Affiliations[edit]

I have removed BCS and IET from the list of affiliations. I'm sure they were included in good faith, but these are actually just accreditations available to students on certain degree programmes. See http://www.kent.ac.uk/teaching/documents/quality-assurance/psrb/psrb_accreditations.pdf for a full list of such accreditations. If some are to be included, then all should be - and that would seem inappropriate. Eebkent (talk) 22:57, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Shift from Multi-discipinary curricula to more specialist teaching[edit]

Added material to expand account of why Kent shifted from a multi-discipinary curricula to more specialist teaching from 1990, which at the time was driven very much by changes in UFC/HEFCE policy as a result of government policy than specific problems with the curricular at the time. I have tried to be non POV regarding this; I had, after all, undermined the previous structure by adding two Part I modules to our curriculum. But it is pretty clear to me that these changes would likely never have occurred without government policy regarding subject pricing. ~~Michael Fischer~~ (talk) 08:27, 19 October 2013 (UTC) .

Universities central at Women in Red on IWD during March 2017[edit]

Info and invitation. Women in Red has a drive during March to create and improve articles on women alumni of universities. International Women's Day is on March 8th and we invite others to mirror the event in the UK in Cambridge. Please sign up or ask for help at Women in Red. Hope you can make it. We have tools that will allow you to find missing women alumni from any other university. We are interested in editors who want to work in any language.
