International Study in the Faculty of Humanities


Maurizio Cinquegrani at the British Council, Taipei

The Faculty of Humanities believes that international experience, skills and awareness are key requisites in understanding and dealing with many of today's political, social, environmental and economic challenges. They are also central assets that improve the employability of our students. That is why the faculty is actively developing its global outreach on all levels, from international research collaborations to the provision of a truly international student experience. As Faculty Director of Internationalisation, I coordinate various activities and ensure that the international ambitions of Schools, Faculty and University are developed, supported and promoted in accordance with Faculty and University strategy.

International Student Experience
All our students have the opportunity to get exposed to different cultures, learn languages and see the world with new eyes. We are convinced that these experiences and opportunities will give our students an edge on the job market and equip them with the necessary tools to succeed in a globalised world.
We have established annual exchange agreements with universities all over the world. Within the Humanities Faculty, all undergraduate programmes offer you the option to apply to study for a year or a term abroad or take a year's work placement. For further information on these opportunities click here.
At home, we continue to support the global engagement of Schools and subjects with a dedicated internationalisation fund of £45,000 each academic year. This fund supports international short term mobility – such as field trips, student excursions, joint seminars with partner universities abroad – as well as the fostering of international partnerships.
You can discover the diverse exciting opportunities our students have had on short trips abroad here.
Our postgraduate students across the Faculty furthermore benefit from our campuses in Paris and Rome, where we offer several MA-programmes, from Classical and Renaissance Studies to Arts and Culture. Our postgraduate study centre in Athens offers a Master's in Heritage Management. You can find more information about our European centres by following the links on the left.

International Students
The stunning medieval city in the proximity of London and our campuses at major European cities make Canterbury the top choice for more than 450 international students that come into our Faculty every year. Approximately 15% of our students are international students doing their entire degree at Kent. You can find all necessary information about studying at Kent and about our range of pre-sessional language courses and foundation programmes for our international students here.

International Research and Global Engagement
Scholars at the Faculty of Humanities are among the world leading experts in their fields. Their work is global in outlook and in impact. We also have long-standing partnerships and collaborative links covering teaching or research with a large number of prestigious European and international Higher Education Institutions. Kent's international links allow staff to broaden their experience and enhance their skills through contact with many different countries, cultures and experiences.
