We have grants, scholarships and bursaries to help make University affordable and living costs achievable. Unlike student loans, you don't need to pay back these awards.
When you confirm your place at CCCU and have applied for your Student Loan you will be automatically allocated a grant of up to £600 a year if you meet the qualifying criteria set out below.
It’s therefore essential that you provide the Student Loans Company with consent to share your household income information with the University.
To qualify for the Canterbury Christ Church University Grant, students must:
Students who meet the eligibility criteria and are paying the standard full-time undergraduate tuition fees of £9,250 will be entitled to the full £600 grant.
If you're studying a course where tuition fees are less than £9,250, a foundation year or foundation degree, then the amount you receive will be less than £600. The exact sum will be calculated on a pro-rata basis depending on the fee you're paying.
If you're a part-time student studying a course with tuition fees in excess of £4,625, the amount you receive will be calculated on a pro-rata basis depending on the fee you're paying.
Please note: If you live in our University-owned accommodation, 50% of the grant you receive will be automatically allocated towards the cost of your accommodation. There is also the option to allocate the total amount towards your accommodation payment.
You'll be contacted by the Student Fees team with information about the option to allocate the total amount of your Grant towards your accommodation payment once you start University.
Once you've been awarded a Canterbury Christ Church University Grant, you will be notified of the amount and when your Grant payments will be made to you.
We offer a Care Leavers Bursary of £3,600 cash award over your first three years of study (£1,200 per academic year).
