About The Program

The University of Kent offers the widest range of courses of UCEAP’s English university partners. It has a leading undergraduate law program and a strong humanities department. Canterbury is consistently voted the UK’s safest student city. Study abroad in one of the most historic cities of UK-England. Canterbury is an ancient medieval city full of bookshops, pubs, theaters and a 1,000-year-old cathedral. The university is less than an hour from London by train, offering a perfect base for exploring the UK and greater Europe. Catch the high-speed Eurostar to France and Belgium through the Channel Tunnel.


The Canterbury campus of the University of Kent has six colleges and is self-contained with everything a student needs within walking distance. The Templeman Library caters to night owls and morning birds. It’s open 24/7 most study weeks and has hundreds of quiet study spaces, a lecture theater, a café, and an exhibition gallery. The Gulbenkian is the University of Kent’s Arts Center showing films, visiting speakers, and concerts, and the Gulbenkian Café showcases locally sourced, homemade food for a taste of English country fare. The Canterbury campus of the University of Kent is built on more than 300 acres of beautiful English parkland, overlooking the historic city of Canterbury. All buildings are set among green and tranquil open spaces covered with mature trees. The Medway campus is close to the towns of Rochester and Chatham and has two sites: Pembroke and The Historic Dockyard. Both are a quick 10-minute walk from each other, so it’s easy to make the most of both. A free shuttle service travels between the Canterbury and Medway campuses, and a bike warehouse in Medway offers student discounts on bicycles and cycle maintenance.
