Highlights: 
  • Canterbury is a small city with a warm and friendly atmosphere. In medieval times it was a center for pilgrimage to the shrine of St Thomas à Becket, made famous by Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. 
  • Modern buildings surrounded by open green spaces, courtyards, gardens, ponds and woodland, and the view across Canterbury and the Stour valley all help to make Kent an attractive and friendly campus.
  • The campus is self-contained, meaning that you are usually within walking distance of a wide variety of entertainment and dining, a library, banks, shops, public transportation, a medical centre, and launderettes.
  • Students live in university residence halls or student apartments in Park Wood, a 10-minute walk from the academic buildings. 
Program Summary: 

The KU Great Britain Direct Exchange Program (GBDX) is designed to stimulate and enrich the intellectual development of KU students through a direct experience in the British academic and cultural environment, promoting friendship with Great Britain and broadening international horizons. To realize this mission, KU has signed direct exchange agreements with ten universities in Great Britain, which allow KU students to study for a semester or year abroad at greatly reduced costs. In exchange, British students from these same universities will study for a semester or year at KU.

With the exception of the Leicester program, a student participating in the Great Britain Direct Exchange may be one of a small number of KU students, or the only KU student, at a particular site. An international office is available at each site to provide student support.

Location: 

Canterbury is a small city with a warm and friendly atmosphere. In medieval times it was a center for pilgrimage to the shrine of St Thomas à Becket, made famous by Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The city centre shows much of its medieval history in ancient streets and buildings. Canterbury today has a thriving cosmopolitan atmosphere.  It is located just 56 miles from London, a one-hour train trip. English Channel ports are less than 20 miles away, and the Eurostar Terminal at Ashford, with connections to the Channel Tunnel with service to Brussels and Paris, is just a 20-minute train trip.

The University of Kent is built on 300 acres of parkland overlooking Canterbury. It was founded in 1965 and is still growing and evolving. Modern buildings surrounded by open green spaces, courtyards, gardens, ponds and woodland, and the view across Canterbury and the Stour valley all help to make Kent an attractive and friendly campus.

The campus is self-contained, meaning that you are usually within walking distance of a wide variety of entertainment and dining, a library, banks, shops, public transportation, a medical centre, and launderettes. Canterbury city centre is only 20 minutes walk away, or on a direct bus route.

Academic Information: 

Students may earn up to 30 hours of KU credit for the year or 15 credits for a semester. Most disciplines are offered in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Business. Students are encouraged to visit Kent's website to determine if the university offers a good selection of courses to meet specific graduation requirements.

Courses and grades will be posted as KU equivalents on your KU transcript and grades will figure into your KU GPA. The relevant KU academic department will make the final decision regarding posting of credit and grades, and their application toward graduation.
