Visit us on a Campus Tour


English courses are available at both our Parkgate Road Campus, Chester, and University Centre Shrewsbury. In Chester, the Department of English is based in two beautiful Victorian buildings – The Old Vicarage and Rockmount. In Shrewsbury, English is based in the modern Guildhall building on the banks of the river. In both locations, students benefit from modern teaching facilities alongside social hubs and accommodation just a short walk from the centre of either Chester or Shrewsbury.


Beyond the classroom, our students run an English Society with a range of guests, outings and talks. There are ‘open mic’ evenings where anyone can perform or read – poetry, prose, the choice is yours. You can get involved with one of our publications such as our creative writing pamphlet Pandora’s Box, or our acclaimed Flash Fiction publication, or join us for our public lectures and events.
