The School also offers a research degree programme (PhD) and taught Master’s programmes in Architecture and Cities, Architectural Visualisation and Architecture and Sustainable Environment. These programmes also benefit from expertise in urban studies, animation and art within other schools at Kent.

The main objective is to combine contemporary advanced research with an educational agenda, preparing candidates to practise in a global academic and professional world.

A particular feature of the KSA research degree programme is the wide spectrum of investigation and the possibility of undertaking research by design.
