    My name is Stephanie. I wanted to enquire the official starting date for the Bsc Social Work course at Canterbury Christ Church university 2016. The time for registration? The time for accommodation? The time for fresher week?

    I just wanted to speak with people who will be on the Bsc Social Work course at Canterbury Christ Church University and get to know them.


    I just went onto the cccu website to check out dates for myself, and saw this - it may be of interest to you. However, I thought nurses and social workers did longer at uni than the rest of the degrees, so it may be inaccurate.

    Hi again,

    Just spoke to an undergraduate friend - they started 7th September last year! I thought they did longer... I think a phone call may be required to check.

    Thank you so much mld. was the 7th of September - the day of registration or the day of fresher's week?

    7th was registration day, and beginning of the course. Freshers week starts after that - due to the length of the professional courses. Freshers' week is the same for everyone.- but you'll also have lectures, just lots of parties etc as well.

    I'm at the uni doing my PhD, and we don't even stop for the summer! You will have summer holidays though.

    Look at this page

    it says when the social work course starts, (5th Sept) and when the other degrees start - that's when freshers week will be.

    Have you got accommodation sorted yet? I really hope that you enjoy your course.
