About University of Chester

Postgraduate Study at the University of Chester

The University of Chester provides a wide and flexible range of postgraduate and post-experience courses designed to meet the needs of prospective students. In today’s rapidly changing world our postgraduate qualifications can provide valuable career and personal development opportunities and help you build on your experience and current skills.

We offer a broad choice of professional, internationally recognised postgraduate qualifications incorporating taught degrees, research degrees and professional doctorates. Our courses are available in flexible full-time and part-time study options.

We recognise that some students already have proven academic or work-based experience, and we have processes in place that may be able to help you to claim credit for prior learning.
