Student City guide: Canterbury

Canterbury is the birthplace of Christopher Marlowe, murder site of Thomas Becket and home to the Archbishop - along with well over 30,000 students across the city’s four universities (The University of Kent, Canterbury Christchurch University, the University College for the Creative Arts and The Girne American Uniiversity). This popular tourist destination in Kent is also a student haven with its bars, restaurants, attractions and a truly exquisite cathedral to graduate in.
