Managing your money

Your time at University should be enjoyable and rewarding, and Canterbury Christ Church University aims to provide you with the information and support that will enable you to get the best out of your University experience.

In particular, it is important that your time here is not spoiled by unnecessary financial worries.  Things to consider before coming to University include: managing your money, budgets and student bank accounts.

We do want to remind everyone that your Student Finance will only be awarded once you have completed enrolment.  You will need some money to last until your first instalment is paid.
