Hi! I’m struggling to pick between UoN or Kent for psychology as I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about both. A lot of people are saying Nottingham is much better and is more reputable but apparently Kent is more enjoyable? I’m just worried as most people have told me that Nottingham has high crime rates. Kent does seem more friendly as they sent me a personal letter. maintenance Can any students studying at either university tell me about their personal experiences

Every city has crime, avoiding it is good self practice, common sense & luck.
sending out a letter is just marketing they probably sent thousands of these to students.

I went to Notts, loved it personally!

Hey,

I am a current 3rd year at Nottingham and study psychology as part of my degree.
From my experience all of the psychology lecturers have bene really enthusiastic and more than happy to help and answer any questions which is really nice.
The campus is really nice and makes studying there a good experience, especially when the sun comes out.

In terms of the city there is crime wherever you go and as long as you are safe and sensible you will be at no higher risk than anywhere else. There is also a large student population due to there being 2 unis in the city so there are always people about that will help if anything happens.

The uni has loads of societies and sports clubs too so as well as accommodation there is lots of opportunity to meet people and socialise.

I hope this helps,
Emily

Hi!
I am aware that the UCAS deadline is today and that you might have already made your decision.

I am not a psychology student but I can tell you what the university has to offer

Psychology at Kent is accredited by the British Psychological Society and ranked 5th for research intensity in The Complete University Guide 2022. The university is equipped virtual reality laboratories that will allow you to test out your own theories and hypotheses in our excellent facilities, including brain stimulation. The modules are very exciting, providing you with fresh perspectives from world-leading experts. Your academic journey can also be implemented with a year abroad or placement year.
I will attach the link to the official website that provides more detail information about the course, entry requirements, your modules and career prospects: https://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/under.../49/psychology
If you scroll down you will find a full break down of the compulsory and optional modules and each has a link that explains it better.

The university offers students a huge amount of support from finding placements and internships to finding graduate jobs through our Career and Employability Service. You can discuss your options with both academic and career advisors to have a better idea of your prospects and how to achieve your long term goals. You also benefit with the university's connections to gain access to the industry as mentioned above.

Canterbury is a beautiful location, which had a major impact in my decision to studying here. The campus is at walking distance from the lovely historic town and Canterbury is one train away from London. Depending where you live, you might want to consider what distance you are most comfortable travelling to. Although Kent is not part of the Russel Group, its reputation is quite high in such a competitive field and it keeps experiencing a great influx of home and international students that come to further their education.

Making these decisions is not easy but I hope this helped a little! The website will help answer most of your questions, but if you have any more questions, feel free to contact us or the university directly (you can find their contacts at the bottom of the page).

We hope to see you in September. Best of luck!

Hi,
Im a second year maths student at UoN but have taken psychology modules as part of my degree. Personally, I found the department to be really friendly, supportive and the lectures were taught at a high quality. Nottingham also has a super nice campus with a vibrant atmosphere all year round. The city isnt too far away and theres always stuff to do! I love it here and would definitely recommend !
