Book a School or College Campus Visit

Our typical visit days starts at 10:00am with groups departing by 2:30pm

We have a maximum capacity of 120 students for each visit and smaller groups may share the visit with groups from other schools.

If your year group exceeds 120 students, it may be possible for us to host your school over two dates (subject to availability). Alternatively we would advise you to select a cohort of learners from groups underrepresented in higher education:

  • Those living in areas of low higher education participation (POLAR4) or from lower household income or socioeconomic status backgrounds (English Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD))
  • Black, Asian and minority ethnic students (BAME)
  • Mature students (over 21)
  • Disabled students (those in receipt of DSA and those who have declared a disability but are not in receipt of DSA)
  • Care leavers

For more information please see the Access and Participation Plan webpage.

Please complete the campus visit booking request form, selecting your preferred date and all of the information about your school group. Our team will contact you by email to confirm your visit and provide further information that you and your students will need in advance of your visit to the University of Chester.
