No one attends student union, waste of funding and too small to house any events that would spark any interest from students. Wifi is limited on what you can use it for and what device which makes tablets and iPads hard to utilise. Careers centre is unknown for its location and never hear from any one in it. But the clubs are good. £1 might!

Not quite what I expected from a university. While some aspects of the university are good (for example the ease of contacting lecturers if you require help, or module options that are available), the campus, to me, feels more like a college which isn't really what I was hoping for from my time at university. The lectures in first year occasionally seemed pointless and some of the tutors are not on the same level as students in terms of rapport and understanding, which is a big downfall. After discovering what other universities have to offer their students, CCCU does come across as a little disappointing.

I have had the WORST uni experience at Canterbury! my course was run appallingly! I can't believe I am contributing to such an awful university, poor organisation and even worse communication between not just staff to students but amongst staff themselves! thanks for nothing Canterbury.
