The friends that you will make on your course are very likely to have similar interests and ambitions.
For example, if you study an Art course, you will be surrounded by creative people who enjoy days out at galleries. If you study a Sports course, you may find that the friends you make are more energetic and interested in exercise.
This can benefit you as you will feel happier and more settled with a friendship group who enjoy doing the same things as you!
The great thing about coming to study in a different place is having the chance to start afresh and meet brand new people from different walks of life.
Our students come from all over Kent to study at College, so this is a really great opportunity to meet people that live further afield from you, and with different backgrounds.
There are so many different things you can do outside of your course at College, which not only look great on your CV for future job applications, but can enable you to meet friends who do not necessarily study the same course as you.
You will have the chance to apply to work as a Student Ambassador, representing the College at events and working with students from different courses, all while earning money.
Canterbury College has a thriving Students’ Union with opportunities to take on roles of responsibility, such as the SU President and Student Officer roles, which will allow you to work with the student body in a wide variety of exciting ways, introducing you to new people and developing your skills.
Throughout your time at College, you will get to take part in many different extra-curricular activities that will provide you with the opportunity to strengthen your new-found friendships.
During Community Weeks you will take part in Social Action with the friends on your course, so you can work together to make a positive difference in the local community.
External trips and residential visits are offered at College too, which is also a great opportunity to spend some time outside of College with your coursemates.
