Now the academic year has started here are a few things you need to do to make sure you get off to a good start and a few things you might like to do to make the most out of your first Semester:
New students starting university this year could be targeted in a fresh wave of tax scams, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) warns.
To celebrate our new & returning students, the University Bookshop is running a Golden Ticket Competition! Plus, they’ve now launched a student Price Match Promise on new text books used for study at the University! So you can get the best deals on your recommended course textbooks…
CCCU is a safe University but you never know when you or a friend might need the help of security – whether it is because someone has an accident, needs first aid or there is an unexpected emergency.
As part of CCCU’s commitment to the safety of its students, we are delighted working with the Students’ Union, to be launching a Safe Taxi Scheme for Canterbury.
The Canterbury Street Marshals are a friendly team who are here to help you get home safely on your nights out. They operate in male and female pairs on foot and are recognisable by their fluorescent uniform.
Chooseday Chill is all about creating a relaxed and informal setting where students could take time out of their busy uni lives to discuss what is going on over tea and toast, meet other students and have a friendly chat with Student Support. It is a great event if you have just arrived at Uni and starting to settle in.
Recently moved into University accommodation? All the rooms were checked and prepared for your arrival but just in case we have missed anything we have made it easy for you to report any issues via our Planon App and scanning the QR code in your room.
Canterbury Christ Church University and the Students’ Union believe all students have the right to live and study in a safe and supportive environment. We do not support discrimination, bullying or harassment of any form. We are proud of our friendly and inclusive community and expect respect for each and every individual.
This is why we are pleased to support the Zero Tolerance accreditation scheme, led by Kent Union and funded by Kent Police. So far 19 premises in Canterbury’s night time economy have signed up to the scheme to demonstrate that they have a zero tolerance to sexual harassment. This will also be rolled out in Medway during the year.
When you start at University it is essential that you go through a process called Registration as a final step to becoming a Christ Church Student.
Registering enables you to start your course, receive your Student Smartcard, have access to all our services and release your Student Loan or Bursary (if you are entitled to one).
A series of registration events are taking place for late applicants and students who may have been unable to attend a previous event as follows:
As you receive your student finance make sure you are on the look out for phishing emails.
If you are a new student starting this week then you may have to make some module choices (your programme team will let you know more information). Module Options Choice starts from Monday 16 September to 5pm Tuesday 17 September 2018.
Each level of study consists of separate parts known as modules. Module Option Choice gives you an opportunity to focus on the specific topics and themes that are of interest to you, supporting you to build the knowledge and skills that you need. So do not miss out on the opportunity to develop your studies in the way that you want.
Whether a new or returning student the start of the academic year can be exciting and we want you to enjoy your time safely – so here are some tips on looking after yourselves and your mates.
Our Student Accommodation Champions are based in our main University residence and are there to help you settle in, have a chat and provide practical support to make your stay with us a positive experience.
It is World First Aid Day this week and we want to celebrate the brilliant first aiders we have at CCCU.
Having first aiders means we are able to assist anyone on campus who becomes injured in the event of an accident or emergency situation until help arrives. And a quick response can help prevent a situation get worse or even save a life.
We have over 70 members of staff registered as first aiders at Christ Church. And every member of our friendly Security Team is trained in first aid – you can get their assistance quickly and easily at just the press of a button with the Safezone App
There’s no reason why having dyslexia should hold you back from succeeding at CCCU! And indeed as we celebrate graduation this week we wanted to share the success story of just one of our many students who achieved their goals through the support of the Student Disability Team.
Christ Church Students’ Union is a charity run by students for students, providing support and representation for every student across all our campuses. In becoming a student at Christ Church you are automatically a member of the Students’ Union. It is completely free so make the most of it!
