How to Apply

First Step: 

Write an essay of 750-1,000 words on the following:

“When the first students arrived at the new University of Kent at Canterbury (as the University was then known) in 1965, there were no societies, no sports clubs, and no student representation. In 2018, 20,000 students enjoy 67 sports clubs, 189 societies, and there are over 400 student representatives.

Kent’s first students had the opportunity – and the responsibility – to start all of these from scratch. If we were opening a new university in 2019 and you were in that first student intake, what would you start and why?”

Second Step:

Save the essay as a Word document. At the top of the document, please include:
