We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The University of Kent, ‘the UK’s European university,’ is currently expanding programmes at our newest European centre in Rome. Programmes are tailored to take full advantage of their particular locations and Rome’s wealth of history, architecture, and art offer students a unique opportunity to have direct access to archaeological sites, museums, and galleries.
Students begin their one-year MA in the world heritage city of Canterbury and relocate in the spring term to The American University of Rome, where the Kent programmes are hosted at their lovely campus atop the Janiculum Hill. While enjoying the benefits of a traditional campus and university facilities in Rome, students will have the additional resources of Rome’s specialized and extensive libraries.
The programmes are taught entirely in English, with the possibility to develop language skills in Latin, Greek, and Italian during both the autumn term in Canterbury, and the spring term in Rome. Visits to sites in Rome are included in all core modules and assessments reflect the additional resources available to Kent students in Rome. Kent staff, leading authorities in their fields, are known for their research-led teaching which is further enhanced by the cultural, linguistic and experiential immersion in Rome.
Kent attracts ambitious and cultured students from all over the world creating a vibrant post-graduate community. Kent MA students in Rome earn an internationally respected UK degree which demonstrates to future employers the ability to manage the additional pressure of transferring to and studying in another country. Our MA programmes include much scope for vocational training, skills acquisition and guided project work, often with use of our extensive facilities. These aspects of our programmes have been praised by external assessors in recent years.
Recent graduates have progressed to careers in a wide range of related professional and leadership areas, including national and local museums, teaching and senior roles with archaeological organisations, museums, and galleries. A large proportion of completing master’s students have progressed onto PhD study.
"What could be nicer than to live in Rome for three months and study the city’s art and architecture with inspiring teaching in English, while also able to immerse yourself in the pleasures of Italy and discover the dynamic cultural life of Rome. It’s a life-changing opportunity designed to stimulate the senses and boost your career prospects at the same time" ~ Prof Tom Henr, Academic Director, University of Kent, Rome
