Economic impact

Universities make a great impact on the UK economy, producing graduates with skills, ideas and talent, and research which is pioneering for the future. They are also big businesses, generating billions of export earnings for the UK and employing hundreds of thousands of people across the country.

Christ Church contributes to this flourishing knowledge economy every year and is proud to make a difference regionally, nationally and internationally. We directly support local businesses and tourism by bringing thousands of students and their families into the region, helping the South East remain vibrant.

In 2014/15 Canterbury Christ Church University and its students helped the regional economy flourish:

  • £544M Impact on the South East economy
  • £324M Impact on the Canterbury economy
  • We helped create 4,006 additional jobs outside the University
