Student Programs and Activities
Kent holds many extracurricular events and activities for students all throughout the year. The purpose of these is to increase engagement and collegiality amongst the student cohort, help students adjust to studying and life in Australia and to provide opportunities for students to build on their own professional skills ready for the workplace.
Students can email LEAD.Syd@kent.staging-sites.com.au or LEAD.Melb@kent.staging-sites.com.au for more information or to get involved. Kent offers the following activities and programs to our students:
Leadership, Experience and Development (LEAD) Program
Students will receive certificates for participation in key activities and events throughout the year. All students who accumulate 100 points or more over the year will be awarded with a Kent LEAD Program certificate for their portfolios. The student who accumulates the highest number of points will be awarded the Kent LEAD Ambassador of the year certificate and trophy and will be nominated by Kent to enter into the City of Sydney International Student of the Year Award competition. The Kent LEAD Ambassador of the Year will also receive significant media coverage through social platforms, website, YouTube and newsletters. If you are interested in volunteering for our LEAD program, email LEAD for further information.
Student Representative Group (SRG)
Kent has a Student Representative Group which is made up of students in both the Sydney and Melbourne campuses who meet independently throughout the year to discuss key topics raised by Kent and student lead ideas and concerns. Students who are interested in joining this group as a way to provide structured and ongoing feedback on both academic and out of class experiences at Kent should email LEAD for further information.
Keeping healthy and playing sports is a great way to make new friends and enjoy student life while at Kent. Opportunities and competitions are held throughout the year in sports such as basketball, soccer, cricket, netball and table tennis. Sporting events, activities and opportunities will be communicated through Kent social media platforms, the Kent Student Newsletter, campus noticeboards and emails.
