Study your way
You’ve chosen the subject you want to study, but at Kent you can still explore other areas by taking elective modules. These modules allow you to expand your learning. So, a Politics student studying 20th-century US politics, might take a module on post-war American cinema, or a Marketing student, interested in the environment, could choose a module on conservation.
There are lots of possibilities, with modules in foreign languages, art history, criminology, literature, psychology, ancient history, and many more. Take a look at our list of elective modules and create a degree that matches your ambitions and interests.
On our ‘Year in’ courses you gain additional skills that can help you move on to a rewarding career. Developed for undergraduate students, this self-contained year can be taken between your second and final year, or after your final year. Many of our degrees also offer a year abroad or in industry.
Learn coding and web skills and create computer systems that people want to engage with.
Data analytics is changing how we work. On this course, you learn how to create and interpret data.
Working in a live newsroom, you learn the essentials of reporting, journalism and media law.
Want a career that takes you overseas? Gain new skills and learn to communicate in another language.
Your first step to a career in television or the media with a year at KMTV on the Medway campus.
Studying abroad can give you a new perspective on your subject and on life. You’ll grow in confidence and have great stories to tell.
Helen Bedi was so impressive during her year in industry, she was offered a job when she graduated.
Joint honours degrees combine two subjects. Our A-Z course list has all the combinations, so study your two favourites or try something new.
At Kent, we we want to help you make the most of your time at university. Alongside your degree you could learn a language, gain skills in entrepreneurship or media, or further develop your employability skills.
There are also lots of opportunities to volunteer. If you're interested in the environment, you could volunteer on a conservation project; if you want to support others, get involved with local community projects. So, expand your thinking and create a university experience that reflects you.
