Follow your passion, share your interest, broaden your horizons, discover something new, develop your skills and make life-long friends at Christ Church through a range of opportunities both on campus and online.
We know that starting university can feel daunting, especially when it comes to meeting new people and making friends. Here are some ways to get started:
Postgraduate student? Make sure you check out the Postgraduate pages for more information on connecting with the Graduate College and joining the Postgraduate community before you arrive.
Studying at Medway Campus? Christ Church Students' Union is here for all students at Christ Church, no matter what campus you're on. Plus, they work closely with the other SUs at the Medway Campus, so you can make the most of the partnership through a range of events and opportunities - including a full range of activities during Welcome Week.
As a Christ Church student, you automatically become a member of the Students’ Union and the Union is keen to support and represent you. Their Union council includes black and minority ethnic, disabled, international, LGBT, transgender, mature, women, postgraduate and placement officers to ensure a diverse student voice is heard and everyone has their say.
Why not get involved in a society or sports club while at university? Explore a variety of societies- from gaming, show choir and film to academic societies such as nursing and history- as well as over 30 different sports clubs! Joining a club or society is a great way to make friends, try something new and gain wider experience.
You can also enjoy the wide range of events Christ Church SU host throughout the year, both virtual and physical, including their Freshers’ Week activities.
The Careers and Enterprise team can support you in:
Christ Church Sport and Active Health offer all students an extensive range of sport and fitness opportunities at affordable prices. Whether it’s starting a fitness class, going to the gym or trying a new activity, there’s something for everyone both in person and online.
At Christ Church, we’re passionate about sustainability, and there are lots of ways you can get involved in supporting the University and the Students’ Union to be a better, more energy-efficient, environmentally conscious and sustainable place to study. Whether you join the Eco Student Society or become a member of the Student Green Office, there are plenty of ways to play your part.
At CCCU we expect respect. Canterbury Christ Church University and the Students’ Union believe all staff and students have the right to live, study and work in a safe and supportive environment, free from discrimination, bullying or harassment of any form.
