Hello!

I am applying at these days for an Msc in Marketing and since I am an international student, I would like some more info. Which University of the above should I choose for my masters (Kent, Newcastle or Strathclyde)? Which of them has the best community feeling? How is student life there? Lastly, are people from Scandinavia there? I would like to move to Norway after my studies, so meeting such people will be helpful I guess. Thank you in advance

Hi there!

I'm currently in my third year at Kent as an undergraduate, and I really love it here. The campus has such a friendly and welcoming vibe to it, and there is always plenty going on. The university prides itself in being a European university, and is very welcoming to international students. There are loads of cultural societies, here is the link to the Kent Union website where you can see them all, including a Nordic society which could be a great way for you to meet people from there!

I've found student life at Kent to really have the best of both worlds. The campus itself is surrounded in countryside with lots of trees, fields and ponds, and also stunning views over Canterbury and the Kent countryside, which gives it a really relaxed vibe. There is also still loads to do on campus as well, Kent Union has tonnes of societies and sports clubs as well as a club on campus, a cinema, gym, theatre, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. It's super easy to feel at home on campus. Also, town is just a 20 minute walk (or short bus ride) from the university campus. Canterbury is a really beautiful city with cobbled streets, streams and the Cathedral. There are two other universities in Canterbury so it still has a nice student vibe to it with lots of bars, cafes and clubs.

If you have any questions at all about life at Kent or accommodation or anything, then please let me know I hope that this helps!

Yeah they do! There's the careers department where you can go to for job advice, they will check your application, send regular emails with graduate jobs you might be interested in, and will help you to make your CV. Here is the link to their website so you can see what they do; https://www.kent.ac.uk/ces/
I've used them so many times for part-time work and internships and I'd really recommend them!
Also, your academic school will send employability emails and sometimes they hold workshops about careers and things too which will be more specific to your degree type. But if you have any careers questions then I'd really recommend using the Careers and Employability service
