Why Study Work Based and Integrative Studies (WBIS) with us?

Our course will enable you to ‘learn while you earn’.

The first module will help you to undertake a self-audit and complete a claim for prior learning (if appropriate) where learning in the workplace can be rewarded academically. It also provides the opportunity for needs analysis and action planning, in order to enable you to successfully create an individual pathway of study and gain an award title that meets your learning needs. This award title will relate to your area of professional practice.

The course offers flexible and adaptable study for those seeking professional development opportunities, and for whom customised courses relating directly to the work setting are the most effective way of achieving their objectives.

Queen's Park Campus, Chester

Only minutes from Chester’s historic city centre, and nestled alongside the banks of the River Dee, Queen’s Park Campus offers a unique and unforgettable learning experience at the University of Chester Business School.

Most recently a bank, it was once the historical Western Command headquarters for the Army during World War Two, making this a fitting location for leaders of the future to flourish.

On-site facilities include: a dedicated business library with group study spaces and learning pods for quiet study, a 250-seat lecture theatre, mixed teaching rooms equipped with the latest AV equipment and high-quality computer suites.

The campus also has fantastic catering, including a cafeteria with a Starbucks ‘grab-and-go’ counter and bring your own food area, as well as a top-floor brasserie with panoramic views of Chester. There are areas for students to socialise outside the building, with access to riverside walks and the Meadows.

The student accommodation and the facilities of Parkgate Road Campus, Chester, are also within walking distance or a short bus ride.

Not only an academic site, this campus also operates as a much sought after corporate hub for a wide range of partners from the public and private sector. This gives you plenty of opportunity to network with likeminded people and potential future employers on a regular basis.

Take a virtual tour of the facilities at Queen's Park Campus.
