Course overview

Official policy and practice about inclusion might be commendable. It might be based on exceptional administrative experience and expert knowledge. But how is it understood by those on the receiving end? How is it experienced as lived reality? What does it mean for individuals and communities? Especially for the marginalised?

Why Study Inclusion and Marginalisation with us?

Education is supposed to be about more than knowledge. It is supposed to be about experience and the power to change. But what if your experiences don’t count? What if this means knowledge that might change your life for the better is simply not available to you?

At the University of Chester, our Inclusion and Marginalisation course explores these issues from a variety of exciting and rigorous perspectives, and will help you to research forms of marginalisation and inclusion with an emphasis on local experience.

Perhaps you are a teacher or other educationalist, or work in local government, or for a charity, or in some form of public service. Perhaps you are simply interested in individuals and groups of people who are marginalised. Most importantly, if you want to be part of a developing body of critical understanding about inclusion and marginalisation, on an innovative and exciting course, and have supportive tutors in a friendly environment, our Inclusion and Marginalisation course is precisely where you need to be.

Riverside Campus, Chester

The Riverside Campus provides specialist teaching facilities for most students in the Chester-based Faculties of Education and Children’s Services, and Health and Social Care

The University took ownership of the former County Hall in Chester in 2010 and transformed it into the Riverside Campus building, which provides exceptionally high quality and state-of-the-art facilities for its two resident faculties. This iconic building in the centre of Chester is just a 20-minute walk from the main Chester Campus.

Riverside Campus houses the Library collections for Education and Children’s Services and Health and Social Care students along with several IT laboratories for 'open access' and teaching use. All of the teaching spaces are equipped with high-grade audiovisual technology and provide an excellent learning experience.

In addition, Riverside Campus provides a 192-seat lecture theatre, containing raked seating and a widescreen capable of showing Blu-ray and HD films.

Dining@Dee, Riverside’s own café and coffee shop, serves hot and cold drinks, snacks and delicious meals. Meanwhile, the Student Space provides social, group work and discussion space for students, with hot and cold drinks vending machines and snack machines available, and students are able to eat their own food here.


From its beginnings as a Roman fortress 2,000 years ago, Chester has managed to retain its unique character whilst offering everything that you would expect from a modern city today, as it becomes "a must-see European destination".

The City of Chester is a vibrant mix of cafes, shops and ancient walls, rows and architectural and archaeological features. The City is home to all-year-round arts festivals, events, exhibitions and street entertainment, including the famous Chester Races, the Rowing Regatta and the internationally acclaimed Chester Zoo.
