University of Kent
The University of Kent is the UK’s European university. As a top 20 research institution we have a dynamic and challenging academic environment underpinned by an international perspective and a global community.
Kent is known for the interdisciplinary nature of its programmes and research. We offer a range of taught and research degrees and short courses, across the arts and humanities, social sciences, health, science and technology. We are the only university to have specialist postgraduate centres in Brussels, Paris, Rome and Athens as well as the UK.
£12m postgraduate scholarship fund
Funding includes taught and research student scholarships, location-specific awards, sport and music scholarships, and funding specifically for students who pay overseas fees. We also have a Graduate Teaching Assistantship scheme whereby postgraduate research students receive financial support in return for teaching.
A leading university
Kent is a top 20 research university with a dynamic intellectual community of students and staff. Postgraduate students are encouraged to take an active role in our academic community; they are taught and supervised by world-class researchers and encouraged to present work at research seminars, participate in conferences and publish papers.

The Graduate School creates a vibrant interdisciplinary academic community across all our campuses and centres through the provision of support, funding opportunities and employability focused skills training for its postgraduate students. The Researcher Development Programme for research students and Global Skills Award Programme for Master’s degree students offer over 300 training sessions annually across a range of topics.
Kent’s postgraduate students come from over 140 countries and range in age from 21 to their 70’s. We welcome everyone and have a large cohort of mature students studying either for a career change or to indulge a long-held passion for a subject.
