History

The University of Chester was founded as Chester Diocesan Training College by a group of local leading figures in the Church of England, including future Prime Ministers William Gladstone and Lord Derby[3], in 1839 as the UK's first purpose-built teacher training college[4] — making it one of the oldest higher education institutions in the country[5]. Its first intake consisted of forty male student teachers. Soon after, in 1842, Gladstone opened the College's original buildings just outside Chester's city walls on the Parkgate Road site the University still occupies today[6]. The Church of England is the officially established Christian church[3] in England, the Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion and the oldest among the communions thirty-eight independent national churches. ... The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is, in practice, the political leader of the United Kingdom. ... William Ewart Gladstone (29 December 1809 – 19 May 1898) was a British Liberal Party statesman and Prime Minister (1868–1874, 1880–1885, 1886 and 1892–1894). ... Arms of Edward Smith-Stanley Statue in Parliament Square, London Edward George Geoffrey Smith-Stanley, 14th Earl of Derby, KG, PC (29 March 1799–23 October 1869) was a British statesman, three times Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and is to date the longest serving leader of the Conservative... The University of Cambridge is an institute of higher learning. ...


In 1910, Chester began its association with the University of Liverpool and formally became an affiliated college of the university in 1930[7]. Thus, Liverpool awarded Chester's qualifications and Chester's students were able to use Liverpool's facilities (as they still can today). The University of Liverpool is a university in the city of Liverpool, England. ...


The 1930s saw the institution threatened with closure, but its future was secured by the then Bishop of Chester in 1933[8]. From then on, the College continued to grow steadily. By the 1960s, the situation had turned around completely and, as the UK was massively expanding its higher education capacity in reaction to the Robbins Report, the College was touted as a candidate to be upgraded to university status. In the end, however, these proposals came to nothing. Geoffrey Francis Fisher, Baron Fisher of Lambeth GCVO, PC (May 5, 1887 – September 15, 1972) was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1945 to 1961. ... The Robbins Report was a British government-commissioned report into the future of higher education in the country. ...


Nevertheless, the College continued to expand. Women were first admitted in 1962 and the College's name was changed to Chester College of Education in 1963. In 1974, the number of courses was expanded beyond teaching to include Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. To reflect its wider remit, the College was renamed again to Chester College of Higher Education. A B.A. issued from the University of Tennessee. ... B.S. redirects here. ...


Development continued and, in the early 1990s, the School of Nursing and Midwifery (now the Faculty of Health and Social Care) was established[3]. At the same time, the College began to offer a Bachelor of Theology degree, HNDs and more postgraduate courses, such as master's and PhDs[3], as well as embarking on a £10,000,000 campus improvement programme. By 1995, Chester had earned the right to call itself University College Chester. However, this name was short-lived as the government changed the requirements for university colleges in 1999 to include only those that had their own degree-awarding powers. Thus, Chester had to drop the University College tag and reverted to the title Chester College of Higher Education, though the more descriptive Chester, a College of the University of Liverpool was frequently used in publicity material[9]. The Bachelor of Theology (B.Th. ... A Higher National Diploma (HND) is a higher education qualification in the United Kingdom. ...

The College further expanded in 2002 by buying the higher education faculty (and campus) of the nearby Warrington Collegiate Institute[3]. The further and adult education campuses of Warrington remained independent and are now known as Warrington Collegiate.


In 2003, Chester was granted its own degree-awarding powers, allowing it to be known as University College Chester once again[10].


In 2005, University College Chester was finally awarded full university status and became the University of Chester[11]. This was followed by the right to award its own research degrees in 2007[12].

The University of Chester is a medium-sized institution with two campuses. The 32 acre main campus[11] is located on Parkgate Road, just north of Chester's famous city walls. It houses most of the University's academic and non-academic departments. The campus is a mixture of old, Victorian buildings (such as Old College, right, which includes a chapel) and more modern buildings (like the Binks Building, opened in 2003). The campus also features all the normal facilities, such as a fitness centre, swimming pool, bar and various shops. The Victorian era of the United Kingdom marked the height of the British Industrial Revolution and the apex of the British Empire. ...


The University has now outgrown its campus and some departments have moved off-site (though all to locations within walking distance of the main campus). The Department of English, for example, is located in a Grade II-listed former Victorian vicarage, while the Department of History is split across the eighteenth-century Blue Coat School (which is also Grade II-listed) and the Cheshire Military Museum in Chester Castle, which is also a fully-operational museum open to the public. Chester Business School is housed in more contemporary accommodation, which used to be a hotel. The Forth Bridge, designed by Sir Benjamin Baker and Sir John Fowler, opened in 1890, and now owned by Network Rail, is designated as a Category A listed building by Historic Scotland. ... Chester Castle was built in 1069 by William the Conqueror in Chester, Cheshire. ...


