Welcome to Canterbury Christ Church University

Canterbury Christ Church University is a modern, multi-campus University which is making a positive and lasting difference to local and global communities.

Actively involved in public life, we’re helping to influence national policy and practice while addressing real-world complexities through its teaching and research. Our students and graduates make a significant impact on society, working in schools, hospitals, the creative industries, business and sciences, sharing their knowledge and skills.

Christ Church has a vibrant community of 17,000 students and nearly 2,000 staff studying and working across our network of campuses and centres in Canterbury, Broadstairs, Medway and Tunbridge Wells, and we are one of only a handful of universities in the UK to be situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We’re proud of our strong community of staff and their achievements locally and nationally. Their teaching and research are continually pushing boundaries with new discoveries and ideas for a sustainable, just society. Innovative projects and partnerships are coming up with solutions to national and global challenges, from education, migration, and politics, to patient-centred care, childcare and improving the nation’s health and wellbeing through the arts.

With nearly 90% of research submitted to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessed as world-leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised, we’re proud of our contribution to society and the economy, and will continue to look for new opportunities to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
