welcome to CHESTER

Chester is situated in the heart of the North West of England. Our Chester campus is set in 14 acres of beautiful parkland, just outside the city.

About Chester

Studying at our Chester campus provides you with the perfect combination of a historic city with modern amenities, and the campus is just 10 minutes from Chester’s city centre. The cobble stone streets of this Roman-walled city are home to a range of great restaurants, bars and pubs to keep you entertained day or night. The campus will remain on its current site in Christleton until the summer of 2021.

Our library at Chester gives you access to software that makes it easier for you to find the legal journals, cases and articles you’ll need during your studies. All workshop rooms are designed to encourage classroom discussions and debates, using technology to allow interactive, engaging sessions to be delivered across all our courses.

As a student at this campus, you will have Associate Student status at The University of Chester’s Student’s Union, meaning you can use their facilities and join in with their societies. With an outdoor seating area, orchard and on-site cafe, there’s plenty of space to socialise with friends or prepare for your next lecture on our campus.

Our dedicated employability team, based both locally and nationally, can help you to obtain work experience and pro bono opportunities to help you boost your CV.

At Chester, our tutors and staff are dedicated to helping you achieve your education and career ambitions. If you’re studying law with us, you will be able to benefit from our tutors’ experience as over 90% of them are qualified lawyers.

Please note that we do not currently sponsor students on the Student Route of the Points Based System at The University of Chester. If you require a Student Route visa to study at the University, why not consider applying to study at one of our other locations nationwide? Visit our visa requirements page for more information.
