“The University of Chester is a public university located in Chester, England. The university originated as the first purpose-built teacher training college in the UK. As a university, it now occupies five campus sites in and around Chester, one in Warrington, and a University Centre in Shrewsbury. It offers a range of foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as undertaking academic research.

The university is a member of AACSB, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the Cathedrals Group, the North West Universities Association and Universities UK. It holds an overall Silver Award in the 2023 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

A 2021 article in Times Higher Education described the University of Chester as being the fifth-oldest higher education establishment in England, with only the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham and London predating it.

Teaching & Learning
With an ambition to deliver a premium, personalised and purposeful student experience, there are three fundamental and guiding principles that underpin our approach teaching and learning.

With a rich research culture at the University, students benefit from studying on a course that is research and practice-informed, helping them to become highly valuable and knowledgeable specialists within their chosen area of study.

With social and immersive learning collectively helping to foster a sense of community and offering our students real-world opportunities, this contributes to helping our students to become ‘World Ready’ graduates of the University.

With assessments often mirroring tasks our graduates might undertake in the workplace, this ensures our graduates are ready for the world of work.”
