A very English student city

Both Chester City and Chester University are populated almost exclusively by white British people. Walking around the streets of Chester, you would be hard pressed to find a recent immigrant or an international student.

It appears that few new arrivals to Britain have found their way to the former Roman fort. The city is 15 miles south of Liverpool and has a population of over 90,000 people, 95% of whom identify themselves as white and British. The University is trying to encourage more international students to study in historical Chester. But at last count, only 250 non-European students were enrolled out of a total 15,215.

University of Chester

The University of Chester is based at Chester but has one of its four campuses located at Warrington, which is east rather than south of Liverpool. The university has an above-average course satisfaction rating of 3.5 / 5.0.

The University of Chester is encouraging international students to try the university by offering generous arrival services, scholarships and by pricing annual tuition at a reasonably modest £10,600. The university also provides a diverse range of accommodation options, with rooms starting from around £3,440 for the academic year. All accommodation is close to the university – there are a number of halls of residence available on campus and other university properties are within a short distance of the main campus area.

  Chester City in England just south of Liverpool offers a quieter study experience for university students.
