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 study at the University’s historic Parkgate Road Campus, just a short walk from Chester city centre. Here students benefit from excellent support from teaching staff and modern teaching facilities, including specialist PC and Mac computer suites. Parkgate Road has a wide range of social spaces (e.g. Students' Union building, cafés, bar, green spaces), recreational facilities (e.g. swimming pool, gym, sports hall) and accommodation options.

Careers / Employment

Our courses have a strong focus on employability, merging academic disciplines with practical, technical skills to prepare graduates for a career. You will have the opportunity to build a portfolio of projects to pave your way into industry. We also have our own software development centre – the Informatics Centre – which provides the opportunity for you to gain essential experience.
