Hey, I was wondering if i could have some real advice, student to student.
I live in Wales, Canterbury is a hell of a far journey for me to study, i came for the open day and i didn't get "the vibe" everyone talks about when visiting unis.
I think i may have had a negative approach on the location because the lecturer told me only 24 out of 500 places for Politics and IR year abroad in North America and now with increased grade boundaries. As this is the only uni offering such an amazing opportunity, i still applied, after months, they gave me the offer... YAY!
However, im overwhelmed i have been selected for the course, but it is not yet my first choice, im afraid of making any mistakes especially when it comes down to location.
Could I just have some advice please, on how you all ended up picking uni of kent, any regrets or things you wish you considered before applying? also uni accommodation worries me, Im a really outgoing girl, a wide friendship group but what i cant tolerate is drugs and i know lots of the youth do, especially where i live. When i went to the open day i didn't really see many people which were british, lived and born here (think it was due to the half term) im aware the uni is extremely international (a good thing!) but i didn't really get to ask many questions about the area as i was too focused on the amount of overseas students! So i would just like any insight into the people of Canterbury, the student life and accommodation. Why you picked kent / any regrets.
Thanks, and sorry for being very long winded, im very inquisitive
