Alumni and careers

The Department of Comparative Literature is a diverse and close-knit community. Seeing our students graduate in the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral is one of the most exciting days of the year. As we celebrate their success, we also look forward to finding out where their degrees will take them.

At Kent, we are committed to enhancing the employability of all our students in order to enable them to compete and flourish in a competitive, fast-moving economy. Our students do exceptionally well career-wise working in areas such as education, publishing and journalism. This is due to the excellent analytical, writing, organisational and presentation skills they gain through their studies, as well as to the structured programme of employability events. These events include workshops, conferences and opportunities to gain hands-on experience through our wide range of paid and voluntary work opportunities.
