Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.

    I honestly love it. Literally my only criticism is that things can be expensive but its just about being reasonable and not going out for restaurant meals or personal shopping every week.
