The Kent at Paris programme is an ideal opportunity to immerse myself in French culture and improve my French language skills, all while studying French and European Literature - how inspiring!

MA Comparative Literature

What attracted you to Kent?

I had a long-standing interest in cinema and was keen to study film at a UK institution. In my home country of Japan, cinema as an academic discipline has yet to be fully established - very few universities there have designated Film Studies departments.

The University of Kent at Paris programme was the reason I was attracted to Kent more than to any other UK university. To be able to live and study in two of Europe's most inspiring and historic cities has been a truly unique and wonderful experience. Paris has been closely associated with cinema since the screening of the first film by the Lumière brothers in 1895. The programme also gave me the chance to study cinema in the capital of film culture without the need to master French.

What was the course like?

I thoroughly enjoyed and learned a lot from the terms I spent in Canterbury and Paris. The Canterbury-based modules focused on film history and film theory, and I gained an extensive training in research and analytical skills. In Paris, I took one module from Film Studies and another from Comparative Literature. Both modules related directly to Paris: Film and Modernity provided a good overview of the history of French cinema while the Diaspora and Exiled module gave me an excellent insight into the work of exile writers in Paris.

What about the teaching?

I liked the fact that the teaching often involved discussion and presentation-based seminars. The tutors made sure that everyone participated in the discussions and we were often given work to complete in pairs and in groups. I was a rather shy student, but I learned to communicate my ideas to others in a clear and accurate way.

The experience of writing the dissertation enabled me to improve my research skills as well as writing skills. I also attended writing workshops for postgraduates students - I found these particularly useful since English is not my first language.
