it to be resent, if it was ever sent in the first place. I didn't find out if I had accommodation until 2 days before I was scheduled to move in.

        Other things:
        - Kent is the ONLY university I couldn't get through to on results day. Other universities I may have had to call twice Kent I had to call 16 times. And even then the person on the phone was useless and put me through to completely the wrong department.
        - I've had my university card just over a year, seldom ever use it but it's already peeling apart because of their crap quality.
        - There's no help if you're having any problems with the course. The University claims there is, but when you actually need them, there's no help available.
        - I just recently got about 4 viruses after logging on to the university network and now my computer won't work. I've had my laptop less than a year :nn:
        - Printer in my uni building doesn't work 80% of the time. The other 20% it doesn't have either black or coloured ink or paper.
        - Work takes a LONG time to get back to us. Last year I had to wait 3 months to get results back from a piece of work. This year it's been at least a month already.
        - Societies at Medway are awful, so university life is really boring. Medway's solution is to travel 40 miles to go to Canterbury. Wtf?! Ditto for a good Freshers week and Summer Ball. Plus I feel really unsafe walking around.
        - Medway is just a really rubbish area and the uni don't make life here any more interesting. Not necessarily their responsibility, but there's not much to do on campus either.
        - Most of the help sessions or career days are at Canterbury. We are told what building/room it is, but I've only been there once before, I'd get lost
        - The jobshop seldom has jobs outside of Canterbury, but even then there aren't all that many.
        - Overpriced uni accommodation. My room in a house is £1300 a year cheaper, including bills :confused:
        - No transport from halls to uni building, which for me isn't on campus, it's on the Historic Chatham Dockyard which is a 30-35 min walk away. Lovely in summer, bloody miserable in winter. University suggested a shuttle bus but nothing came of it.

        and a whole bunch of other pedantic things.

        Don't get me wrong, some aspects of uni life have been good, but overall I'm not impressed.

        :/
        That really does sound pretty ****ty tbh.
        Why did you apply again to the Medway campus? If I were you and I'd had a really **** experience before, I would have gone to another uni for an MA.
        Slightly off topic but did you like RHUL?
        I have an applicant day on the 15th so I'll see what it's like when I get there. Maybe they've changed? :erm:
        If there's one thing I can't stand, it's disorganisation.
        I want to go to UEA and RHUL more than I do Kent... hope they let me in!

        Nope, sorry to say I didn't but that's because I was on my iPhone when I got the email. I'll check on my laptop.

        Haha, I'm laughing so much right now. I have a University of Aberdeen advert on the side! Thanks RM! :laugh:
