University in The Economist's top 30 for value
07 August 2017
The Economist has ranked Canterbury Christ Church in the top 30 universities providing ‘most value for their students’.
According to The Economist, “most published rankings tell you a great deal about an institution’s reputation…however, they don’t necessarily answer the question that prospective students really care about: what they have to gain by attending”.
The statistical model devised by The Economist, estimated how much graduates from each university can expect to earn. It compared these estimates to actual earnings. Canterbury Christ Church University came in at 29th for ‘valued added by the institution’.
The University has a strong track record of graduates gaining employment and embracing new careers after their studies.
