Find out more about the University of Kent
Hiii, I am current uni of Kent student, although I do not study Creative writing and English Literature myself I asked my friend who studies English Lit to summarise in one sentence how she's found the course and she said: "My seminar leaders this year have been lovely and I enjoy the reading list - there’s a lot of interesting texts x ". The student life is great aswell because we are a campus university we have lot of things to offer like our own club, movie theatre, over 150 societies (literally any society you can think of we have), sports centre/gym (plus all students who live on campus gets free gym membership), and even during first term when we were in the tier system our uni still tried with events: they offered a escape room for every household/flat so you could go with your house mates and a scaremaze during the halloween time. Apart from on campus, Canterbury town is about 15mins on the bus, where the are restuarants, bars, all the shops you need, shisha places etc. Also, there are a few nightclubs in town and by train you can travel to close towns like Whistable, Margate and Dover where you can go to the beach. In terms of accom, I would say there is definitely one that meets your taste and budget. We have a range of ensuite flats and shared houses like Keynes Flats & Houses, Tyler Court A, B&C, Parkwood Flats, Parkwood Houses (the nice newly refurbished ones are): Lypeatt Court, Grimshill Court, Thornden Court, Farthings Court, Ellenden Court, Denstead Court and Clowes Court. Just a side note if you apply for Parkwood you can specify in the accommodation requests box that you would like a particular court so they can give you the newly refurbished houses. I hope this helps!
