Canterbury and Rome have been linked since the Middle Ages by the pilgrimage route Via Francigena. The University of Kent is currently expanding programmes at our newest European centre in Rome, taking advantage of the city’s wealth of history, architecture, and art, and offering students a unique opportunity to have direct access to archaeological sites, museums, and galleries.
Both the School of Arts and the School of European Culture and Languages offer programmes that include an opportunity to spend a term studying in Rome. Students begin their one-year MA in the world heritage city of Canterbury, and then relocate in the spring term to The American University of Rome, at their lovely campus atop the Janiculum Hill. While enjoying the benefits of a traditional campus and university facilities in Rome, students have the additional resources of Rome’s specialised and extensive libraries.
