Partner colleges

You may be able to study on a University of Kent course at one of our partner colleges. Courses are validated by the University of Kent, and are taught in the college by college tutors. The qualifications are awarded by the University of Kent, which has overall responsibility for the academic level and quality of the course.

Canterbury College

Canterbury College is located across the city from the University’s Canterbury campus. The College is part of the EKC group, one of the largest providers of academic and vocational studies in the country. It has also just completed a major campus redevelopment project that includes a sports centre and excellent resources for higher education students.
