While the way in which we will deliver some of the services and facilities we provide for our students may have changed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the University of Chester remains fully committed to delivering an excellent range of student support, student services and facilities to enhance your academic study. Details for the 2020/21 academic year will be sent directly to applicants and returning students. Further information can also be found here.

Work Based and Experiential Learning

Our innovative Work Based Learning (WBL) module prepares you for employment by giving you the chance to spend five weeks working for a host organisation. Experiential Overseas Learning offers you a five week project at a destination around the globe to experience a practical element to your learning. Most students have the opportunity to undertake either one of these options as an integral part of their undergraduate course.

Sandwich Courses

If you are studying a sandwich degree, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a year’s paid professional placement at the end of your second year. This placement will help develop your skills and knowledge by applying what you have learnt to a work environment.

Vocational Courses

Some of our vocational courses, such as our Midwifery, Nursing, Social Work and teacher education courses, will require you to partake in various placements throughout the duration of your course.  This is an essential part of your course that ensures you are fully prepared for your chosen profession.
