MA students split their year between Canterbury and Paris. You spend the autumn term in Canterbury, where you choose two modules. You then spend the spring term in Paris, where you are based at our teaching and research centre in Montparnasse. During that term, you take modules taught by staff from the University of Kent and guest lecturers, thus ensuring consistent academic standards and assessment throughout the year.
Modules are designed to be relevant to the experience of living and studying in Paris. You are encouraged to make use of Paris's cultural resources and to integrate these into your studies.
