Study abroad summary
This year has really flown by. I have made some fantastic lifelong friends and studying here has really been a wonderful, cultural experience – I cannot believe my year abroad is nearly over.
The University offers exchange opportunities across of a wide range of:
- Four-year single honours
with a study abroad element including some programmes that offer the opportunity to study at a university where the teaching takes place in English.
More information on language requirements.
- Joint honours degrees with a language
where you study a European language and culture alongside another academic subject.You may also take a joint honours degree in two languages, such as French and Italian.The languages are:
- Spanish (Hispanic Studies)
- Joint honours degrees in Humanities
It is now possible for joint honours Humanities students to go on a Year Abroad. For further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Term abroad (Humanities)
If you are a single OR joint honours Humanities student, for whom the year abroad is not obligatory, a term abroad may be possible. For further information please email email@example.com.
Working abroad summary
Language students and students studying Politics and International Relations often have the opportunity to take a work placement abroad (rather than study abroad). The most common option for language students is to work as a teaching assistant but other positions are also possible, subject to the approval of your academic school.
Students taking a Year in Industry may also be able to gain a placement outside the UK. Your placement advisor will be able to give you information on the possibilities. For example, Kent has strong links with Sun Microsystems in the USA which means that every year several of our Computer Science students spend their placement year in California.
