JYA English PLUS

JYA English PLUS

Study a combination of language training, study skills and academic modules from across the University

JYA English PLUS is for students whose first language is not English. It offers you the opportunity to improve your English and study skills and to spend a term or two studying academic modules. You live on a beautiful campus, meet fellow students from around the world and gain a recognised qualification from the University of Kent.

Why choose JYA English PLUS?

  • Recognised qualification from University of Kent
  • Dedicated programme for non-native speakers
  • A choice of start and end dates
  • Improved English language skills
  • General and academic orientation with Kent’s new degree students
  • Taught on the Canterbury campus - a safe, self-contained environment with everything you need for a good academic and social life

The programme is offered in two different lengths: a full year (from May to April) or part year (from May to December). After your first 16 weeks of English language study we assess your language skills. This helps to determine which modules you should follow.


The University has everything that a student is looking for - a beautiful campus, quality education and a friendly atmosphere. I took the JYA English PLUS programme and it was ideal for me.
