Why choose Canterbury Christ Church University?

Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) is an Anglican new university in Canterbury, Kent, England. Founded as a Church of England college for teaching training in 1962, it has grown to full university status and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012.

The focus of its work is in the education of people going into public service. The university retains its status as a Church of England foundation. It is also known as England's "missionary university".

The university has developed rapidly since its inception in 1962 and now has nearly 18,000 students based at campuses across Kent in Canterbury, Broadstairs, Folkestone, Medway and Tunbridge Wells. As well as being the most significant centre of higher education in Kent for the public services – notably teacher training, health and social care and the emergency services – the university also offers academic and professional programmes, including credit-bearing higher education entry certificates, doctorates and research degrees. Policing and law courses have also been delivered both for the UK and overseas law enforcement agencies. The university gives academic validation to ordination and post-ordination training courses for Anglican clergy delivered by the Canterbury and Rochester dioceses.

Location - Canterbury

 Their undergraduate courses are taught at one of three campuses, and each has a different flavour. From a buzzing city centre in Canterbury to a historic maritime town in Medway and a relaxed seaside resort at Broadstairs – wherever you study you’ll feel right at home.

Canterbury, the world-famous cathedral city, was one of medieval Europe’s great places of pilgrimage and knowledge. Today, with its international visitors, it still has a distinctly cosmopolitan feel. 

Kent is known as the Garden of England and with good reason. It’s also the perfect gateway to the rest of the UK and continental Europe. 

Less than an hour from London, and Europe, only a train ride away, it’s in that corner of England that’s almost touching France. Students really can stay connected and enjoy all that the South East and the continent have to offer.
