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.
