Professional courses and training

The University of Kent’s Tonbridge Centre is providing a West Kent base for the delivery of short courses, training and networking opportunities for professionals, in collaboration with the University's Centre for Child Protection, Centre for Professional Practice, Kent Business School and Kent Innovation and Enterprise. Our business courses and seminars are specifically designed for organisations to unlock innovation and build resilience to create sustainable competitive advantage.

For more information please visit our Professional training pages.

Short courses - autumn, spring and summer programmes

If you would like to extend your knowledge of a particular subject, or are simply curious to know more, a short course is a good choice for you. Our Short Courses are of variable lengths, ranging from one-off Study Mornings, Workshops or Days to weekly meetings of two hours, held on weekdays and some Saturdays. They allow you to spend time exploring a subject purely for the pleasure of learning, in the company of other people who share your interests and are similarly motivated, without formal assessment. They are also an ideal starting point before making the decision to study for a credit-bearing certificate or degree.

Subjects include:

  • Art History
  • Classics
  • Creative Writing including Writing for Business
  • Economics
  • History
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Politics and International Relations
  • Psychology
  • Sociology

These courses are currently not available at the Tonbridge Centre; for information about courses at the university's Canterbury or Medway campuses visit the Part-time degrees page.
