A new university guide has shown that Canterbury Christ Church is one of the top ten safest universities in England and Wales.
The Complete University Guide has published a study of student-relevant crime within a three mile radius of campuses at 103 universities across the country. It showed that Canterbury Christ Church is the second safest university in the South East and the eighth safest in England and Wales.
Professor Sue Piotrowski, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic) at Canterbury Christ Church University, said: “We are delighted to see that Canterbury Christ Church has been identified as the second safest University in the South East, and eight nationally in England and Wales. Students increasingly recognise the importance of feeling safe at University and how this can benefit their overall learning experience.”
In 2011 Canterbury was named as the safest student city in England and Wales. For the first time, this year The Complete University Guide has published crime figures for all universities in England and Wales. In past years it has focused on cities with two or more universities.