There is a substantial amount of University-owned student accommodation (primarily reserved for first year and foreign students), either in the form of halls of residence and a student village on the campus, or houses just off it.


The smaller Warrington campus, which started life as a camp for Canadian officers in World War II, is located in the Padgate area of Warrington. The campus includes the North West Media Centre, which has close ties to Granada Television. Combatants Allied powers: China France Great Britain Soviet Union United States and others Axis powers: Germany Italy Japan and others Commanders Chiang Kai-shek Charles de Gaulle Winston Churchill Joseph Stalin Franklin Roosevelt Adolf Hitler Benito Mussolini Hideki Tōjō Casualties Military dead: 17,000,000 Civilian dead: 33,000...

Students and faculty

Most of Chester's 15,000 students are from the UK, with a quarter being mature students. There are twice as many female students as male (partially due to the number of nursing, midwifery and teaching students). There is also a small number of foreign students, primarily from an active exchange policy.


There are approximately 1500 members of staff 569 of whom are academic. Many of them take part in research and often publish their work through the institution's own publishing house, Chester Academic Press.


Chester Students' Union

Chester Students' Union (CSU)[14] provides a wide range of services and offers a number of facilities, such as running the union bars (Max 250 and The Overdraft on the main campus and Fu-Bar on the Warrington campus) as well as a shop on the Chester campus and a comprehensive vending area on the Warrington Campus. The Union also runs over 65 sports clubs and societies; each campus has its own teams, many of which compete in BUSA competitions. In addition to this, there are many non-sporting societies. A student radio station, The Cat 1251, is based on the Warrington campus and broadcasts every day of the year, with presenters on air from September until June. The British Universities Sports Association (BUSA) is the governing body for United Kingdom. ... Student Radio is radio produced by students based at a university or college. ...


The Union is made up of a number of full-time staff, part-time student staff (these form the support staff for union operations) and elected volunteers (these form the Executive Committee and the Union Council), as well as three elected sabbatical officers (the president, a vice-president for the main campus and a vice-president for the Warrington campus). The Executive Committee is elected each year and each has a different role, such as entertainments representative, welfare and campaigns representative, publications representative and so on. Once elected into position, the Executive team members serve one year in office before re-elections. The Executive Committee members are the trustees of the union.


The Union is a member of the National Union of Students. The National Union of Students (NUS) is the main federation of students unions that exist inside the United Kingdom. ...


Reputation

The University of Chester generally enjoys a good reputation, with its teacher training, nursing and sports science courses being particularly recognised. Its strong links with nearby businesses and involvement with external events, such as the Chester Literature Festival, means that the University is also well-regarded within its local area.


The University's profile has been boosted by the popularity of the teen soap opera Hollyoaks, which is set at a college of higher education in Chester. This institution is often assumed to be the University of Chester, though the programme is in fact set at the fictional Hollyoaks Community College and filmed mainly in Liverpool.

Coat of arms

The University of Chester's coat of arms was granted by the College of Arms in 1954, when the institution was still known as Chester Diocesan Training College. The entrance of the College of Arms. ...


The arms, pictured above, are made up of an argent shield featuring the St George's cross (as the institution is located in England), on which there is a golden wheatsheaf, representing the institution's home county of Cheshire. In the upper-left portion of the shield is a clasped open book, symbolising learning. The crest features a bishop's mitre, signifying the institution's founding by the Church of England, in front on two crossed swords, which are taken from the County of Cheshire's coat of arms. The golden scroll contains the institution's Latin motto, 'qui docet in doctrina', which is taken from St Paul's epistle to the Romans and translates as 'he that teacheth, on teaching' (though the University's preferred translation is the looser 'let the teacher teach')[15]. For other uses, see Argent (disambiguation). ... St Georges cross The St Georges Cross is a red cross on a white background. ... For other uses, see England (disambiguation). ...

The coat of arms was used as the College's logo until the early 1990s when a new logo, with a depiction of the Old College building, was introduced. The coat of arms returned to the College's logo in 2002 when a simplified version became part of the logo. The University's current logo, introduced in 2005, features the shield and scroll from the coat of arms.
