Join us at The Kitchen Sessions, our popular live lecture series brought to you by our experts. Watch previous lectures, find out what we’ve got coming up and book your place.

Formal teaching for these courses will be delivered at Parkgate Road in Chester from April 2021. The university will still own the Thornton site which will be used for research purposes. The close links that currently exist between the University and the companies based at Thornton will continue.


You will be based at Parkgate Road Campus, Chester. At Chester, students, academic researchers and commercial enterprises work alongside each other and continue the legacy of innovation in the North West. Our laboratories are equipped to a high level with research-quality instrumentation.

Careers / Employment

Each year we organise a specialised Mathematics careers event, including talks and one-to-one sessions with graduate employers from a range of sectors, Chester mathematics graduates, and expert careers advisers. On all the Department’s courses, work placements are available in your second year to ensure experience of applying your skills in real employment environments, and Physical Sciences students also conduct an extended project in the third year, which may be in collaboration with an industry partner, helping to build your experience and strengthen your CV.
