Choosing a University is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make, especially when studying abroad.

We understand there’s lots of information out there and you can sometimes get lost trying to find the answers to your burning questions. Whilst us as staff in the International Centre always do our best to enlighten you about student life in Chester, we appreciate you might prefer to hear from our international students who were once in your shoes.

Therefore, the University has launched the ‘Ask a Student’ feature on our website. This tool allows you to view the profiles of our student ambassadors and start a conversation with them. We currently have ambassadors from seven different countries around the world who study a wide range of courses. Our ambassadors are fully trained meaning they can answer any question you may have in a detailed and accurate fashion. You can ask our students about anything related to student life in Chester including:

•What is Chester like as a place to live?

•Is it easy for international students to make friends at Chester?

•What's the accommodation like in Chester?

•What are the lectures like on your course?

As of January 2020, our ambassadors have answered more than 700 questions from prospective students.

Hilbeen, one of our international ambassadors from Iraq has answered several questions and has encouraged students to use the feature:

"I love sharing my experience about student life in Chester and this is why I got involved with the Ask a Student scheme. Choosing a University can be a hard decision and I am glad to play a part in helping students make informed decisions- answering the simplest of questions can sometimes make a huge difference! I would definitely have used the feature as a prospective student. I believe speaking to students who already have experiences is the best way to get information about a University."

We are also holding a live question and answer chatroom session on Tuesday 7th December from 15.30 to 17.30 (GMT). Those who take part can ask our international admissions team about how to apply, the admissions process, offers and the CAS/Visa process.

You can sign up to the online event here.

You can chat to a University of Chester student here.
