Students are invited to join academic staff and undergraduate students from Kent Law School at the University of Kent for a Virtual Open Day, live streamed on YouTube this Saturday at 1pm.  To access the event, please click here:
Kent Law School Virtual Open Day 
The event should be of interest to any students who are considering studying Law at university
, as viewers will get to hear about the content and structure of an undergraduate law degree and hear the experience of current students. We are also encouraging viewers to get involved by asking their own questions of the Law School lecturers and students through the live chat that will be accompanying the event.

Kent Law School is highly ranked and regarded law school, based within the 300 acre Canterbury campus of the University of Kent. Kent is ranked in the top 20 for law in each of the three major UK league tables, as well as 51st in the world for law in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020 by Subject. We have a multi-award winning pro-bono Law Clinic which enables students to help assist real clients under the supervision of qualified lawyers, and a critical approach to law which encourages students to discuss and debate the role and impact of law, enhancing an already fascinating subject and developing a wealth of skills to help students succeed in their future careers.

Please feel welcome to contact me if you or your students have any questions about the Virtual Open Day, or about studying Law at the University of Kent.


23rd September 2019:

“This year UKC has developed a first-of-its-kind online adventure game that simulates all the key elements of gaining a degree at Kent called the One Hour Degree. It is a narrative based game that allows players to test out decisions at University and see what the effects of those decisions might be.

The game was developed after significant research showed that many students were making choices early on in their student journeys that had a detrimental impact on their studies. Many of these students were high achievers who had performed extremely well in a school environment but had struggled to transition to university life and were not accustomed to asking for assistance or seeking out new resources that would help them.

The One Hour Degree game was released 3 weeks ago and has already been played over 3,000 times in nearly 90 countries. I am hoping that, by sharing it with school students who are currently considering their Higher Education options, it will help many more.The game can be started by clicking this link, it does not require a login and therefore can be played by anyone anywhere in the world (display is best in Google Chrome).”

The King’s School will be hosting a Study in Canada Fair on Monday 30th September at 7.30pm and they would like to invite our Year 11 and Sixth Form students to join them.
This is a fantastic opportunity for students to discuss their higher education options for studying in Canada with experts from a select group of top-quality Canadian institutions. Even if students aren’t sure about their next steps, they would benefit from finding out more about the exciting opportunities available to them.
Canada is internationally recognised for its competency-based teaching approach that prepares students to be productive in the workplace immediately after graduation. It also offers a fantastic post-study work visa programme, which allows students to stay in the country should they wish to work or travel in Canada.
The following universities will be present:
• Acadia University • Ryerson University
• Bishop’s University • University of British Columbia
• Carleton University • University of Guelph
• Centennial College • University of Toronto
• Concordia University • University of Waterloo
• Queen’s University
If you would like to attend, please email Mrs Ireland.

Any Students in Year 12 or 13 who are interested in English language, modern or ancient languages, or a related subject, there is an opportunity to undertake work experience with Dr Laura Bailey in the School of European Culture and Languages at the University of Kent. Students would undertake work independently at the Canterbury campus, under the supervision of Dr Bailey.
Please contact Mrs Ireland for any further information.
