Join our close-knit, welcoming community of research students for unparalleled one-to-one support and the chance to pursue the research interests that inspire you.
An open and welcoming research culture
Being part of a small, friendly research community offers many benefits. It means that you will always have direct access to personal support which opens up the opportunity for in-depth academic discussion and interaction, not just within your field of study but across the range of academic disciplines.
You can study for a research degree with us full or part-time. In fact, many of our researchers are professionals who have returned to study part-time.
Unique opportunities and dedicated facilities
We encourage personal, creative research subjects, giving you the opportunity to pursue research degrees that you wouldn't find anywhere else.
Canterbury Christ Church University provides a Researcher Development Programme and a wide range of development and skills training opportunities for all research students.
We offer a dedicated room on campus for research students, where you will have exclusive 24-hour access to IT facilities and other resources.
All our research degrees are managed by the Graduate School which is based on our Canterbury Campus.
