Your learning environment

Specialist, modern facilities

Our new Medical School will benefit from significant investment into modern, purpose-built facilities to develop dedicated and bespoke teaching and learning environments on both university campuses. You will have access to lecture theatres, large teaching rooms, PC suites, an anatomy learning centre, clinical skills facilities, and simulation suites.

Libraries and resources

Both universities are proud of their excellent libraries. You will have full access to both libraries to support your studies, as well as using resources at local NHS providers. Both libraries have extended opening hours and house a wide range of print and electronic materials. They have spaces for individual and collaborative study, computer suites and social spaces. A dedicated KMMS librarian and library teams at both universities will support you to use the libraries for your learning. They will also help you to develop your digital capabilities and your scholarly skills.

Learning support

Support for disabilities (including autism, mental health issues, long-term health conditions and specific learning difficulties eg, dyslexia, dyspraxia) will be provided by the University of Kent Student Support and Wellbeing team. A Disability Adviser, SpLD Adviser or Mental Health/Wellbeing Adviser will meet with you to discuss your requirements, and will be your named contact. The adviser will determine reasonable teaching/exam adjustments to be made for learners with disabilities, in line with the Equality Act 2010.
