You can apply for a Kent higher degree, postgraduate diploma, graduate diploma or certificate online. Simply look up the course that you want to apply for using our course finder.
Then click on the 'apply' tab and select the programme you wish to study.
You will then be taken to an online application form which will guide you through the application process.
There is no fixed closing deadline for applications to most postgraduate taught degrees including taught Master's degrees. However, we strongly recommend that you apply as soon as possible and no later than three months before your intended start date. Most coursework degrees begin in September although some, most notably those taught in Brussels, may offer the opportunity to start in January.
If you wish to apply for a research programme, it is strongly recommended that you contact the Director of Graduate Studies in the school where you wish to pursue your studies. If you already know the member of staff you wish to supervise your project, you should contact him or her directly. Academic staff welcome direct contact with potential students as it allows them the opportunity to discuss your research proposal.
This is an important aspect of the application process as the University must be assured that it can provide a suitable programme of training and research support, a supervisor who has the requisite expertise, and suitable facilities and equipment where appropriate.
The University must also be satisfied that you have the necessary qualifications and experience. This early discussion also allows you and the Director of Graduate Studies/your potential supervisor to explore funding opportunities.
There is no fixed closing deadline for applications to research degrees but all eligible applications submitted by 31st January 2014 will be considered for funding. We strongly recommend that you apply as soon as possible and no later than three months before your intended start date. While research degree registration can begin at the start of any month, it is recommended that you begin in either September or January to take advantage of the University’s induction programme.
If you wish to apply for campus accommodation, you need to have received an offer for a place of study and make an online application for accommodation by 31 July 2014. You will be sent further details if you are offered a place.
