Chester is such a beautiful city and the university has been really helpful. International department have helped a lot with the application process as well.
Over the past two years, I have fallen in love with Chester, the university, the city, the life, everything! Places to eat, relax, communities, friends, it's all great!
My overall study experience has been very challenging and has helped me develop several skills required in the future. The lecturers are realistic and have been very supportive. I love that Chester is a small town where international students are able to fit in very easily as the community is so welcoming along with the University too.
