Canterbury Christ Church University has a student population of over 20,000, studying a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across four faculties (Education, Health and Wellbeing, Social and Applied Science, Arts and Humanities). Based in Canterbury, with two other campuses across Kent, the University is the largest centre of higher education in Kent and Medway for public services – notably teacher training, nursing, policing, health and social care and career guidance and counselling.
The University has established a national and a growing international reputation as a leading research, training, and consultancy body. In the 2014 UK-wide Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise, nearly 90% of the university’s research was recognised as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally significant’. In 2018, our Teacher Education Improvement Project in Palestine, funded by the World Bank, won the Times Higher Education 1 Award for International Impact and was recognised by the World Bank for excellence and for its potential to be replicated in other regions where teacher training is an essential component of strengthening higher education systems. The international and national reputation for cybercrime and forensic policing is very attractive to international partners who are seeking to build capacity in their security services as well as those wishing to engage in research area.
University’s priority areas of interest for building partnerships in the MENA region:
- Teaching and learning, including transnational education (dual and joint degrees, franchise, articulation and validation partnerships)
- Research and innovation
- Student/staff mobility
- English language training and CPD
