Program Description: Studying at Kent, one of the UK's top 20 universities, expands your horizons, enhances your studies and gives you the chance to gain insight into another culture. As well as attending lectures, you also take part in seminars (small groups that encourage informal discussion).

Canterbury is a beautiful city with a rich heritage and vibrant culture. Home to the world-famous Canterbury Cathedral, the city attracts millions of tourists every year. The city is less than an hour from London and also within easy reach of continental Europe.

Course Information: University of Kent divides its subject areas into three faculties: Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences. One of the University’s distinctive characteristics is its emphasis on interdisciplinary studies, usually within faculties, though some teaching and research crosses faculty boundaries. Interdisciplinary study is highly encouraged and students may choose a program that draws on different subject areas. Applicants are advised to select a program that forms a coherent ‘package’, rather than a group of modules chosen at random.
