The campus is small and quaint, easy to navigate. We have a lot of good facilities and a great student union. There are plenty of sports and societies to join and get involved with, plus the option to start your own. I do animal behaviour and it's interesting, lecturers are super kind and friendly, easy to approach and down to earth. The nightlife in Chester can be a little repetitive but that's the main negative.

Excellent on site facilities including lab space, bars, shops and sports facilities. The learning facilities such as the library are very good but could use a little more space. Staff are always helpful and encouraging. The student union bar is always good for a cheap way to start any night out.
