    Behind the scenes at Storyhouse - Jordan's Work Based Learning

    Work Based Learning is a fantastic opportunity for our second year students to get some work experience in an area that they love. Enhancing your studies with skills learned in the real world will go a long way to making you more employable when you graduate.

    We're also really excited about the new Storyhouse arts centre that has opened in Chester.

    Tackling Hidden Course Costs - The Aspire Book Scheme

    Thursday 25th May

    Hidden course costs have always been an issue. You enrol at University, you pay the tuition fees for the year, and you get your maintenance loan and set up a budget for each term. Then on your first day of University you are given a reading list of books and course materials that are going to be essential for you to complete your degree!

    At the University of Chester we are doing everything we can to reduce these hidden expenses, and one of our most popular is the Aspire Book Scheme. We had one of our digital Ambassadors, Charlotte give us her take on the scheme.
