A tour of the Canterbury Campus in 2012 with Graduate Trainees

If you graduated a long while ago, this video gives a great sense of how large areas of the campus look now. Pay attention to the cafe area outside the Bookshop at 2.58 in the video; you might recognise that this was where the Library used to be sited, while the computer room shown at 5.13 was once part of a flat inhabited by staff. However even for more recent graduates it will still be clear that just since 2012, there have been some notable changes.
