Short courses

Short courses

The University of Kent is committed to providing free educational opportunities for those who have not been to university. We believe that education is for everyone and want to help people to take the next step in their learning.

Short courses for adults

We understand that returning to education can sometimes be daunting and therefore we provide short courses in welcoming and informal environments with no expectation of further study. Priority for these courses will be given to those who do not already hold a qualification from a Higher Education Institution.
