The University of Chichester is a globally competitive higher education institution, located across two campus sites in the vibrant city of Chichester and the beautiful coastal town Bognor Regis. Both of Chichester’s campuses are well-located for access to local services and attractions, and benefit from great transport links. The University of Chichester prides itself on actively celebrating the unique characteristics of every single student and offering a valuable, community-led student experience. To really get a taste for the university, students will be able to attend one of four open days across the year. This will allow them to tour the campuses and talk one-to-one with teaching staff and current students from their potential course to get a sense of what it is like to live and study there.
