At West Kent College, we're committed to giving you the skills and opportunities to succeed in exceptionally tough job markets. We work with leading universities and deliver programmes that are flexible to your needs.

Dedicated University student area

Dedicated areas for our undergraduate students

Within West Kent College we have created dedicated areas for students studying one of our university-level programmes. These can be used for quiet study, for socialising with friends or for discussing tutorial topics with classmates. Each 'university hub' study area has full access to computers and printing facilities. In addition, undergraduates also have exclusive use of our fine dining and bistro restaurant, The Artisan, which is situated on the third floor. Here, students can relax in its surrounds and enjoy coffee, cake or the bistro menu.

A 'personal' student experience

Going to some universities can be daunting: thousands of students all in the same place, lecture rooms holding hundreds of people and tutors you hardly ever meet on a one-to-one basis. Studying with us is different, we believe in a personal experience, which means all students benefit from smaller class-sizes and one-to-one contact time with their tutor.

A quality provision

Our expert lecturers and links with industry, alongside our partnerships with some of the top universities, means we deliver high standards. Graded 'Silver' in the Teaching Excellence Framework, in 2016 98% of students at West Kent College achieved their qualification and 89% progressed into work or further study.
