at our Open Days
Kent is committed to changing the world for the better. We believe that our students and our research have the potential to make a real difference to people's lives. That's why we work hard to ensure that ambitious, talented individuals can study here, regardless of their background. We also invest in research that is tackling pressing global issues such as poverty, the refugee crisis, and the right to food.
But we can't do this alone. We need your help to support scholarships, projects and research programmes that will change lives for the better.
For some students financial support can mean the difference between going to university and not. For many, it provides an opportunity to succeed and even excel. You can help students of the future by leaving a gift in your will.
We've partnered with expert will writers, the Guardian Angel, to offer you the chance to write your will for free today. With their help, you can make sure that your family is protected and provided for at a time when they will need it most and you'll also have the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of students at Kent.
Making a legacy bequest enables the gift of education to be passed on to others.
The Docking Station is a unique legacy project in the heart of Medway with a vision to become a game-changing space for the cultural and creative industries in Kent and a world-leading research centre for advanced technology development.
This creative centre will embrace and inspire communities in Kent and play a key role in the cultural regeneration of Medway. Significant public funding has already been committed, including support from Arts Council England, Department of Levelling Up Housing and Communities; and National Lottery Heritage Fund.
We are now reaching out to our supporters, partners and communities to realise the full vision.
