Check for Vacancies

Check out our course vacancies above and read our course profiles. There are a range of single honours courses available to choose from across a number of subject areas.

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.

Contact the University

Once you’ve decided on the course you’d like to study, contact us to see if we can make you an offer. Make sure you have your results to hand.
