Hey 0Lucy0

Are you talking about living in either Kent or Essex, or studying at the University of Kent or University of Essex?

If the latter, I'd be happy to help you find information on courses you may be interested in

I have the unique position where I am from Colchester (where a University of Essex campus is), and I study at the University of Kent - I looked at both Universities, and this is how I came to the conclusion.

Both places have really great history - Colchester is the UK's oldest town and was the previous capital of the UK. Canterbury has of a world famous cathedral, and loads of pubs and buildings which have been around for hundreds of years.


The question is, what kind of area do you want to live in? The University of Kent has several bars, restaurants and clubs on campus, and with a short walk down the hill you're in the city where there's so many places to go, things to do, places to drink and eat (Which you can see my favourites here)!

Canterbury is a beautiful location, which had a major impact in my decision to studying here. The campus is at walking distance from a bustling historic city with beautiful rivers and gardens - or in the opposite direction you can walk through stunning forests for picnics with friends and trips to the seaside. The best part is that Canterbury is only 40-minute train away from London, and one train away from the Eurostar where you can have a weekend in Paris!

I don't want to unfairly speak of UoE, but my experience of Colchester is that public transportation exists somewhat, but the roads are very busy so it takes a long time to get into town where everything is meaning you could be stuck on the campus.


If you need any course specific information, tell me what things you are interested in and I'll find you some great options!

Hi,

Thank you so much, you have no idea how much you have helped me. I know Canterbury is a lovely area and I know people from there which is a benefit. I will most likely stay in Kent, as it fulfils my overall needs more. However, which university in Canterbury is best would you say?

kind regards,

Lucy .
