JYA English Plus
JYA English PLUS has been designed to meet the needs of students whose first language is not English. It offers a combination of language training, study skills and the opportunity to study academic modules from across the University.
The programme starts with an intensive course called English for Academic Purposes. This helps you to develop the language and study skills required for UK academic study. The second part of the programme involves the study of a series of academic modules, offered by a range of schools across the University of Kent.

From September, students take two modules (worth 30 credits) in English language:

- LZ330: Extending English Language Skills
Most of our students also choose 90 credits of academic modules from those offered at Stage 1. However, if this level of study is too advanced, we offer foundation modules in history, literature, politics, sociology, philosophy, business management and economics. Please note: for advanced students the English language modules are optional – they can choose 120 credits from those offered at Stage 1 or 2.
