The University works closely with its partner further education colleges to offer a range of vocationally related higher education qualifications. These programmes are designed to give students an understanding of the world of work and help them to develop a broad range of job-related skills. We also have our own centre in Tonbridge which offers specialist part-time education.
MidKent College has around 10,000 students enrolled on courses in Medway and Maidstone, and offers an excellent entry route for students who want to progress to degree courses at the University of Kent. Thanks to the College's close links with employers and professional bodies, its courses remain firmly in touch with trends in the workplace and provide an appropriate point from which you can launch either into university or your chosen career.
Direct progression links mean that MidKent College students can move on from a two-year HND or foundation degree to the first, second or third year of a related degree programme at the University of Kent. In doing so, you can gain both the academic award of a degree and the vocational experience of an HND or foundation degree.
MidKent College has an impressive array of learning resources, social facilities and dedicated support services available on demand, which help to ensure that you get the most from your learning experience. The College is a dynamic and dedicated education provider, offering effective teaching in a mature and encouraging environment.
