These activities vary but currently include Student Union societies, Film Festivals, cultural celebrations, gallery and museum visits as well as exhibitions.  Below you can see a selection of these events.


CSU Societies are a brilliant way to socialise, meet new friends, develop your skills.

Concert Performances

Final year students in French, German and Spanish who study the module 'Fiction as Film in Europe' had the opportunity to watch a concert performance of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony.  The visit enhanced the students’ study of ‘Death in Venice’ and gave them the opportunity to experience a live performance of the entire symphony.  The understanding of the power of music and its role as a Dionysian art form helped the students to understand through experience what is being taught in class.

Chinese Language and Culture Evenings

The University of Chester China Centre held its first Chinese Language and Culture night on Thursday the 10th of November 2016.  Dr Min Ge programme leader of  Chinese Studies gave a brief introduction about the series of Chinese Language and Culture nights planned for every second Thursday of the month until May 2017.


In March 2015 the Department of Modern Languages hosted the travelling exhibition 'Germany’s Confrontation with the Holocaust in a Global Context'. The exhibition was first launched in Leeds in January 2015, to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day.  It was part of an outreach programme led by the German Department of the University of Leeds, with the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation and the UK National Holocaust Centre and Museum.
