Kent's Liberal Arts programme teaches you to see the world from a range of perspectives - political, cultural, historical and economic - and develops your understanding of how each impacts on the other. At the heart of the programme is a core set of modules that students follow through the duration of the degree; these provide interdisciplinary means of analysing and understanding how and why we think, and act, the way we do today. Through collective discussion and debate around seminal readings, you get a grasp of the full field of social sciences, physical sciences, arts and humanities. You develop an understanding of the impediments to communication between different academic disciplines; of technological and economic revolutions that configure human cultures; and of the wide range of forces that shape events. Students choose optional modules from those offered across the three faculties of the University to suit individual interests and career trajectories.
Application deadline details:
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.
