There are also more than 100 active societies and sports teams running at the University, many of which are internationally focused, providing endless opportunities to make new friends.

The University of Chester offers more than 300 degrees across our 8 faculties in 8 different campuses around Chester, Warrington and Shrewsbury. The University of Chester was awarded Silver status in the UK government first ever Teaching Excellence Framework ranking released in 2017, and we are committed to maintaining high academic standards. The quality of our educational provision has been praised by higher education evaluators such as QAA and OFSTED.

As for the city of Chester itself, it is a modern and contemporary city, rich in history and culture. One of eight world-famous British Heritage cities, Chester welcomes over 8M tourists each year with a wide variety of attractions. Ideally placed in the North West, it is less than an hour from Manchester and Liverpool, just a two-hour direct train journey to London and close to both the beautiful Welsh coast and mountains. The ancient Roman walls still surround Chester’s city centre, which along with the renowned Cathedral, Eastgate Clock, and Roman Amphitheatre, demonstrate its 2000-year-old heritage.
