Kent’s Paris School of Arts and Culture is a specialist postgraduate centre offering advanced humanities degrees, taught in English, in the heart of the French capital. The School is part of the University of Kent, one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities, and allows you to study exclusively in Paris or to take a split-site programme, where you spend your first term studying at our Canterbury campus in the UK, followed by a term in Paris.
With programmes across the arts, including in architecture, history of art, film, drama, literature and history, we encourage interdisciplinary study so you can create a degree that combines your interests and follow in the footsteps of eminent intellectuals who have lived in, and taken inspiration from, this remarkable city.
Living and studying in Paris - one of the world's most intellectually and culturally influential cities - will inspire and stimulate you. Based at Columbia Global Center (known as Reid Hall) in historic Montparnasse, you are close to the famous Latin Quarter, the Sorbonne University and the Jardin du Luxembourg and can explore the exceptional architecture, libraries, museums and art galleries the city has to offer.
Our staff are known for their research-led teaching which is further enhanced by the cultural, linguistic and experiential immersion of Paris. With specialist knowledge of both Canterbury and Paris, we utilise the extensive resources available to bring your subject to life.
Living and studying in Paris not only provides a life-changing personal experience, it also fosters independence and confidence. By developing your cultural awareness and demonstrating your adaptability, you put yourself in an excellent place to achieve your ambitions. Recent graduate destinations include international marketing, the film industry, heritage management, teaching and academia.
“All my creative work revolved around walking through the city and taking inspiration from my immediate environment. Those experiences couldn't have been duplicated anywhere else.”
~ Claire Hurley, Paris School of Arts and Culture student
