Transforming our city campus
We have an exciting vision to transform our Canterbury Campus, opening contemporary spaces for learning, teaching and research, while celebrating the city’s rich heritage.
Our University started out as a teacher training college in the 1960s. Today we continue to shape our courses and research around critical social issues.
We pursue excellence in higher education: transforming individuals, creating knowledge, enriching communities and building a sustainable future.
This sets our aims and objectives and enables us to build on our strengths and deliver measurable outcomes and impact, in the context of our mission and values.
We are an important part of Kent and Medway’s past and are key to its successful future.
Over the decades, we have connected with thousands of organisations and people, positively impacting on millions of lives.
