Good university to study.
Tips: I am an undergrad student, first I thought that everything would be easy but it is not. If you also want to come and take up a Bachelors course prepare your mind. Not many Indian students will be in an undergrad class for Masters there are many so at first it feels like something alone but then it gets better. Chester is a small town but a good one, for me it is better as I don't want myself in a big city yet I want abroad exposure. I got an international scholarship of 2000 GBP and my course is good. In this university there are many unique courses mostly for students. Before applying be sure about what you want to study and whether will that help you or not then apply because the course curriculum is very specific.
Likes (Quality of faculty): More focus is given on assignments rather than exams. Some of the exams are MCQ based. The teaching method is more like students teaching the professors about a topic while the professor adds pointers and clear the doubt. I like this method more as it helps to learn and remember fast. Professors are very supportive and helpful at the same time and they motivate us.
Dislikes (Indian Food): I prefer cooking. I learned it myself, before coming to UK I could only make tea but then I realised that it is better to learn cooking as it is cheaper and homemade which is better for health. Some Indian restaurants are in Chester like Chain station for veg food and some halaal options are also available for non veg in balti house.

It was absolutely amazing. The city and campus was spot on. I would recommend this to everyone.
Tips: Good grades are not enough to get you a job nowadays. The competition is very high. Make sure to get some work experience alongside your studies. Even if it is just on the weekends, part time jobs and internships will have a great impact on your resume.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): Close to Manchester, Liverpool and Crewe you can find opportunities in various SME’s as well as MNC’s that are willing to offer you a visa sponsorship given you have the right qualifications and work experience for the job. The cost of living in these areas is also very affordable.
Dislikes (Internships): The university was very cautious about everyone’s health and wellbeing and thus not many opportunities were posted on the student job board but as soon as the situation was more stable, there were some really exciting opportunities. They did have many part time options in the university.
