Open Days

Open Days are the ideal opportunity for prospective students to visit before submitting an application.  All areas of our campuses will be open for you to get a real feel for student life at Chester.  You’ll be able to attend subject sessions, speak with staff and students, view accommodation and explore our campuses and facilities. 

Please note that these pages enable you to view and book Open Days at our campuses in Chester and Warrington.  If you are interested in a course based at University Centre Shrewsbury, please refer to the University Centre Shrewsbury website.

Campus Tours

Campus tours are available throughout the year on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons. If you are unable to attend an Open or Applicant Day, guided campus tours provide an opportunity to view either the Parkgate Road or Warrington Campus. 

You’ll be shown around general facilities including the library, Students’ Union and fitness suite. While we can discuss student accommodation with you, please note we don’t usually have access to accommodation outside of Open Days and Applicant Days. Campus tours do not include academic departments, however you may wish to arrange an appointment directly with your department for the day of your visit.

Applicant Days

Applicant Days offer the opportunity to visit after submitting an application. They are designed to enable you to find out everything you need to help with your decision: your chance to spend time with subject tutors in your department, as well as exploring the wider University, accommodation and our support services. You will be invited to an Applicant Day if you receive an offer for a place on one of our undergraduate courses not requiring an interview.
