The UK is a popular place to study, and KBS is particularly well-located in South-East England with courses being delivered at both the Canterbury and Medway campuses.

Canterbury is well-known as a city-break destination for art, culture, history, restaurants and night-life. The campus itself is set in woodlands and is within walking distance from Canterbury city centre. Canterbury is 56 minutes by train to London, and 2.5 hours to Paris. Public transport is easily available and reliable.

Study in our state-of-the-art building: Sibson. With dedicated teaching and learning spaces and modern social and breakout areas, Sibson encapsulates KBS academic values and identity. View the Sibson building virtual tour here.

The Medway campus at Chatham Maritime is a vibrant mixture of modern and historic buildings with excellent facilities. A free Wi-Fi enabled shuttle bus runs regularly between the Canterbury and Medway campuses during term time. Also, the ports of Dover, Ramsgate and the Channel Tunnel are all about an hour’s drive away, and London is 45 minutes away by train.

In Medway, KBS occupies the ‘Sail and Colour Loft’. Here, modern learning facilities feature within an iconic historic building forming inspiring learning spaces. View the Sail and Colour Loft building virtual tour here.
