The University of Kent is outward looking and forward-thinking, with academic staff who are leaders in their field, outstanding facilities and award-winning student support. Our programmes are designed to help you sharpen your focus and take a step up in your career.
Kent is known for the quality of its teaching, gold-rated in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework, and for the interdisciplinary nature of its programmes and research. We understand that postgraduate students need flexibility, so many of our taught and all of our research degrees offer September or January starts. We also offer distance-learning options and short courses. We also have a range of Conversion Master’s Programmes where you can learn new skills in a different discipline.
We offer a range of funding opportunities, including taught and research student scholarships, location-specific awards, sport and music scholarships, and funding specifically for students who pay overseas fees. We also have doctoral training partnerships with several bodies, with access to a range of funding, including the UK Research Councils.
Kent is a top 20 research institution. Our academics are involved in research that could lead to new approaches to cancer treatment; end plastic pollution; improve UK productivity; and create original forms of poetry and creative writing. Join a community that’s already shaping tomorrow’s world.
Our Graduate and Researcher College helps to create a caring, stimulating intellectual and social environment. We offer over 300 training sessions annually to help you develop a wide range of skills that will prepare you for your place in the professional world.
In a competitive market, a postgraduate qualification from Kent can help you to get into your favoured profession, move on in your career or change direction. Alongside the support you receive from academic staff, our Careers and Advisory Service provides expert advice and can help you prepare for interviews and assessment days.
