Valedictory is an end of year celebration to recognise the outstanding achievements of our students, and to say farewell as the academic year draws to a close. You can share your memories, photos and videos with us on social media using #UoCValedictory2021, or by emailing

"Summer term ends with the Valedictory and Awards Celebration, which recognises students’ achievemenst and successes ranging from academic excellence, to community service and volunteering activities, to participation in various areas of University life. Each year, Valedictory gives us a reminder of the enormous talent, experience and commitment of students. Students often remark on how much they have received from their time in Chester. They talk about gaining confidence; about achieving what they thought was beyond them; and about the ways in which University has prepared them for the excitement of what lies ahead." Peter Jenner, Senior Chaplain and Dean Of Chapel
