As the country and the world pulls together during the COVID-19 pandemic, inspirational stories are keeping our spirits high - and we’ve got our own to tell at the University of Chester.

We’re determined not to let the coronavirus outbreak affect our students’ education, and true to the University’s ethos, the wellbeing and academic achievements of our students remains our main focus. But we have also been answering the call that’s been heard across the nation to help our NHS, like many other universities. We’re proud of our students and we’re proud of our staff, so we wanted to share their stories with you.
