And this is it. The three years at Kent came to an end and my study was crowned with beautiful graduation ceremony. Let's look at some pics.

 Plenty of selfies is a must! Of course. ˇˇ^^

At the beginning of the day, you have to go collect gowns and hats and try them on if they fit. Everyone is so nice and helpful.
 And then when everything is ready and the time comes, everyone starts moving towards the Cathedral. Family and friends had to wait in this long queue to get in.

While us graduates, we wait at the different exit which means again time for more pics.

 And then when all the family&friends are seated, we are festively taken to the Canterbury Cathedral and the ceremony can begin. The views are stunning.

 And then when it is all done, we all are happy and festive and I believe proud of ourselves! We all worked really hard to get our degrees.

 Tossing the hat can be a challenge :)

 Overall, the experience was amazing. I have been to a couple of graduations at different universities and honestly speaking, the atmosphere and the sheer magnificence of the Cathedral is second to none. Kent graduates are very lucky to have their ceremonies in Canterbury Cathedral.
We all were amazed and emotional about the whole experience and the University worked really hard to make that moment extra special for us. 

It is a bitter-sweet post for me because it means my study at Kent is finished but looking back, these three years studying at Kent were the best years of my life. I learnt so much, not just about Politics&IR but also about life and people and hopefully how to be a better person. I met wonderful&intelligent people from all over the world and made some beautiful friends. 

I will always have Kent in my heart.

Another academic year is finishing and there has been some good news regarding university's rankings. 
Kent has always been among the best universities but within the last three years it climbed even further on the League Tables. 
For example on the Guardian League Table, Kent has moved from number 20 to 16.
The school where I study (school of Politics and International Relations) did extremely well, ts has been ranked 10th in the country for Politics.
The league table rankings found the School above a number of Russell Group universities including Bristol, King’s College London and the LSE. 

Furthermore, Kent also places itself high in other subjects such as Law or Journalism (it is number 1 for Journalism)

Really proud to be studying at Kent!

Here it is ... that time of the year again. Exam period.

So instead of laying on the grass and getting some tan..

This becomes our "home" for a few weeks now.

We have to do what we have to do. Exam period means a lot of revisions, studying and trying to make sense of all the different modules and topics we were taught about.
 each one of us gets an exam timetable like this one ^^where we can see how many exams we have, when and where they take place

the exams usually take place in halls like this one ˇˇ
it can be a bit daunting, especially if you are not used to this kind of examination (I had never done exams like this before I came to Kent) but you get used to it pretty quickly and you will appreciate the high level of organisation and omnipresent help from the staff 

But you cannot avoid the revision. Good preparation is key. 
At least... there is the library cafe :)

 But don't worry, there is always time to switch off for a while and relax ... that being watching your favourite series, going for a walk or breaking some sweat in the university gym.

Plus, there is a lot of support and both the teaching and administrative staff are always ready to help you. The Kent Union also provides great de-stress programme with different events. Check out Kent Facebook page here.

If you have any questions about exams or anything else, please, do not hesitate to ask.

You should definitely read this article here about 17 reasons why the Kent Uni is the best in the UK.
I agree with all of them. In the next post I will write about more reasons why to study at Kent.

If you are a foodie and love food as much as I do, you will appreciate the wide variety of places to eat or just have a cup of tea/coffee on the campus.

 First one is lovely fish&chips. In my opinion, the best on campus from Gulbenkian. They make really nice food and you can choose from big portions like this one or small like a soup of the day.

 Next place is Origins. They mainly focus on tex-mex cuisine. So if you have cravings for spicy fajitas or a nice burger. Origins is a place to be!

Pulled pork burger in Dolce Vita. Personally, my top favourite place to eat overall. They recently changed their menu and it is definitely worth a visit. (My beloved dish is Oven-roasted tilapia.)

Rutherford dining hall is a traditional cafeteria-style outlet. Serving breakfasts, lunch and dinners. Cheap and a lot to choose from. 

Library Cafe is a life saver when you need a quick shot of caffeine, something sweet or a sandwich. Keeps us going during the long days in the library. 

 There are also special occasions during which you can get your hands on some lovely food. For example, during the last year Worldfest.

 I am also more than pleased that the food revolution finally arrived to our uni. The various food stalls have become a distinctive addition to our diverse student life. I just love them!

 This is a serious love for thai food!

 Well, don't this lovely food just make sometimes tough student life so much better?
