The University of Kent was founded in 1965 and since then has achieved prominence as one of Britain's most innovative and enterprising universities. Our students come from many different backgrounds (there are over 110 nationalities represented at Kent) giving a rich cultural variety on campus. Students come from Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, the United States, Nigeria and Europe as well as from the UK.
