Postgraduate research

Postgraduate research develops your specialist knowledge in a specific field of study. Working closely with a senior academic, you conduct an original research project that could have a far-reaching impact on the global community.

If you're looking to study a research degree at Kent, we recommend you choose a topic and identify an appropriate supervisor before you apply.

Scholarships and funding

Research needs an open mind, resilience, a willingness to ask, and answer, difficult questions and the ability to collaborate. It also needs funding. That's why we've devised a range of packages to ensure you have financial support, including funding for American students and loans for Canadian students.
