We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Canterbury Christ Church University is a modern, multi-campus University offering higher and professional education. It was established in 1962 and is a Church of England Foundation University, welcoming all faiths and none. Today, the University continues to shape courses and research around critical social issues, the latest industry developments and public service need.
Nearly 90% of its research submitted to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) was assessed as world-leading, internationally significant or internationally recognised.
Our postgraduate courses are broadly split into two groups, Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate by Research. Ranging from Postgraduate Certificates to MPhils and PhDs. We currently offer over 140 different subjects and are constantly looking to expand our offering.
Our service actively supports postgraduate students who are looking for expert advice in changing careers or retraining. Our Career Development Advisers deliver tailored lectures and workshops, to equip you with the necessary skills and competencies for your chosen career.

If your first language isn’t English our Academic English Service offers workshops and tutorials to help you to develop your understanding of the language.
There’s a lot of support available for postgraduate students at Christ Church. For example, you can get assistance with finance, health and wellbeing, careers and employability and childcare. We have invested more than £80m over the last decade on new and renovated buildings, part of our commitment to providing a first-class student experience.
Located at the Canterbury Campus is Augustine House, our award-winning library and student services building, along with the Students’ Union, arts and culture venues, as well as various food courts and cafes. Additionally, there is a sports centre, with exercise studios and a fully-equipped gym. As part of the facilities offered by the Graduate School there is a dedicated room on campus for research students, with exclusive 24-hour access to IT facilities and other resources.
At the Medway Campus, there is a library, a cafe and a bar, along with subject specific facilities for health students. There are also lecture theatres, IT suites, seminar and tutorial rooms. Some of the facilities here are shared with the University of Kent and the University of Greenwich.
Although, as a postgraduate student you are not guaranteed a place in university accommodation unless you meet the criteria for Special Accommodation, or you are travelling from outside of the UK to study at Canterbury, we will provide guidance and help for anybody who would like to stay in private accommodation.
