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.


English courses are available at our Parkgate Road Campus, Chester. In Chester, the Department of English is based in two beautiful Victorian buildings – The Old Vicarage and Rockmount. Students benefit from modern teaching facilities alongside social hubs and accommodation just a short walk from the centre of Chester.


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.
