Kent equips you with essential skills to give you a competitive advantage when it comes to getting a job.
As well as providing a first-rate academic experience, we want you to be in a good position to face the demands of a tough global economic environment. We are consistently in the top 20 for graduate starting salaries. We provide a Careers and Employability Service and pride ourselves on the assistance we give our students to develop their personal and transferable skills.
The majority of our degrees offer the opportunity of a term or year abroad which provides valuable experiences and opportunities to develop a global perspective. In addition, Kent Counts, our Nuffield Q-Step Centre, enables our students to gain the statistical skills demanded by many of today’s employers.
Many of our programmes incorporate placements within companies, facilitated by our global partnerships, contacts within our international alumni network or through our Student Enterprise Scheme. We also run a nationally recognised Employability Points scheme, which rewards student engagement in extra-curricular activities that develop and enhance transferable and life skills.
The University is committed to enhancing the employability of all our students, to enable you to flourish in a competitive, fast-moving, knowledge-based economy.
Kent encourages students to develop skills that are valued by prospective employers.
