The University of Chichester has two campuses: one in the centre of Chichester, a charming and historic town, and the other close to the sea in Bognor Regis.
The university offers both taught and research degrees at postgraduate level, with many of the courses offering work placements during the year. There is a vast range of academic departments to choose from, including business, dance, humanities, music, sport and theatre.
Both sites are easily connected by a regular inter-campus bus service. Across the two sites, students have access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities including a sports centre, Engineering and Digital Technology Park, students’ union, a restaurant, a theatre and a Learning Resource Centre.
