Study Plus

A wide range of non-credit-bearing courses for University of Kent students

The Study Plus scheme is part of the Kent Extra range of activities available to University of Kent students. It provides a range of short-term courses and workshops which can enhance your graduate employability skills alongside your main subject specialism.

Our courses are free to students registered on an existing Kent programme of study. The only courses that may attribute a cost would be where you receive a recognised qualification, and this will outlined on the booking system.

Study Plus enhances your student experience through providing a chance to learn new skills alongside your degree. Study Plus courses are non credit bearing. You will be eligible for Employability Points.

The workshop leader was very knowledgeable and knew what she was talking about. She addressed my question very well. It was organised well despite the Corona crisis happening at the time.
