Sorry for interrupting, but there is something we need to tell you…
The University of Chester has an amazing community spirit. This is due to smaller lecture groups and excellent support services, so you are always a name not a number. All of this is set on beautiful campuses, with the main site just a 10 minute stroll from the historic city of Chester. Our graduates are among the north-west's most employable.

This is the mean satisfaction rating from final-year students taking this subject here according to the National Student Survey. We’ve analysed the levels of overall satisfaction against other universities offering this subject to be able to say whether this figure is high, typical or low. <br /><br /><strong>Tip</strong>: this rating offers you a glimpse into what students on the ground think about things such as the quality of facilities and teaching on the course. <a href="/advice/what-do-student-satisfaction-scores-really-tell-you"><em>What do student satisfaction scores tell you?</em></a>

This is the average salary graduates were earning six months after leaving this university according to the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
