University of Chester

Varied union activities City Campus

Ucas code: C55

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.

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.
