The University of Chester welcomes study abroad students from all over the world each year. Our Study Abroad programme ensures students are immersed into the local environment and live and study alongside UK and other international students.

Study Abroad allows international students attending one of our partner institutions or a member of the ISEP network to study at the University of Chester for a semester or a full academic year. This gives students the opportunity to experience University life abroad, all while earning degree credits at their home institution.

Course Options

With 8 academic faculties and over 30 departments, there is no shortage of course options. The modules you can take will vary depending on the programme and level of study, but please contact your institution's Study Abroad office for further details on the available courses.

Before arrival, students will be given a link which will enable them to find when all available modules are running.  They are then expected to create their own timetable.  This entails thoroughly working through the module times for lectures, seminars, etc, and finding modules that fit together without clashes.  This is an expectation of students and thus the co-ordinator will only be able to facilitate the process.

Please note, students joining us on a full year exchange will have a greater range of course options than those coming for a semester abroad.
