      Canterbury Christ Church has a brand new Student Union Bar just 5 minutes away from campus that's big and friendly with lovely seating areas, great affordable food and drink and friendly student staff. However if you're looking for an on campus place to just sit and chat with friends the grassy areas all over campus offer benches and nearby vending machines in addition to great views of the well kept flower beds and campus buildings. Every building has a couple of comfortable seating areas to relax in whilst waiting between lectures and there are at least three cafe's in ranging size dotted around campus. If none of this interests you, Canterbury highstreet is less than five minutes walk away offering an abundance of restaurants, cafe's, pubs, bars, clubs, coffee shops and cinemas.

      Accommodation

      The accommodation on my first year was very poor but it has now been improved. Houses to rent were expensive and landlords do not really accommodate well for students you will find you have the bear minimum and just overall very bad.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
