Being unable to come and visit us doesn't mean you can't experience what we have to offer. Our Virtual Open days give you a brilliant opportunity to find out about learning and living at Canterbury Christ Church University.
Our live events allow you to take a virtual walk around our Canterbury and Medway locations, find out about our courses and also to speak to our academics and current students. Best of all, they're easy – and free – to access from wherever you are!
Still need convincing? Well, here's six reasons to attend one of our Virtual Open Days.
That's the reason you're really here, right? Well, our Virtual Open Days will provide you with all the vital information you need to know before making a decision on which course is for you. Prospectuses can only tell you so much; hearing our teaching teams talk about what drives them, and how they can make your learning experience a fun an fulfilling one, is much more useful!
Virtual Open Days aren't a one-way street – you'll have the chance to ask questions and generally interrogate our team. Live Q&A sessions with academic staff can help you to get under the skin of a particular subject, whilst our student ambassadors can give you the low-down on what's good – whether that's about learning, the campus, the best pub or coffee shop... We're here to help!
Getting up early and taking a train to Canterbury or Medway is so last year. Thankfully, you'll be able to have a look around our historic locations from the comfort of your home, and even in your favourite pyjamas. Both Canterbury and Medway are brilliant locations for student life, so we'll show you the sights and places where you'll make lifelong memories.
Uni is as much about where you'll live as it is what you'll learn. We're very proud of our purpose-built student accommodation and want you to see just how good it is! We'll show you round, explain the benefits – like high-speed WiFi and fantastic locations – and help you to understand how easy it is to secure your place.
Fees and financing your studies; student support services; help for those with disabilities; careers... All of this stuff is so important and yet difficult to understand by reading web pages alone. At our Virtual Open Days we aim to turn the confusing into the straightforward, allowing you to start your student journey with a clear understanding of the practicalities of studying at uni.
Ok. So all of the points above are important, but if you're still not sure just think about it this way; it's almost zero effort to come to a Virtual Open Day. You can take part on your phone, tablet or laptop. In bed. Whilst eating Monster Munch. And it's totally free, apart from the Monster Munch. You can even go back and re-watch presentations after the event, so it's basically like Netflix...
