Adult Learners’ Week begins on May 14, and on Friday, May 20, the University is welcoming graduates of all ages to an event that will give an insight into the postgraduate opportunities available at its Chester and Warrington campuses.

Between 2pm and 7pm, faculties and departments will provide general information about their courses with some delivering taster lectures or Q&A sessions, as well as offering tours of their facilities.

Members of our staff will be available to answer questions covering topics such as fee rates, payment methods and accommodation.

The University’s Careers and Employability Service will be on hand to offer visitors the chance to have a one-to-one interview to discuss career opportunities and the benefits that postgraduate study can bring.

Professor Neville Ford, Dean of Research, said: “The University of Chester provides an interesting and varied range of postgraduate study opportunities and this Open Day is an excellent opportunity to get a taste of what is on offer at our Chester and Warrington campuses.

  • Applied Sciences
    Arts and Media
