    Hi guys,

    I'm an international student and I will start doing my master course at Kent this Sept.

    I'm just wondering how it feels like to live in Woolf with other students. Are post grad students friendly? I don't want to live with a bunch of studious phantoms as I really want to make some foreign friends during my time staying there.

    Thanks

    Hey there,

    You will certainly be given plenty of opportunities to meet a lot of new people during your time there. Inevitably, you will live with people who keep themselves quiet/in their rooms/studious/however you want to name it but there will be some who will be like you too. As well as the students union, postgrads are represented by their own group called the KGSA (Kent Graduates Student Association) who will organise events throughout freshers week and other events throughout the year for postgrads only.

    If you're willing to seek out meeting others, you'll get by just fine :yy:

    I haven't got my confirmation yet! Hopefully I'll get it this week though since I think they did international students first. When I find out I'll let you know and post here

    Cool

    I will be doing IT Consultancy, but my bachelor was business management, and I have never studied programming in English before. So i'm feeling a bit worry if I can make it or not

    Maybe we should contact each other sometime. Do you mind?
