Description

Hispanic Studies at Kent is concerned with the culture and literature of the Spanish-speaking world, whether in Europe or Latin America, as well as engaging with related Iberian cultures and languages, namely Portuguese and Catalan. The literary component of this MA programme is taught in conjunction with the Department of Comparative Literature, while the cultural component of the course benefits from the diverse expertise of staff in the Department of Hispanic Studies.

Kent provides an ideal location in which to study Spanish and Catalan culture; our Canterbury campus is close to mainland European, with convenient access to the Eurostar terminal at Ashford.

This programme is only currently available for part-time study. The programme is ideal for students of modern languages wishing to take their study further, students of literature wanting to gain an international perspective, or anyone interested in the cultures emerging from the world’s most widely spoken language.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
