At Christ Church Business School we understand that the best way to learn is by doing. We recently ran a 'Crisis Simulation Day' for students taking our Public Relations module. Over 90 students took part in the event, which simulated a real life public relations crisis, which the students had to react to in 'real time'. You can watch a video of the day below:
All of our courses have been designed to cover the current issues in business, and we draw on both national and international case studies to support our teaching. Our courses are relevant to all our students, and will encourage you to apply the theories that you learn to real life examples from across the globe. You can also find out more about life as an international student at CCCU.
At Christ Church Business School you will have access to first class facilities to help you with your studies. These include high quality learning resources, computing equipment and our excellent library network.
We have recently opened a Bloomberg Trading Room – one of only a handful of such rooms available in the UK. Here students can gain practical experience of trade floor activities, drawing on live financial market data and analytics.
Most of our courses are held at our Canterbury campus – a vibrant location that is only a few minutes’ walk from the city centre. Canterbury is a world-heritage site, rich in culture, and is also one of the safest cities in the UK. Meanwhile, our Broadstairs campus is within easy reach of local shopping centres, and only a short bus ride away from the beautiful seaside town.

Marketing and Advertising Graduate
"Graduating from Canterbury Christ Church University was certainly a proud moment, which marked an end to an incredible three-years of my life.
I studied Marketing with Advertising Management because it combined a mix of the subjects I found most interesting. The course certainly taught me the diverse knowledge and skills I needed to thrive in the competitive and demanding creative industries, and it showed me the wide range of career options that were available to me.
University provided a supportive environment with inspiring lecturers, all with a vast range of knowledge and experience to share. The knowledge I gained from my time at University has been invaluable.
I embarked on a career in PR the day after my final exam and have not stopped learning and progressing since. As an account manager, I now manage a portfolio of clients operating in a diverse range of industries alongside a team of executives. Time management, attention to detail and creativity are all a vital part of what I do.
I travel to attend meetings and events across Europe and rarely spend an entire week in the office. A career in PR is sure to deliver new and exciting challenges every day."
