Kent will be holding a postgraduate virtual open event on Wednesday 24 February (16.00 – 19.00). This free event will enable prospective students to find out more about studying a master’s degree, conversion programme or PhD at Kent.

Aimed at both new graduates and those looking to return to education after a period of time out, the event will provide attendees with the opportunity to talk to specialist academics, admissions staff and representatives from the Graduate and Researcher College about courses, life at the University, careers and employability. They will also be able to gain insight into the latest funding information, including the loans available for Masters students.

Prospective students can explore the vast Canterbury and Medway campuses from a drone’s-eye-perspective, including outdoor social and learning environments, as well as the celebrated green spaces and world-famous cathedral-city view over the Canterbury World Heritage Site. Furthermore, they can virtually tour Kent’s high-quality academic buildings and specialist facilities, including labs and sports centres, lecture theatres and accommodation.

On 6 January, the University held its most successful undergraduate virtual open event to date, with prospective students from more than 100 countries in attendance. Almost 3000 visitors, including those from the UK and the south-east region, went online to learn more about studying at Kent.

Simone Davies, the University’s director of marketing and recruitment, said: ‘For everyone who is thinking about postgraduate study and progression, now is a great time for them to take that next step on their career path. At Kent, we understand that tomorrow’s world is their world, and we will support them at each step of the way to realising their ambitions. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to our upcoming virtual open event.’

Loveness Williams (38), who studied MA Social Work at the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR) in the 2019/2020 academic year, found that the skills she has gained through postgraduate study have equipped her to excel in her future career. She said: ‘As a postgraduate student balancing my studies with children, being a student rep and having a job, it has not always been easy. Yet, with support from the University here I am about to enter a new profession equipped with the critical thinking and advocacy skills to really make a difference.’
