Short-term study

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.
