European centres

In addition to our UK campuses, we have specialist study centres in some of the most exciting and historic cities in Europe. You can study for a UK degree full-time in Brussels, Paris and Athens or for a term abroad in Rome and Paris.

Many of our programmes offer dual UK and European qualifications (international double awards) at Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral level. Your study and research is underpinned by the unique facilities and resources of these stunning locations.


Kent is the only UK university to have a centre in the 'capital of Europe'. The Brussels School of International Studies offers postgraduate programmes taught by world-leading academics and experienced practitioners. We also provide valuable internship opportunities.

We have a broad selection of taught and research programmes available, ranging from politics and international relations to law, migration and conflict studies. This means you can choose a degree that best reflects your interests.
