About the institution

The University of Chester was founded in 1839 as a Church of England teacher training college and gained university status in 2005. It continues to be guided by Christian values and welcomes students and staff of all faiths and none. Degrees in education are now just a small part of what is on offer, with nearly 500 courses in areas such health and social care, humanities, business and management and applied science. Based at five campuses in and around Chester and Warrington, it focuses on research projects with an emphasis on practical and cultural benefits, such as developing England’s first ‘carbon neutral’ village.
