The University of Chester has been making history since 1839, when it was founded by such pioneers as the great 19th-century prime ministers, William Gladstone and the Earl of Derby, and a former Archbishop of Canterbury.
Our academic departments are grouped into seven distinct faculties, along with a Graduate School and faculty-based research centres, for those wishing to gain a qualification by research.
The University of Chester is committed to the continued development of excellence in research and innovation. Our research strengths range across the arts and humanities, business, leadership and management, education, health and social care, and the natural and social sciences.
Our portfolio contains both work that is at the leading edge of its subject discipline and research which brings about changes to policy, practice and services which benefit the economic, social and cultural well-being of our region and the wider community.
Our students benefit from a supportive Careers and Employability service which provides a variety of employability-enhancing experiences through the curriculum, employer contact, tailored group sessions and individual advice and guidance.
Careers and Employability delivers an inclusive and impartial service which is tailored to your personal goals and aspirations. Our aim is to enable you to develop as an individual and contribute to the business and community in which you will live and work.
Our on-campus facilities include a Learning Resource Centre, modern lecture theatres, open-access computer facilities, state-of-the-art science/skills/language laboratories, a range of catering outlets, the £2 million Chester Students’ Union centre and CSU bar/club, bookshop, chapel and faith space, cashpoint and launderette.
