Go Abroad

A-Z course list

Click on the tabs below for a full list of study and work abroad opportunities.

In addition to these courses, all students within the Faculty of Humanities have the opportunity to apply to study abroad. Please see the Faculty website or email goabroad@kent.ac.uk for more information.

In most cases, Kent students must also meet the academic and attendance requirements set by their School or Faculty in order to study/work abroad. At present, students are required to get an average mark of 60% at Stage 1 (the First Year) and Stage 2 (the Second Year). All marks, including Wild modules, count in the calculation of the average. The exceptions to this rule are currently the Single/Joint Honours Language programmes for which the Year Abroad is obligatory. Students must also complete and submit the Overseas Travel Health Questionnaire in the spring/summer of their Second Year (this will be sent to them with instructions at the appropriate time) and attend a compulsory pre-departure briefing from the Go Abroad team. 

Please note that some study abroad institutions may request students meet additional entry requirements in order for their study abroad application to be given full consideration. This may, for example, include proof of English language ability or subject-specific qualifications or experience. Further details are available from the Go Abroad team.

For postgraduate opportunities, see Postgraduate placements.
