Important Information Before you Begin

Don’t miss Kent’s Welcome webpage, packed full of information on arrivals, what’s on, settling in and life at Kent.

Make sure you take time to read our International Programmes Student Support Moodle Page, which contains a comprehensive guide to your studies, from information on attendance and assignment submission to time management.

And also ensure you’ve read through our IFP and Foundation Year Moodle Page, where you’ll find all the useful general information you need for your Foundation Year, including the Student Handbook, info on student reps, marking criteria and assessment schedules.

Plus, if you have any questions once you have arrived on campus, our Arrivals Hub in Nexus is open 9.30-16:30 Mon-Fri from 13th Sept – 17th October (also open from Sat 16th & Sun 17th Sept).

We’re really looking forward to meeting you! See you soon!
