    Discover the University of Chester

    The University of Chester’s academic roots stretch back over 175 years, making us one of the oldest providers of higher education in the country. Across our specialised sites, we provide an extensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, and work hard to offer students a life-changing experience in a creative, caring and encouraging environment.

    Through our integrated practical element in degree courses, we aim to develop your experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. We also have a number of opportunities to put your studies in to practice around the globe! At Chester, we aim to provide you with an amazing student experience, and the freedom and support to develop into a unique and highly employable graduate.

    And if you’re wondering about the social aspects of Chester, our award winning Chester Students’ Union actively organises events throughout the year, and has over 100 clubs and societies to get involved with. With most sites based only a short distance from the city centre of Chester or the town centre of Warrington, both locations offer a vibrant, cultural and thriving scene for you to enjoy – day or night!
