For more than 50 years, Canterbury Christ Church University has been a big part of the Kent community, providing education which makes a real and positive difference to people’s lives. Our world-famous city warmly welcomes thousands of visitors and students from across the globe every year, and we are fast becoming a major cultural contributor in the South East.
Over 1,200 of our students regularly compete in a variety of sports with other universities and our Sport Scholarships scheme supports around 40 talented young athletes every year, including international competitors. The University is the main sponsor of the Kent Women’s Cricket team and has partnerships with a range of local and regional clubs and organisations, including Polo Farm Sports Club in Canterbury where the University has invested £2m to develop a new indoor sports centre and teaching space for our students and club members. This venue enhances our existing facilities which include our own city-based sports centre and gym, and the picturesque playing fields at Stodmarsh.
