The University has a well established series of Open Lectures that has been running for over 40 years. They are hugely popular, cover a wide range of topics and are delivered by respected academics, politicians and other professionals. Lectures are free, open to all and no booking is required.
The Colleges run an exciting programme of events including:
- Art exhibitions
- Grass roots lectures
- Musical recitals

Language Express is a programme of World Language learning opportunities delivered through the Centre for English and World Languages.
We currently offer an exciting range of ten languages in Canterbury and French in Medway. From May 2012 we will also be running Language Express Bitesize.
If you want to extend your knowledge of a particular subject, or are simply curious to know more, a short course is a good choice for you. The short course programme is available at our Tonbridge centre during weekdays and evenings as well as some Saturdays.
The programme includes lectures, study days and short courses of up to 12 weeks. Subjects vary but may include:
- Art History
- Creative Writing
As these courses allow you to spend time exploring a subject, they are an ideal starting point before making a decision to study for a credit-bearing certificate or degree.
