Is it generally a good uni, what's the student life and making friends like? Also, what are the student hallways like and is it really costly? Thanks in advance,

Emily

Hi Emily,

You might find the student life section on our website useful. You will be able to see what there is to do in Chester.

Take a look at #MyChesterStory this offers a true insight into student life at Chester as much of the content is generated by students themselves.

We have over 100 clubs and societies at Chester and these are a great way to meet people and make new friends. There's also lots of events during induction week which help new students to settle in and make friends.

There is a range of accommodation available to suit all budgets, view our accommodation options online. There's a short video giving you an overview of accommodation at Chester, you can also click on the various types of accommodation and see pictures and 360 degree videos of some of the halls of residence.

Hope that helps!

How dificult is it to get into Chester? I'm an international student applying in the next few weeks (sooner than later) and just wanting to know if I'll for sure get in or not

1. I'm working with across the pond(since they partner and get people in to schools their affiliated with)

2)my sat's were Highest in a 1600 scale is 950 Highest in a 2400 scale is 1470 560 critical reading 390 math 520 writing

3)I took 6 ap's got a's and b's on them but only got a 3 on one exam

4)tutored for a company, volunteered for 40+ hours, secretary and VIP for clubs and such

5) gpa 2.8888 would be 3.0 if I didn't fail algebra freshman year

6) I'm applying for international relations and affairs with French honors and really want to take Japanese as well with political science and learning diplomacy and stuff like that and transferred high schools to go to a international based school with an program that specialized in that and got my certificate for completing that program.

I took two years off after grad because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and how to go about it, I didn't want to go somewhere local and waste money doing some random degree and decided to move across the country to a state I'd never been before and I did take community classes but only this year after visiting England This past summer and after many years of being into and studying up on Brit culture and things like that actually being there was mental! And slowly but surely (it's been on my mind for the past year now) it's been my firm discision to go to uni four 3 years in the U.K..(sorry this is super long just wanted to put this out there and see others opinions on my chances!)

On average how quick do you receive a response regarding your application? I'm going mad checking my email each day after sending my application via UCAS as I know already Chester is my first choice. Sorry to appear pushy it's just exciting times!

Hello,

You should have received a leaflet through the post detailing what will happen on the day of your interview.

Your selection day will include the following:
A numeracy test
A presentation which provides you with information about the University and the Midwifery programme
An individual interview

The guidance notes that have been posted out to you give more details about the interview and what you can expect.

Do you have any other questions?

Hi! How long do Chester Uni take to reply? I know some people have already asked this, but it's getting really late now. All of my other universities have replied, but Chester is the only one I want to go to, so I'm trying to be patient, but I'm starting to get really, really anxious.
Thank you!

Hi! I have applied to Chester as an international student and I have made my offer from UofChester my firm choice about a week ago. I'm just curious about what comes next. Should I be expecting an email from the university or a confirmation that they have received my reply? I'm just curious about what I should do next.
