Community Arts & Education

Canterbury Christ Church University offers you the opportunity to participate in our growing range of Adult Education programmes which have been developed for you to discover, learn and enjoy.

Take a look through our programme of day schools and short courses - we are sure you will find something of interest. Our courses take place across two of our Kent campuses, Canterbury and Broadstairs, are non-accredited and to be enjoyed for their own sakes.

We are particularly delighted to be working in conjunction with the Sustainability team at Canterbury Christ Church University to offer a range of courses encouraging awareness of ecological issues , whether local, regional, national or international. CAE is bringing together specialists across a range of courses, so that you can choose to discuss the crucial issues facing us all today whilst learning how to build your own bread oven or make wine!

Some of our Creative Writing students have formed their own writing and performance group. As Canterbury Yarners, they appear at local literary festivals, including WhitLit and the Wise Words Festival, reading their own work. They are also hard at work on other projects, both individually and as a group. Find out more about Canterbury Yarners »
