The CCCU Student’s Union (SU) acts as the representational voice of the university’s student community and provides academic and personal advice to encourage the best university experience for its student members. It is a student-run organisation that offers CCCU students many opportunities to get involved. Services that are offered include general training, skills development, student activities, employment opportunities and information about volunteering.
The SU team consists of a mix of full-time sabbatical officers, staff and a board of trustees.
Clubs and societies
Canterbury Christ Church University’s SU organises over 90 clubs and societies for its 15,000 student population. This includes a variety of different sports teams, language groups and an eclectic mix of special interest societies which cater to all preferences.
CCCU provides hundreds of opportunities to try something new, whether it’s for recreational or social reasons, or to develop skills and networks for future careers. Students are encouraged to start new clubs and societies, and the university supports the creation of new organisations, offering accreditation and funding.
