The University of Kent is a place where people can sharpen their focus with postgraduate study.
It is known as the UK’s European university and has postgraduate centres in Brussels and Paris, as well as two UK campuses in Canterbury and Medway.
As a postgraduate, students will have the opportunity to study full or part-time on the majority of programmes offered in one of Kent’s European centres. Kent offer postgraduate students flexibility, with many of their taught and all of their research degrees offering both September and January start dates. They also offer distance-learning options and short courses.
The University of Kent offers a range of Conversion Master’s Programmes where students can learn new skills, improve their job prospects and prepare themselves for a career in a different discipline.
The university is made up of six divisions, comprising academic schools and centres:
Arts and Humanities: Kent School of Architecture and Planning, School of Arts, School of English, School of European Culture and Languages, School of History, Centre for Music and Audio Technology
Natural Sciences: School of Biosciences, School of Physical Sciences, School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, Medway School of Pharmacy, Kent and Medway Medical School
Computing, Engineering and Mathematical Sciences: School of Computing, School of Engineering and Digital Arts, School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science
Kent Business School
Human and Social Sciences: School of Anthropology and Conservation, School of Economics, School of Politics and International Relations, School of Psychology
Law, Society and Social Justice: Kent Law School, School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, Centre for Journalism
In addition to the programmes in the UK, a number of the postgraduate degrees are offered with either a full year or with a term in one of the European sites, meaning students could be spending some of their time in Paris or Brussels. The programmes based at the European sites are taught in English.
Students will be assessed through coursework and exams, with a number of programmes requiring them to write up a dissertation during the final part of the year.
Research degrees are also available to study abroad, where extensive learning facilities will be available to support students, as well as regular study workshops and a supervisor.
All UK postgraduate students have access to the Graduate School, offering study support, workshops and social events. There is also the option to study on a part-time basis, or online through a distance learning course.
