FREE Study Plus courses

Study Plus courses are FREE to all Kent students and give you a chance to study for pleasure or improve your employability by learning new skills.

If you have summer travel plans, learn some useful phrases before you go, with:
Spanish (KE089), Japanese (KE090) or Arabic (KE091) for travel. You can take a beginner’s course in Business Mandarin (KE007) and if you already speak some Mandarin, you could take Discover Chinese Language and Culture (KE088).

If you’re looking to develop your employment prospects, look no further than:
Employability Skills (KE043), or Careers in the third sector (KE070). Post grad students can also sign up for Who are you? Improving your prospects by knowing your strengths (KE094). Our intensive 5-day course: Journalism (KE044) gives you the chance to experience the pressure and the pleasure of making real journalism  to real deadlines under professional leadership.

The very popular Digital Photography course (KE122) is back, allowing you to get to grips with your digital SLR camera and learn to take better photos of people.

Dirty History (KE004) will appeal to Game of Thrones fans and anyone interested in  separating medieval fact from fantasy.

Finally, Big Ideas (KE128-KE131) is a series of 4 stand alone workshops offering an introduction to western philosophy.

Most of the courses are on the Canterbury campus, but Journalism is at Medway. You can sign up for a course at Canterbury or Medway and use the free shuttle bus to travel to the course if it is not on your home campus.

You can sign up for a course via Workshops in the Student Data System. Please make sure that you are definitely able to do the course before signing up for it!
