You need to look carefully at the course content for each University. Each will offer totally different modules/units, and you need to be certain that all 5 of your chosen Unis are offering the course you actually want to do.

Your choices will be governed by your grade predictions, and A level subject choices, and with a wide enough range so that you have at least one potential Insurance choice.

'Reputation' is a totally nebulous concept. You can't measure it, and even if you could, it would tell you nothing useful on which to base your decision.

You need to go to Open Days, listen to the presentations for several different subjects/courses, and ask questions. Only by visiting a Uni will you get the 'flavour' of that Uni, and be able to decide where you will feel most comfortable and where you will enjoy studying for three years.

Thanks for your interest!

Hi returnmigrant is correct in the assumption that attending an open day is your best bet for getting a feel for a university. Our upcoming open days are on the 5th and 12th of October should you be available and want to head down?

You can register for the open day at this link: https://www.eiseverywhere.com/ereg/n...ventid=466722& this is the best way that you can be updated with anything important by the university.

Here are links to our politics: http://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-st...relations.aspx and economics courses: http://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-st...economics.aspx http://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-st...economics.aspx (depending on your A level choices).

I hope that this is helpful! Best of luck with your studies 😊

Hey!
Really pleased to hear you're considering studying at Kent I'm currently in my final year at Kent so if you have any questions about life in general at Kent I'm more than happy to help! One of the best way to decide which university is best for you is to take a good look at the course structure of the courses at each university and decide which one appeals to you the most as this can really shape your academic experience. Also, definitely go to open days too, it's super important to feel comfortable in your university environment as it can make everything so much more enjoyable and easier to settle in The University of Kent have a couple of open days coming up in October, if you're interested in coming along, here is the link to the online booking for the open days.
I don't study economics or politics unfortunately, but you can use the Unibuddy system online to talk to current students at Kent studying economics and politics if you'd like more of a sense of what it is like to study here. Here is the link.

I hope that this all helps! Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your university applications
