The University of Chichester has proudly provided education in the city of Chichester since 1839, and in Bognor Regis since the 1940s.

This long history supports our confidence and experience in educating students just like you, and the Silver Teaching Excellence Framework Award we achieved in 2017 demonstrates Government recognition of the quality of education we offer.

 We believe our university is enriched by having students and staff from a wide variety of backgrounds. Higher education should be open to everyone who has the ability and potential to benefit from it, regardless of age, ethnicity, disability or family background. We know from our experience that a diverse student group creates a lively and successful community.
