About the Scholarship Provider:

Formerly known as the Institution of Kent at Canterbury, the Institution of Kent is a prestigious public research university in the county of Kent, England. University of Beloff-Schuman Plate Glass was founded in 1965, hence it is sometimes called a university named after Beloff’s plate glass. In 1960, proponents of what would become the University of Kent submitted a proposal to the University Grants Committee requesting funding to establish a university in the city of Canterbury. The proposed institution would be known as Kent State University. After the design was approved in 1962, an Interim Committee was formed, and the school was subsequently contacted. The institute was granted a Royal Charter in 1965. When classes began earlier this year, there were just 500 students enrolled and 150 faculty and staff members on staff. Princess Marina, the Duchess of Kent, will serve as the institution’s first chancellor. The time and place for this appointment have been set.


The current organizational structure includes not only the six colleges already present, but also three academic centers and a total of eighteen academic schools. Twice in the past eleven years, the university has been honored with the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education. The institution of higher learning has three campuses in the county of Kent. The Canterbury Campus, which is located in Parkland, is home to six different colleges as well as the Gulbenkian Arts Centre, Templeman Library, and the Mandela Building. The 300-acre campus is conveniently located close to public transportation that can take students into either Manhattan or London in a matter of minutes. The services it provides to students, both in the classroom and in the dining hall, are unparalleled. Tonbridge welcomed the first students to the School of Continuing Education when it opened in 1982. The Kent Innovation & Enterprise Center and the Kent Business School are two of its current partners.

You may find the Medway Campus not far from both Chatham and Rochester. There was a naval base there in the past. A fence divides the Naval Dockyard’s Pembroke and Chatham campuses. Pembroke houses the Drill Hall Library, the professional practice center, the journalism center, the school of sport and exercise sciences, the student social space known as the Student Hub, and the Medway campuses of the schools of social policy, sociology and social research, and computing. Both the Centre for Music and Audio Technology and the Medway campus of Kent Business School may be found in the Dockyard. Athens, Paris, Brussels, and Rome are just some of the European cities where the group has set up shop. Economics, law, journalism, medicine, anthropology, architecture, environmental studies, the arts, the media, English, philosophy, the social sciences, history, music, science, pharmacy, finance, sports medicine, and the law are just some of the areas covered by the institution’s graduate and undergraduate degree programs.


The university has an enrollment of around 20,100 students and a faculty of around 2,000. International students account for sixteen percent of the entire student body. At this school, there is one professor for every twelve undergraduates. During the 2015-2016 school year, more than 6,700 students and 132 different businesses participated in the university’s nationally acclaimed Employability Points program. There are 388 unique types of international organizations with which the University of Kent has partnered. They have 160,000 alums from 180 countries, and many prominent people are among them. Known for his work in journalism, fiction, and television hosting, Gavin William James Esler is a household name.

Kazuo Ishiguro is the author of novels, short stories, and scripts. British actor Tom Wilkinson has been in films including “Michael Clayton” and “In the Bedroom.” British actor, comedian, and writer Alan Davies is best known for playing the title character in the BBC mystery series Jonathan Creek. Both of David Mitchell’s novels, Cloud Atlas and number9dream, were recommended for the Booker Prize. Paul Telfer is a seasoned performer best known for his portrayal of Xander Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives. Many more influential figures in society also graduated from this university.
