Kent offers a range of modules reflecting the central place of religion in human life and thought. Some modules provide introductions to major world religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam. Other modules investigate philosophical themes within religious studies; and others explore connections between religion and topics such as psychology, sociology, science, ethics, popular culture, films, literature and the arts.
Canterbury is a well-known centre in world religion, and the University has strong links with the Cathedral library and archives. The Department of Religious Studies also benefits from staff with expertise in Asian Studies to give an insight into world religions.

Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.
I have loved my 3 years at Kent. It really does feel like a family. The campus is amazing (especially if you like rabbits), there is lots of places to relax, study or socialise. The facility's are all in great condition and well thought out. Plenty of opportunity to get involved in extra things such as clubs, work, volunteering etc. Like any family it has its problems (mainly communication) but this is something they seem to be working on and the enthusiastic caring lecturers make up for it.
