The Legal Cheek View
You may think that Chester feels familiar, if you’ve ever watched Hollyoaks. But in fact, the city’s foundations are Roman. And that’s way before Hollyoaks’ time.
Within one of the best-preserved walled cities in Britain, you can do your GDL at The University of Law, Chester. ULaw’s Chester campus is currently based in Christleton, a small village on the outskirts of Chester’s city centre, on 14 acres of “beautiful parkland”. Students have described it as “lovely”. Though it is worth mentioning that the campus is moving in the summer of 2021 into the city centre, though no definitive site has yet been announced.
Our GDL spies tell us that the teachers at ULaw Chester are “approachable”. Students also say that the campus has “great, friendly and supportive staff”. The class sizes are relatively much smaller, so there’s more focus on the students and doesn’t feel as impersonal as some of the larger GDL providers do. GDLers also recommend the “good careers centre” and “great facilities”, which made a difference to their study experience. Remember to “use the careers and pro bono service!!!!!” another adds.
