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.

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.

Accommodation

All international study abroad students are guaranteed university accommodation. We have a range of accommodation options, both on campus and immediately surrounding. You can find additional information on our semi and self-catered properties within the Accommodation section.

Fees and Funding

If you you join us through a partner institution or ISEP Exchange, you will continue to pay the tuition fees of your home institution. If you apply via ISEP Direct, any additional costs are outlined on the ISEP website.
