  • University of Chester guide

    Originally founded as the first purpose-built teacher training college in the UK in 1839, the University of Chester was originally affiliated with the University of Liverpool until it was given the right to award its own degrees in 2005.

    Currently there are four campuses: three in Chester and one in Warrington, the latter of which is home to the media, sports and management courses. In addition to these courses, the University of Chester covers subjects in humanities, sciences and healthcare.

    The main campus has a mix of Victorian and modern buildings, including a Gothic-style chapel and has a strong community vibe.
