Chester university has helped me develop my skills as an engineer in a more real-world application. The campus in first year was fantastic but due to a recent move to a different site, science related facilities have been lacking but and developing slowly back to their initial standards.
The University of Chester is a good uni with a pretty campus. The Exton campus is quite small but has everything you need. There are a lot of societies and sports and the SU is very active. I personally don’t interact much with societies or the SU (hence 4 stars) but my limited experience with them has been great. Overall happy with my choice of UK uni as an international American student.
I dropped out after a year, the university campus was drab - really old lecture halls, and most things were broken (chairs, tables, etc.), although a few newer buildings made up for that a little bit. The courses are not stimulating at all, so if you're looking for a challenging intellectual degree you probably won't find it here. That being said, my friends there still love it - definitely visit before you go and see if the vibe fits.
The University of Chester feels out of touch with its students and sometimes even the staff. I can only speak for my Graphic Design course but I don’t feel that I have learnt a single thing and the University’s lack luster response to COVID has made this even worse. The course was a constant stream of tests and very little learning about the subject or necessary skills needed for entering the industry.
University as a whole is decent with more than enough facilities and multiple campuses specialising in different areas. Could have been more support available to students during the pandemic and clarity regarding timetables.
Decent university, especially if you're from a small town and can't hack a big city. I'd love to know more about what the student union actually does, and obviously clubs and societies haven't been on because of Covid. The campus WiFi is also a pain in the arse to log into but works great once you're on. Visit Chester, see if you like the city, if you like Chester, this uni will do you just fine
I do like the Uni. I feel like a lot more things could be improved though. For example lectures and students having a good relationship as I felt most the lectures act like I’m wasting their time. Apart from that I like chester uni
UOC is a university full of opportunities, from study abroad to exciting societies. I am studying at kingsway creative campus and the staff always strive for the best out of their students and take pride in what the students have created!
This university is amazing, honestly has the best staff. The staff are always willing to help what ever the time. After now finishing my accounting course the careers team have helped get me an amazing job lined up in London. And even if this job isn't for me, then Chester University have said the careers team will help relocate me. The Students Union is amazing and the clubs and societies are amazing, the best way to make friends.
I truly believe this is the best uni in the country! The staff are always on hand to give you any help. They support you for 3 years after you leave, to help you get the right job for you personally. The society's range from law to cheerleading and are all amazing and an excellent way to make new friends. I have never had a single problem with the wifi here, never down or faulty. And even the on campus accommodation isn't that bad as i lived at Grosvenor House during first year which was okay but can get a little lonely as i lived alone but the societies help with making friends and usually you find at least one person who lives there. Then i moved to the partnership accommodation called The Towpath for my last 2 years in Chester which haven't been the best and this is all due to the accommodation manager now. Under Fresh the towpath was amazing but now under Roost the new manager is rude and disgusting.
Campus has everything you need, close by. (Parkgate) Plenty of societies and clubs to join, there's definitely something for everyone if not create your own. SU is always full, especially with events on, nice, affordable food. Can't comment on the careers service as not used it yet however they send out regular emails.
The University is very small and easy to get around, the staff are all friendly and helpful and as a result of the size it doesn't take long to get around. The laundrette (8 washers and 8 dryers) is pathetic as it is shared between thousands of students so you may have to go in the early hours of the morning to spend £2.40 for a wash and £1.40 for a dry that doesn't dry. The SU is alright just a bit small with 2 pool tables and drinks are slightly expensive but then again everything is in Chester so it's probably the cheapest you're going to get. Placement of the main campus is great for reaching the centre as its a 5 minute walk. Not that there's much to do other than get groceries.
The premise staff are amazing, everything is always clean and working. The lectures are really interesting (English) It’s in a great city There’s a really diverse group of students which makes forming friendships much easier The Catholic society is my favourite and the catholic priest is amazing, very funny and kind and really makes you feel as if you matter.
