Why choose North Kent College for Higher Education:

Study Locally

If you live in Kent or South East London, we're really easy to reach via car or public transport, meaning that you can save money on university accommodation costs and travel. Plus, you'll have more time work and study as well as maintain your current personal lifestyle.

From £5,950

Our undergraduate programmes start from just £5,950 and we offer you the same standard of education at a substantially lower cost than university!

Flexible Entry Criteria

Having the required entry grades is beneficial, especially for those who have just finished college or sixth-form. However, your application is encouraged if you are a mature student (aged 21 and over), without the required entry grades, but with relevant industry experience.

Dedicated Higher Education Centre

We have a dedicated Higher Education Centre at our Dartford Campus for our Access and Higher Education students. The Higher Education Centre is a great place to study and meet other students on different undergraduate programmes. 

Supportive Environment

Our students appreciate the level of support that is available to them from their lecturers and all staff on campus. We’re smaller than most universities, which means better support for you.

Discounted Travel

We have teamed up with Arriva buses, to offer you 10% off your travel to the campuses. Plus, if you live in the London boroughs, you can get up to 30% off your travel with a Student Oyster Card and Dartford Station is now in the Oyster Card area in zone 8.

FREE Shuttle Bus to the Dartford Campus

If you drive, we have loads of free parking. If you don’t, we have a FREE Shuttle Bus, which regularly runs from Dartford Station and Leyton Cross to our Dartford campus.
