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).
