Broadening horizons and expanding minds

Terms and conditions of study


To enrol onto a Study Plus module you must be a fully registered university of Kent student with a university of Kent SDS record. If you are an adjunct member of the university or a visiting training fellow then you must email to ask about your eligibility.

Before you sign up for a Study Plus course

As a student committing to take a Study Plus course, you should take the following steps before signing up to join a session or a series of sessions:

  • Consult the course details provided on the 'Courses' page of this website and only sign up for a course that you can manage, both in terms of timetabling and workload. Make sure that you are aware if there is any homework required.
  • Consider your workload for your main programme of study. This should be your main priority - be sure not to take on other commitments if you feel your main studies might suffer.
  • Be sure not to sign up for a course if you feel you may not be able to attend all sessions.
  • If you wish to withdraw from a Study Plus course which you have signed up for, you must do so in advance of the course start date by emailing us at
  • Add the scheduling details of your Study Plus Course to your diary and make a note so that you remember when the sessions will take place.
  • If you're not sure if any particular course would suit you, you can email for further details or contact the providing department or school, who may be able to give you a more detailed response.
  • Please note, we reserve the right to withdraw (without notice) any student who is not attending.

Please note: we will cancel a course if not enough students sign up for it. If you sign up for a course which is cancelled due to lack of numbers, we will notify you at least one day before the first session is due.
