At TRS Chester, we offer an exciting calendar of monthly events for A Level Students interested in religion, philosophy and ethics and you can access all of it for FREE! Why not join us for our live online A Level Webinars where we’ll engage with you on topics and questions from the A Level RS specification, or drop into one of our Kitchen Sessions where one of our experts will speak about a topical subject? If you’re interested in applying to Chester for one of our TRS courses, then sign up for an Open Day or, if you have an offer from us, come and meet us and our students at one of our ‘Meet Your Department’ events. We’d love to see you and chat to you about your interests.
