Academic subject areas
Within our short-term programmes, Kent offers modules in a range of academic subjects. You can take modules across more than one subject or specialise in a particular subject – such as history – and choose modules in that subject area. All the modules on our short-term programmes are also offered on Kent’s undergraduate degree courses, where Stage 1 is the first year of full-time study, Stage 2 the second year and Stage 3 the third year.
Modules offered by the Faculty of Sciences are grouped according to broad subject headings taught by the Faculty:
- Biosciences (BI)
- Computing (CO)
- Engineering and Digital Arts (EL)
- Forensic Science (PS)
- Chemistry (PS)
- Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science (AH)
- Physics (PH)
You can search for individual modules for each stage in our module catalogue.
The Stage 2 and 3 programmes provide single integrated modules and assume that you have taken the appropriate first year module or reached an equivalent standard in your courses elsewhere. Short-term students can take the full second year of a particular Stage 2 and 3 course but in many cases it is more appropriate for you to take combinations of Stage 1 and 2 modules which form coherent programmes related to your needs and previous work.
