With a town rich with history, full of tempting restaurants and cafes, and a charming warmth, Canterbury has a lot to offer. Everything is never more than 20 minutes away, but with so much to explore, you'll never get bored. The university is very welcoming and friendly, while ensuring that each student has the support they need for the huge leap into their degree. If you're looking for somewhere other than a hectic city and an isolated town, then Canterbury is here for that perfect in-between.
I would rate my overall best experience as 4 stars because the location is great! The course they offer are amazing and the staff are helping and welcoming. I would not have wanted to do my degree anywhere else. The library was brilliant.
This university is good, and with the change in leadership at the student union, I’m sure that the university will become excellent. I have enjoyed my time here. The well-being services are amazing, and extra support is given to anyone who needs it.
