Based in the heart of Medway
KBS’s Medway campus lies within the historic Chatham Dockyard – a globally-renowned centre of shipbuilding which has more recently turned into a set for various TV shows and films. Critically, the Medway towns are just 40 minutes by train from central London, or just over an hour by car meaning that the University of Kent is more accessible to those coming from the capital. Take a look at our ‘Eight reasons to study in Medway’ blog for more of what the location has to offer!
The facilities at Medway rival those of any larger campus; there are several cafes, restaurants, bars and bistros on site, and the Student Hub is firmly at the heart of the action.
