MSc in Organisational and Business Psychology - Batch of 2023
4
Insider's Perspective: A comprehensive course work with best professors.
Tips: The university is based in a small town, which is relatively quiet and slow, especially during the winter. Ideally, you join activity-oriented or cultural societies or clubs from the very beginning to have a decent social circle. Overall, I was satisfied with my course, adequate challenges to upskill my knowledge and mentored by some of the best professors.
Likes (Part time work): Part-time work is easier to find off campus than on campus. The hourly pay ranges from GBP 8-11/ hour. Managing part-time work with academics can be exhausting, however, if planned well, it can be managed. I would recommend familiarizing yourself with the academic expectations of your course before seeking part-time opportunities, to realistically evaluate how much time you can dedicate outside of your studies.
Dislikes (Value for money): The tuition fee for this course is relatively lower at the University of Kent compared to many other universities. The course is holistic and provides significant industry exposure which justifies the tuition fee. The most interesting parts of my degree include interacting with actual companies and understanding their people-function roles, also contributing to them through projects assigned as a part of training in the modules.

Master of Business Administration (MBA) - Batch of 2024
3.4
Triple crown accredited. Worth choosing! Hectic MBA program.
Tips: The staff and people in the university are very welcoming and kind! So far, it's been a great experience. The programme is very hectic and involves 9-5 classes every alternative week. The off week will be intense with assignments and other work. Working part-time with this programme is very challenging so better to avoid depending on part-time income. The course is very theoretical, it's up to you to learn new skills relevant to current market trends. I have received an MBA women in leadership scholarship from the university worth 25% of the tuition fee waiver. The university has many other scholarships for postgrads. It's a decent university to study in.
Likes (Safety): So far it's been the safest place. I live on campus and we go for a walk even at night anytime for instance at 3 AM and it is still safe. The campus has their own safe zone app for emergencies. It's pretty handy and easy to reach out for help. We go to the city at night, it's not crowded and calm most of the time yet I feel safe here. People are sweet and greet each other.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There are very few options in vegetarian. Usually in any cafes, it's the same veg sandwich, mashed potato or wrap. No varieties on campus for Indian dishes in cafes or restaurants. Most restaurants serve British food with salad, sandwiches, burgers and plain food.
