If you’ve submitted your application to study one of our courses, here's what happens next.

For most of our courses, we aim to return an offer within 48 hours of your application. Some of our courses - like our Professional Health programmes - require an interview, so there may be a longer wait due to their popularity and processing times.

If you've been made a university offer

Congratulations! We're looking forward to you joining our community. All you need to do now is reply and accept our offer via UCAS.

  • Firm acceptance - you can make Christ Church your first choice university.
  • A conditional offer usually means that your offer depends on you achieving a specific grade or level in your exams.
  • An unconditional offer is a formal acceptance that means you have satisfied all the academic entry requirements such as qualifications.
  • Insurance acceptance - you can make Christ Church your back-up choice to your firm decision.
  • Decline - you can decide to not accept your offer. If you change your mind and want to apply for a different course, you can add more choices via UCAS Extra or apply through Clearing if the course has vacancies.

If you don’t understand your offer, please contact us! We're happy to help and guide you through the application process.

Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we get asked:

How do I know if I've been offered a place at CCCU?

Once you've applied to your chosen universities, it's time to wait for their replies. You should regularly check your UCAS Hub.

It's also important to ensure that your contact details are up to date so they can keep in touch with you. Be sure to regularly check your emails - if your university choices have sent any correspondence and you haven't replied, they may withdraw your offer.

Will I need to provide evidence of my qualifications?

Yes, we recommend that you locate your certificates early so that when you are asked to provide them, this does not hold up your application or enrolment process. For any qualifications you are currently undertaking, we can accept a statement of results or official, signed confirmation from your place of education of the grades received.

Even if you've received an unconditional offer, it's best to have your qualifications to hand just in case they're needed at any point.

Will I need to provide ID?

Yes, we will require photo ID such as a passport or driving license.

What if I want to change my first choice to CCCU?

If you've chosen Canterbury Christ Church University as your insurance choice and you want to change this to your firm choice, you can easily do this once your offers come through.

Don't worry - you can always change your mind when it comes to responding to your offers.

Applied for a part-time or postgraduate course?

If you've applied for a part-time or postgraduate course directly to the University, the UCAS deadlines won't apply to your application.

We'll keep in touch with you via email to let you know if we require any further information, if we need to invite you to an interview or audition, and to update you on the status of your application.

Applying from outside the UK?

If you’re applying from outside the UK, you may require a VISA to study with us. We will contact you with the relevant steps to take if this applies to you.
