Why Postgraduate Research?

Choosing a research degree is an important decision – whether you’re currently in full or part-time study, pursuing your career and aiming to boost your potential, or considering academia.

Choosing your research degree

You can study for a research degree with us full or part-time. In fact, many of our researchers are professionals who have returned to study part-time.

We offer four postgraduate degrees at Christ Church:

An open and welcoming research culture

Canterbury Christ Church University has around 220 research students (2013/14) registered on full-time and part-time research degrees. Most are studying at our Canterbury Campus.

Being part of a small, friendly research community, at the heart of which is our Graduate School , offers you many benefits. You’ll always have direct access to personal support, opening up opportunities for in-depth academic discussion and interaction, not just within your field of study but across the range of academic disciplines.

Unique opportunities and dedicated facilities

We encourage personal, creative research subjects, giving you the opportunity to pursue research degrees that you wouldn't find anywhere else.

We offer a dedicated room on campus for research students, where you will have exclusive 24-hour access to IT facilities and other resources.

All our research degrees are managed by the Graduate School which is based on our Canterbury Campus.

A supportive community

The Graduate School provides an academic support environment and research students run the Postgraduate Research Association providing great social and academic opportunities, plus mentoring and support. Find out more about our research community.
