Pre-sessional Video Competition Winner 2021

The winners, Sirorat & Nattaphon, with Charlene Earl, Programme Manager (In-sessional & Pre-sessional),

Each year, International Programmes hosts a video competition  for all students on one of our pres-sessional courses. The theme of the submisisons was ‘The Journey of a Pre-sessional Student’.

Students were asked to share their memories with us by creating a video (that could include photographs) – for a chance to win the top prize of £100 of Amazon vouchers!

In the videos, we wanted to see footage taken during class (online and in person), online enrichment hours and on trips the students have been on with our student ambassadors, as well as any trips they have made themselves with friends or other footage relevant to the programme.  The video must have shown what the students most liked about being a University of Kent student so far, including elements of the Pre-sessional course, using MS Teams and Moodle, using the library (both online and in person) discovering the campus, meeting new friends, trying new food or learning something new.

The Competition was open to students enrolled on a International Programmes Pre-sessional English course in 2021.

Thank you all for your incredible entries – and now for the winners!
