Students can choose modules from Stages 1, 2, or 3 of any undergraduate degree, giving you a lot of flexibility in your studies. If you wish to take a module within a new subject area it is advisable to choose from the Stage 1 modules, which are at an introductory level. Please bear in mind that your choices will need to be approved by the academic school. It is important that you choose your modules carefully, selecting topics that you are interested in and that are suitable for your level of knowledge.
Examinations are held during the summer term. However, if you are coming to Kent for the fall semester (autumn term) only, and wish to choose a module that includes an examination, it may be possible for Kent to arrange an alternative form of assessment. Please contact us for details.
