Lovely working environment, it gave me experience in leading my own projects, doing research, further allowed me to explore my time management skills and lead into my being accepted into another job where I was given the opportunity to interview for and get the role in the next year.

Awful management
The management and overall culture here is appalling. Confidentiality is broken, managers are unable to effectively manage staff, and seemingly have no idea what to do. There is an excessive abundance of managers who are, frankly, redundant. Bullying is also rife, and handled poorly from managers and HR. Staff have low morale and there is no support from managers towards career development. The quality of service suffers as a result and students are not receiving the support they need.

Student Nurse
Hard to work/life balance when so much time is required in placement and it is unpaid, so it is hard to bring in any extra money when working on placement

Engaging Educational Setting
I have studied and play sport here since 2013, I have found the University of Chester to be an empowering place to learn and develop pre existing skills.

The standard of the Sports Sociology Department is outstanding with fantastic and up to date knowledge of Academic research. With the ability to challenge ideas with the support to attain the highest possible education level.
