Virtual summer school opportunities

Take part in a virtual summer school at one of our partner universities. A great opportunity to learn with top academics and enjoy diverse cultural activities without flight and accommodation costs.

Do you have plans for Summer 2021?

Kent is pleased to offer various virtual summer schools being delivered by our partner universities.  Many are offering full scholarships or discounts to participate.  Now is a great time to learn something new, try a course that you may not be able to study here at Kent or help to enhance your studies ready for next term.  Courses on offer range from Film to Buddhism, Introduction to Cantonese to European Cultural Studies, Sustainable Development to Techpreneurship.
