Welcome to the Canterbury Christ Church University Business School
Information for students based on our Canterbury campus:
We hope you’re having a good summer, and we’re looking forward to seeing you on our Canterbury Campus in September. Before you arrive you’ll probably want to find out more about your course and the people who’ll be teaching you. We hope this page will answer many of your questions, but feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other concerns or queries. Our Business School website also contains a lot of information that you will find useful.
What happens next?
If you’re taking exams or waiting for results, we’ve got our fingers crossed for you. Once the results come out on 16 August we’ll be able to confirm your place. Don’t forget to check your UCAS Track once you’ve got your results as you’ll need to confirm acceptance.
If you already have your qualifications, then you don’t have anything to worry about, but if the unthinkable happens and you don’t quite get the grades you wanted, get in touch with us via our Clearing Line on 01227 540980 as we may be able to help.
In the meantime, enjoy the summer and maybe take a look at some of the information we’ve included below – useful things to get you prepared for this next exciting phase in your life. Also, why not use facebook to catch up with some of the other people starting here in September:
Once results are out, our University Admissions team will send you Pre-Registration instructions after 20 August. You’ll need to look out for this, as it includes things you should do as soon as you receive it. Completing it will give you access to CLICLearn, our virtual learning environment, where you’ll find timetables, detailed reading lists and lots of other useful information.
AccommodationIf you’ve requested University accommodation, you’ll also get this confirmed once results are out. If you haven’t, then keep an eye on our accommodation webpages for information about finding private accommodation.
