The facilities and education at this university are at a level you would expect them to be however, communication from staff is not of a good standard and clubs and societies are basically non-existent making the all around university experience more lonely and you find yourself not being involved with any events as you can see happening at other universities.
Studying at CCCU during the pandemic meant that joining societies and the student union wasn't possible. Most of the education I received was online and therefore I had little to no use of any facilities for a large portion of my first year.
Although this wasn’t my first choice university, i am overall very happy with it. It is close to home, the lecturers are really nice, i’ve made friends for life especially meeting people i never would have met because I took the foundation year. Campus is small but nice little areas to study, and big canteen. food is good. lecture halls and rooms are good. the library is perfect has lots of space and a group study area aswell as a quiet and silent zone. i joined pole fitness and met some amazing girls! the student union is nice but a bit pricey! I’ve met so many great people and i’m grateful for my experience so far! i have uni tuesday-thursday 11-3 not bad so it meant i was able to work part time. maybe it’s not the most highly ranked uni but i’ve had the best time so far! chemistry on a wednesday is the best!!!
I have two regrets in life and one of them is choosing Canterbury as my place to study. Three years of my life wasted! This university is a s****** as far as I’m concerned. The lecturer are crap(rude and unsupportive) and it really doesn’t prepare you adequately for a careeer in your field of study in my case finance. I graduated a year ago and still can’t find employment in any field. Graduating from CCCU gives you no edge. Wish I had research that side of things more thoroughly.I don’t know anyone I’ve graduated with working in what they studied. One guy I know is a cleaner and he graduated with a 2:1 degree. WISH I COULD HAVE MY MONEY BACK. One friend of mine quit in her final year which I was very disappointed about but turns out it was the best decision she made. A year later instead of going back to Canterbury she transferred to a London university. Her grades improved due to better support and she also got a job in finance during her final year of study due connections made by
Staff mentoring is a lot higher than I anticipated which is brilliant. IT services is brilliant and the library is cracking. However being a city university there can be distances to walk. Most is located on one campus, yet the library, some offices and even one lecture hall are a bit further away. Accommodation is located anywhere from 5 to 15 minute walk away. Wifi is great when working but, especially in accommodation, it drops fairly regularly. Parking in the area is shocking.
I have just finished my 3 years studying Psychology at Christ Church, and I enjoyed every moment of it. There really is a good community feel here, despite the fact it is technically not a campus uni. Accommodation is good and modern and close to uni! I’d 100% recommend joining a sport or society and getting involved!
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.
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.
