About us

MidKent College is one of the biggest and best providers of further and higher education in the South East, offering an extensive range of study programmes, courses and apprenticeships.

Our £86 million Medway Campus in Gillingham – which opened in September 2009 – boasts some of the best vocational training facilities in the country. Our Maidstone Campus received a £20 million redevelopment in 2013 to provide fantastic facilities and contemporary, modern workshops and classrooms. As part of this redevelopment, we have created a higher skills centre for professional and higher education courses.

    • Set in the Oakwood Park complex, MidKent College's Maidstone Campus provides a pleasant learning environment for students. The site houses a range of quality workshops – including those for Bricklaying, Carpentry, Motor Vehicle and Welding – as well as a large learning resource centre, refectory and welcoming social zone.

      In 2012 major redevelopment work costing a total of £25 million started at the Maidstone Campus, with new state-of-the-art facilities expected to be open by December 2013.

      As part of the rebuild MidKent College has purchased the University for the Creative Arts' Maidstone campus, which is also based at Oakwood Park and now houses the majority of the College's higher education courses.
