“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 enjoyed 67 sports clubs and 189 societies, and there were 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 and you were in that first student intake, what would you start and why?”
Applicants are to save the essay as a word document. At the top of the document, please include The essay title, your full name, and your University of Kent identification number.
