Hello!

My name is Jonathan and I work for Canterbury Christ Church University. I studied Sport and Exercise Science at the University and graduated in June 2013.

If you have any questions about studying at the University, what Canterbury and student life is like, or if there is anything else you might like to know, please get in touch!

I will regularly check the forum and try to respond to any of your queries as quickly as I can, though please bear in mind I only work Monday-Friday – so I won’t be able to respond to any new posts over the weekend. Additionally, due to the nature of my role, I am often away from the office.

For questions that you may not want to publicly post in the forum, feel free to PM me!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Anna,

There are over 50 sports/societies at CCCU.

Sports:
http://ccsushop.co.uk/sports-membership-6-c.asp

Societies:
http://ccsushop.co.uk/society-membership-7-c.asp

Any student can also set up their own sports club or society if it doesn't already exist.

During 'freshers' week, students have the opportunity to sign up to whatever sport or society they want to join. Additionally, if you want to join a club but don't want to play or you're injured you can still become a social member of a society. It also doesn't matter what ability you are, anybody can join a team.

I would really recommend to anyone at university to join a sports team or society. Joining a sports club was one of the highlights of my time at uni -it's a good way to make friends and it's great fun. Wednesday afternoons are dedicated to sport, and Universities compete against eachother before social events on Wednesday evenings. There's also been a lot of investment in the facilities, with a brand new sports centre and Students Union.

During the first week of March there is 'Varsity' where every sports team of CCCU compete against the University of Kent. It's one of the biggest varsities in the country and theres a great 'buzz' around the city. If the weather is good there's usually quite large crowds supporting each uni.

Additionally, if you want to get involved with sport but don't want to commit to joining a sports team. You can get involved with Trysport which gives you the opportunity try a sport in a friendly, relaxed environment with the focus on having a laugh and learning new skills. Over the past two years over 2000 people got involved!

Hi Kel,

Like other university cities, the night life in Canterbury is really good. There are three universities in Canterbury (CCCU, University of Kent and UCA), so throughout the week there are numerous 'student nights' to keep up with the demand! In recent years, it has got even better as the new Students Union at St Georges has opened.

Canterbury also has the most pubs and clubs per square mile in the whole of the UK so there is a huge variety!

Canterbury is also the second safest university city in the UK too!

Hi this might be a weird question, as I know you didn't study the subject, but do you know what facilities are available to Geography students, as this wasn't made very clear on an open day or on the university's website. Thanks!

Hi, Sunday 14th September will be our first week, though this is usually a little quieter, with the main week starting Saturday 20th September.

Full information will be posted on our Students' Union website nearer the time: http://ccsu.co.uk/

Hi Alice,

In addition to the facilities available to all University students (the computing and library facilities), Geography students have access to a specialist computing laboratory which we use for GIS work. This is in close proximity to our Resource Centre which holds additional specialist reference material that supports and adds to the material available in the library. The Resource Centre contains stocks of maps and air photographs which we use in our teaching. It also has additional computers that are only available to Geography students and this area tends to form the core of the programme since most staff offices are close by and there is an IT technician who is available to assist when (or if) students have computing problems.

We also have a soils laboratory that is shared with the Science programmes, but which is used by the Biogeography and Landscape Ecology module. It can also be used by dissertation students.

Hope this helps!

Great thanks for explaining that, that's really helpful!
