Canterbury is an ancient city, famed for its cathedral and the rich history of pilgrimages that took place there, well documented by Geoffrey Chaucer in 'The Canterbury Tales'.
The modern-day city is based around the cathedral and has many old, narrow streets with plenty of shops and places to eat and drink.
The University of Kent's Canterbury campus is large and located near the centre of Canterbury, overlooking the cathedral.
Onsite facilities include a general shop and a laundrette, plenty of sports facilities, a cinema and a large park for football, rounders and many other outdoor sports. Keynes, Turing and Eliot Colleges are the hubs of the summer school, including all accommodation and teaching facilities.
The student accommodation is on campus; this can be an exciting experience and a great way to meet new people and make friends.
The students will live in flats with around 14 en-suite single bedrooms and a shared kitchen/common area in each flat. The flats are furnished to a high standard and there is access to student Wi-Fi.
The safety of our students is very important. The University of Kent has a 24hr security presence, CCTV and secure access entry systems.
The campus is located not far from Canterbury's city centre. It takes around 25 minutes to walk there, and part of the walk is pedestrianised. There are shops on campus, and even more in the city centre.
All journeys on the student excursion programme will be by private coach.
