About Canterbury Christ Church University
Inspired by our Church of England foundation, we are strongly committed to transforming individuals, creating knowledge, enriching communities and building a sustainable future.
We want to do more than just provide our students with a high-quality education. We also want to work in partnership with our students to ensure they graduate with an understanding of the challenges facing society and our world, and have the skills, commitment and personal qualities needed to help address them.
Our aims 2015 to 2020
Our aspirations for the next five years are formed around four broad aims. We want to enhance the student experience, further develop our high-quality teaching, extend our research and knowledge exchange activity and ensure all our resources are used to effectively support the achievement of our goals.
Enhancing the student experience
We will continue to work with students as partners to provide a first-class university experience that includes stimulating teaching, as well as opportunities for workplace and voluntary experience and study abroad. We will further develop our high-quality support services and facilities to ensure they are provided how and when our students need them. We will build on our existing mechanisms for receiving and acting upon student feedback, so we can continue to deliver an excellent student experience.
Our high-quality teaching
We believe in a curriculum that is informed by our research, contributes to the needs of society and enhances the student experience. The strength and breadth of our courses are notable and we want to build on that success across the board while ensuring that our commitment to social and environmental sustainability is embedded throughout our teaching and research.
