Whether you want to develop your CV, try something new or explore local parkland – there is something for everyone!
As well as a programme of events our support services are still available – so please get in touch if you have any questions or need some help.
Please remember – you can still go out for exercise as often as you like, either by yourself, with your household or with one other person from a different household. Read our explanation of the new lockdown rules for details.
We are here to support you and we will get through this together!
Look after your wellbeing
There’s a lot going on in the world at the moment, and students are being faced with challenges not yet seen before, which might make you more vulnerable to feeling anxious, depressed or just low.
Whether or not you have struggled in the past with mental health issues, take a bit of time to actively focus on your wellbeing and remember that whatever you’re going through, support is available at Kent.
Develop your CV
Our Careers Advisers have developed a Moodle Module to help you develop your skills at home and will be sharing advice on how to gain experience and prepare applications.
They have also organised a series of employability events for lockdown.
With Christmas around the corner, why not try making some handmade gifts? Student Support and Wellbeing have subsidised some art kits for students during lockdown. You can pick up an art kit for just £4.50 (instead of £10) by 18 November 2020.
Studying during lockdown
Studying and keeping focus during lockdown can be challenging. Our Student Learning Advisory Service (SLAS) offers free one-to-one appointments and are running a whole series of online workshops.
Let’s make music
We are asking all our students, staff, and alumni musicians to record a piece of music in isolation and submit to our Virtual Music Project. Our Music Department will then build it into a festive virtual performance for Christmas.
Explore Kent’s scenic walks
One of the perks of living and studying in Kent is access to lots of outdoor space. From beaches to scenic parks and historic buildings, this county has it all!
During this lockdown you can meet one other person from a different household for a walk with a coffee or you could go as a household.

Bond with housemates
During lockdown you can still socialise as a household. Kent student Rowena has shared some fun things you can do with your housemates during lockdown.
