With so many universities to choose from, it can be quite difficult to find the perfect fit for you. Each institution will give you a different experience and you'll leave with a wildly different set of memories. Chester has a lot of quirks and unique qualities that many other universities can’t match. That’s one of the reasons why we’re ranked 15th in The Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017!

We’ve listed a few things we think you’ll need below:

About this time last year, as part of a staff profile on myself, I was asked to comment on the new phenomenon known as Pokémon GO, which saw hordes of young (and old) players roaming the streets, staring intently at their mobile phones (more so than usual) catching elusive digital creatures in a new augmented reality game. I joined them for a couple of weeks, and the knowing nod of a fellow player across a road became almost a common rite of friendship born out of the often solitary pursuit of gaming.

With Wimbledon over, the Tour de France in full swing, Euro 2017 going strong and the 2017 PGA Golf Open starting this week, another summer of sport is now well underway. If you love playing sport or just watching it, maybe it’s time to consider a career in it?
The University of Chester offers a wide range of sports-related courses, designed to help you develop your own performance and give you the skills you need to develop others. You can be involved with sport in ways you may not have thought of before.
