Whether you’ve just started or you’re a returning student – make use of some extra support in developing and improving your study skills with Academic Learning Development. They’re running workshops throughout the first semester to help all CCCU students with exam, assignment and general study skills.
Whether you are in your first year of university or coming to the end of your degree it is good to know that there is a network of professionals to support you every step of the way and help you achieve your goals.
CCCU is a safe University but you never know when you might need the help of security – whether it is because someone has an accident, needs first aid or there is an unexpected emergency.
SafeZone is a safety app which gives you peace of mind when on campus. It means whatever the situation you don’t have to panic – all you have to do is press a button and Security will be there to assist.
If you are a new student starting this week then your may have to make some module choices (your programme team will let you know more information). Module Options Choice starts from Monday 17 September to 4pm Wednesday 19 September 2018.
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.
University can mean a new place, new people and new environment which is exciting! We want you to enjoy your new surrounding safely – Kent is a safe place to study and the risk of experiencing anything untoward is thankfully very low but here are some tips to looking after yourselves and others.
We look forward to welcoming many of you this weekend for your registration.
Registration is an important event that all students must attend to ensure that they get fully enrolled onto their course and are all ready to start their studies.
The Your Uni Events, taking place on 20 and 21 September, are a not to be missed one hour introduction to the Christ Church Team that are here to support you on your journey as a student – from the very early days right the way through to graduation.
Would you like to just take time out over some comforting tea and toast; relax with some friends over some board games; catch a film or unwind with some sports activities? Then Chooeday Chill is for you!
When you first arrive, it can be a bit disorientating but it won’t take you long to find your way around – honest!
Miss this presentation at your peril. It is likely to be the most memorable lecture you will see this year. In fact, maybe in your lifetime.
As we get closer to starting the academic year many of you will be thinking about getting IT ready!
In just a few days many of you will be making your way to either Canterbury or Medway campus to move in to your halls of residence…
During September 2018, Canterbury City Council will introduce a new way to pay throughout the Park and Ride car parks. Existing payment machines will be replaced with automatic number plate recognition (ANPR). This will allow payment by either cash or card (including contactless), as well as by app or phone.
The introduction of these new machines will make the prepaid discount cards redundant. However regular users of the service will be able to set up an on-line account and get a 20% reduction off the standard parking charge. For more details on these improvements please see the City Council website.
After your accommodation, food will probably be your biggest expense at university. A recent survey showed that on average students spend £108 on food per month.
We hope you are all looking forward to the beginning of a new academic year. This a great time of year as we get ready to welcome lots of new students and celebrate graduation with others.
Plus there’s a number of events, activities and general updates that will help you to get the year off to a good start!
And please remember if you are a current student to re-register on the Student Portal or if you a joining us for the first time to attend a registration event – as we need to know that you are coming!
We know that it is both exciting and daunting to start University but during your Welcome Week we have everything in place to help you start your CCCU life – so don’t miss out!
During your first week your Programme Team will have an induction planned to introduce you to your fellow students and your studies (Check your Arrival Instructions Tile in your Student Portal for the details). This is essential to give you a good start to your new academic life – discover where everything is on the campus, learn more about your programme, get your timetable and find out what is expected of you. For some programmes you will also be making important module choice decisions during this time.
Whether you’re really into your sports or you’re just looking for a fitness class to keep yourself active, Christ Church Sport have it all.
It is vital that you upload a photo as soon as possible, by doing so we can then have a Smartcard ready for you at Registration. There are many benefits to having a Smartcard.
