Erasmus exchange

Erasmus exchange

We are committed to giving our students the opportunity to study and work in Europe

Kent has been an active participant in the Erasmus+ programme for over 30 years, exchanging over 600 students per year with over 100 European partner institutions and our current Erasmus project will continue to be active for 2021-22 and 2022-23. Beyond this date we will continue to exchange students with our current Erasmus partners via new bilateral arrangements.

Kent has exchange agreements with many universities around the world and can make similar arrangements with other reputable universities. If you come to Kent under one of these agreements you are an exchange student and continue to pay your fees to your home university.

European Credit Transfer System

Kent took part in the pilot project for the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), and the use of ECTS across the University was approved and implemented at the earliest opportunity.

ECTS, was developed by the Commission of the European Communities in order to provide common procedures to guarantee academic recognition of studies abroad. It provides a way of measuring and comparing learning achievements, and transferring them from one institution to another.

I feel that my language skills improved greatly and I learned to be a lot more adaptable.
