Originally starting out as a teacher training college in the 1960s, Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) now offers a diverse range of courses and has a very strong record for health-related courses and teacher education.
There are four academic faculties:
Christ Church's main campus is situated in the world-famous city of Canterbury and is one of only a handful of universities with a campus in a World Heritage Site.
Canterbury is less than an hour from London by high-speed train and the Continent is easily accessible. The University also has a campus in Medway and a centre in Tunbridge Wells. There are around 16,000 students, of which 70% study full-time.
The University has ambitious and exciting plans for the future with a £150 million campus development, which includes a new centre for engineering and technology, and a stunning, new arts building which opened in January 2019. Further investment in STEM includes the creation of Kent and Medway’s first-ever medical school, in partnership with the University of Kent which launches in 2020.
A strong emphasis is placed on sport, with scholarships available for those that have a talent for it. A wide range of sports clubs are available for students, including badminton, basketball, rugby and volleyball.
Christ Church is in the top 20 in the UK for qualified teaching staff with 79% of academic staff holding teaching qualifications in addition to their academic and professional qualifications. The university was awarded silver in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework.
