Dear @Aleyy044,

Deciding which university you would like to attend is a very complex decision. There are many factors that you can think about to help you make that decision.

You will want the best university for you. I highly recommend thinking about what you want out of your university experience. For example, what is most important to you might be the laboratory facilities, accommodation styles, lecture styles, class sizes, or the student union. Once you have decided what is most important to you, you can look at the differences between the two universities.

The best way to experience a university is on an open day. The University of Reading's next open day is on Friday, June 14th. Other open days for the University of Reading can be found here. To find out what to expect on an open day, you can read my blog here. It tells you what to expect and how to most benefit from the experience.

Simialrly, we have an online campus tour where you can explore the university facilities. The virtual tour is great if you cannot make it to an open day; it was created during COVID so everyone could experience the university from their homes. To access the virtual tour, follow this link.

The biological science school within the University of Reading is supportive. Its tutors are supportive, and the lectures are great. The lab facilities can accommodate over 150 students, and there is a small museum, which is very helpful for molecular studies.

If you have any specific questions, please let me know i would be happy to tell you more.

Many thanks

Hi there

I am currently a final year law student at the University of Kent. My experience here at Kent has been lovely, hopefully I can provide some insights into what it is like to study here. 🙂 When deciding which University to go to, there may be several things for you to consider:

Support: students at Kent are offered a lot of support from first year. Whether that is relating to wellbeing, studies, or career options. Each year, I was assigned an academic advisor, who I was able to go to for support relating to my studies. I have found this really useful in improving my grades and understanding my studies in more depth. The seminar leaders and lecturers are approachable and friendly, I find it easy to speak in class or ask any enquiries after lesson. 🙂

Campus: The canterbury campus is really lovely, the facilities are neat and well-kept. There is also a lot of green space on campus which makes the area really lovely. All the campus facilities are within close proximities to each other (and the on-campus accommodation, if this is a possibility you are considering). The city centre is also really close to campus, just a 30minute walk away, making it really convenient for shopping, and some students may choose to live off campus. If you get the chance to, I would really recommend attending our open day event: Open Days - Visit Kent - University of Kent.

Work life balance: Kent students are offered a good work-social balance. There are many different opportunities outside of lessons, such as societies and activities which are hosted throughout the academic year. With a diverse population, there are many student hosted societies, there will certainly be some that interest you.


I hope this helps.
If you have any further queries about studying at Kent, I will be happy to answer them. 😀