Please don't apply for this Univerity. First they ask us to send the advance free, before the Skype interview. Then after 3 or 4 attempts they reject you and they will return the money after 4 or 5 months. Insane process
Best three years of my life at the University of Chester. Previously looked at other universities, but glad I chose this university as it has such a welcoming community. I studied Media and the lecturers were helpful and if I didn't understand a certain feedback comment/topic. The societies were fantastic and worked together with the sports teams. All campuses have a sense of community and you have so many opportunities with the chester difference award and careers and employability. Wish I studied my masters at this fantastic university!
the Campus is great, the wifi can be a bit dodgy sometimes, and wireless printers don’t really work, and game consoles can’t connect to the wifi, and with my fire tv stick you have to log in to the wifi every single time it goes off.
Chester Uni is a great place to study, people are really friendly, plenty of good quality private sector student houses which are much cheaper than halls, my group of friends have found a great property with Chester Student Rentals for the next academic year 2018/2019, all inclusive for under £100 per week.
Started a Postgraduate course (MRes). Very little help offered by both the department and the University for many things, such as the library, and even little things like parking. The department has no clear guidelines for the MRes program, blurring documentation from PhD and MA courses in a confusing and disorderly mess. Can't wait to submit my dissertation and finish, definitely regret choosing the University of Chester, they either need to scrap programs that have little support and very little guidance, or implement new resources that offer clear guidelines and support.
University of Chester is a great place to study, the campuses are all very close to each other so no need to bring your car, I have found a great private sector landlord called Chester Student Rentals.co.uk. They really look after you and their properties, check out their reviews on their website or Facebook page if you are looking for fantastic accommodation.
SU Fridays at the students union are the best, there's no need to go into town. SU has cheap drinks and good music. There are so many sports and societies on offer, attend as many free sessions as you can before commiting, also the nights out with any social are very messy
The university has a number of different facilities and services available to their student, however there can be a long waiting list. The improvements to main campus library are fab and on Queens Park Campus this provides all the relevant content in one place and it is easy to find.
Awful uni, especially for nursing. Inconsistent marking, blatant discrimination and bullying tactics used against those with extra needs. Very poorly put together course that often results in very little being gained from placement. In addition to this the expectations from work are not clear and communicated. Following the handbook is pointless as the lecturers ignore it. Overall a terrible uni
The university is great like the courses that people do are amazing, so are the societies the best parts about them are the social nights where everyone dresses up its brilliant. The wifi on the other hand not so great, on campus it's amazing like connectes brilliantly and works and everything but if your in accommodation especially not on campus then it can be a pain, like going off at 7pm for some unknown reason and then not coming back until your asleep at night.
The student union is the best, SU Fridays are the best night. The SU also has different nights on different days of the week which I really enjoy. The uni is also really small which means you see the same people everyday which makes it so much easier to make friends. The wifi can be a butt slow at times though but overall the campus and facilities are really good.
I'm not on the main campus I'm on queens park campus (the new business campus) and its really nice. Just been done up and opened so all pretty new just a bit of a trek away from the main campus and where most of the accommodation is. There is a free shuttle bus but it sets off at quarter past to get there on the hour and you can walk quicker than that, especially for me as I'm staying at sumner house so therefore I would have to set off at like 5 past to walk down to campus whereas if I walk straight to queens park I don't have to set off until twenty to.
I have had a great experience at the university. The facilities on campus are great (who doesn't love grabbing a quick Starbucks before walking to a lecture at 8.30am!) and the staff and members are all very nice and welcoming!
Chester is a really lovely University with both a homely and City feel. It is the right balance between the countryside & city life. This thing that appealed most to me is the amazing careers facility and how they constantly support you with enhancing your CV.
such a good community and atmosphere! The campus is quite small compared to other universities I've visited but i prefer this as it was quick to feel at home and settle in. chester is such a friendly city with great parks, shops and nightlife there are lots of students
I was nervous about starting University but Chester was so welcoming and made me feel like a person not just a number which was really appreciated. The city is great and I have enjoyed every moment of first year with no regrets, Bring on second year!
Great area with a brilliant town centre and good night life. The university uses god teaching and there is plenty of support avaliable should you need it. Many sports clubs and other societies are based at the university and are suitable for all abilities
