About the institution

Canterbury Christ Church University started life as a teacher training college established by the Church of England in 1962. Education remains a particular strength, though it now offers a broad range of degree subjects across its network of four campuses, based in Canterbury, Broadstairs, Medway and Tunbridge Wells. The majority of students come from Kent. The university has invested heavily in its facilities in recent years, including new student accommodation in Canterbury city centre.
