About University of Chester

The University of Chester has been making history since 1839, when it was founded by such pioneers as the great 19th-century prime ministers, William Gladstone and the Earl of Derby and a former Archbishop of Canterbury.

It is one of the oldest English higher education establishments of any kind, pre-dating all but Oxford, Cambridge, London and Durham, and its original buildings in the ancient city of Chester were the first in the country to be purpose-built for the professional training of teachers.

Education degrees are now just a small part of the 477 course combinations on offer. The University of Chester has grown and changed radically to become the modern 21st century university that you see today. While we are still proud of the heritage on which the University is built, we are excited about creating new facilities, and have invested nearly £50 million in the Chester Campus, Kingsway Buildings and Riverside Campus in the last few years..
