"When we talk about inclusivity we must first accept difference and alternative perspectives. I am innovative as it's the only way I can associate with a learning process and the learner.

Christ Church has allowed me through both the PGCAP and my Masters (distinction) to understand my value as a lifelong learner. I feel a duty to do this for others."


Great job prospects

We make sure our graduates are prepared for life after uni. We work closely with local and national employers to ensure our graduates are always in demand. Our success in this area speaks for itself:
