First established in 1962, Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) has built an excellent reputation over the past 60 years for its quality training and education programmes.
It is one of just a handful of universities within the UK to be located within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with campuses in Canterbury, Medway and in Tunbridge Wells. Students who opt to attend CCCU will note the rich heritage of not just the institution but the local area as well.
There are around 15,000 students attending the University of which around 20% are on a postgraduate qualification in one of the three academic faculties:
Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Education
Faculty of Medicine, Health and Social Care
Faculty of Science, Engineering and Social Sciences
CCCU is a Church of England Foundation University, but it welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds, with a real sense of community and support.
The university runs a program of courses designed around critical current social issues and public service needs, as well as the latest and most relevant industry developments.
The most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), which assessed the quality of research in the preceding seven years, found that Canterbury Christ Church University had more than doubled its proportion of world-leading (4*) research and quadrupled its proportion of world-leading (4*) impact since 2014.
Postgraduate students are able to choose from a variety of taught subject options and research degrees. Students who choose a postgrad qualification at CCCU will benefit from outstanding teaching, modern facilities and career-focussed training.
Students attending CCCU have a range of options available for postgraduate study, but throughout their studies they will be supported by the Graduate College, which administrates both the taught and research-led options.
Alongside this, the college also runs a number of training programmes for students who wish to gain advantages ahead of their move into a career, focusing on broader skills. Students will learn about effective job applications, interview techniques and more should they make the most of the opportunities available.
Networking events are also organised so that postgraduate students can meet others in their chosen field and begin to make the connections that may secure them a favourable role in future.
