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.
Education qualifications remain significant and are now a fraction of the 420 course combinations on offer. In the 20th Century, the institution steadily expanded its student numbers and the variety and nature of its courses, which range from Animation to Zoo Management.
As well as undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, a new range of foundation degrees and apprenticeship degrees combines conventional university study with learning at work.
The University of Chester is committed to the continued development of excellence in research and innovation. The research strengths range across the arts and humanities, business, leadership and management, education, health and social care, and the natural and social sciences.
The 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.

An accredited course is one which has been approved by a professional body.
