What our Students Say

Our archaeology programmes attract local, national, and international students who graduate with extremely wide ranging transferable skills. Each year they tell us how we’re doing and here’s what they think.

The range of skills our students leave CCCU with is reflected in their diverse career and further study paths, such as:

  • English Heritage
  • Commercial archaeology (including Canterbury Archaeological Trust, York Archaeological Trust, and Wessex Archaeology)
  • Postgraduate study (including in cultural heritage, forensic anthropology, osteoarchaeology, and maritime archaeology)
  • Local government
  • Teaching in the UK and abroad

“I graduated with a degree in History with Archaeology. In August I began working with English Heritage to assist in the preservation of historically significant sites across England. My degree has helped me immensely; from providing the skills and knowledge to succeed whilst promoting independence and self-motivation.”

“Applying to study archaeology at Canterbury Christ Church University is without doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made. As a mature student the thought of going back into education was daunting, but the Programme Team is really friendly and welcoming. The lectures and seminars are engaging, and with the support you get from the lecturers you never feel stuck or alone. The archaeological programme is challenging, accessible and above all interesting and enjoyable! I have learnt so much in my first year and I know that my new knowledge is transferable and will open up many new doors for me.”
