Study in Paris

Several of the taught MA programmes offered by the School of English allow you to share your year between the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus and its Paris centre. The first term is spent in Canterbury before you transfer to Montparnasse for the spring term where you can choose from a range of interdisciplinary Paris-focused modules taught in English. In addition to these one-term options, from 2015 two of our programmes can be taken entirely in Paris. The University of Kent attracts ambitious and cultured students from all over the world to these cross-disciplinary postgraduate degrees and the School of English is a key partner in this unique offering. These programmes allow you to earn an internationally respected UK degree, in the medium of English, whilst benefitting from on the experience of living in one of the most exhilarating cultural capitals in the world.
