Kent is one of the UK's leading universities. All our academic schools produce research of international standing and our research activities and collaborations with outside organisations create knowledge that is highly influential in many areas.
Our programmes in Rome are informed by our commitment to research excellence, drawing on the expertise of leading academics from the School of Arts and the School of European Culture and Languages. With specialist knowledge of resources in both Canterbury and Rome, our academics bring your subject to life.
Our aim is to create an active postgraduate community and we encourage you to attend events and conferences while you are in Rome. Each year we run an event, usually held at the Ambassador's residence, where we, along with invited speakers and guests, celebrate our students' achievements.
Quote Professor Tom Henry
Rome is our classroom, and the experience for teacher and student is unrivalled.
Professor Tom Henry Director of the Rome School of Classical and Renaissance Studies
At the American University of Rome, where your studies are based, lecture rooms are based in a former monastery and there are gardens and terraces where you can relax with friends between lectures. The well-stocked library has designated areas for group work, computer and reading rooms, and offers access to online databases as well as the vast network of Rome's libraries.
You can also use the resources at many of the city's other libraries, such as the Library of Archaeology and Art History, and the libraries of the British School at Rome, the American Academy, and the Finnish and Norwegian Institutes, all of which have specialist collections in the study of antiquity.
Details of our facilities in Canterbury can be found here.
Whatever your career goal, a postgraduate qualification from the University of Kent equips you with an impressive portfolio of skills, specialist knowledge and practical experience to help you succeed in a competitive job market.
By living and studying overseas you have shown potential employers that you are independently minded, ambitious and confident, all attributes graduate employers look for. Some of our alumni choose to continue their studies at doctoral level, while others have gone on to work in museums, galleries, higher education institutions, charities and the civil service.
Throughout your studies, you can take advantage of the resources of the University's award-winning Careers and Employability service, with Skype consultations offered when you are in Rome.
