From a teaching college established in 1839, to becoming the University of Chester in 2005, over 180 years of academic growth has allowed the University to offer an extensive selection of postgraduate courses and research options across a number of specialist sites. This includes five sites in and around Chester, a campus in Warrington, a University Centre in Shrewsbury, and a new health and nursing education facility, Marriss House, in Birkenhead. Through the work of academic staff, students and collaborators, the University has been identified as having world-leading research in 14 areas of the University’s research activity (Research Excellence Framework, 2014), and was voted in the top 10 nationally for Postgraduate Research (Postgraduate Research Experience 2018).
