Canterbury Christ Church University
Christ Church College was founded in 1962 at a time of teacher shortage. Classes were originally held in the Priory next to St Martin's Church.
The campus for Christ Church College was constructed on North Holmes Road.
In the early 1970s, the first degree programme, the Bachelor of Education, was established. In 1977 the College began to offer joint honours degrees in other subjects. In the late 1980s the College was substantially enlarged by the addition of Health Studies.
In 1995, the College was awarded the power to grant its own degrees for taught courses, which entitled the change of name to Canterbury Christ Church University College.
In 2000 the Broadstairs campus was opened and in 2004 the Medway campus was opened.
The award of University title in 2005 recognised both the successful delivery of high quality degree programmes and the achievements of students and staff.
