Course Vacancies

Foundation Year options
In addition to our single honours course options, you may find that some courses offer a Foundation Year entry route.

University of Chester Foundation Years have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly onto the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so.

Successful completion of the Foundation Year qualifies students to progress onto a full honours degree.
