The University of Chester is located in Chester, United Kingdom and was founded in 1839 by Lord Derby and William Gladstone. This institution is one of the oldest and most respected Higher Education universities in UK.
Subjects and Admissions:
The university offers Doctorate degree programs for both UK residents and students overseas. From 1970 to 2003, there were new courses added such as BSC, BA degrees and School of Nursing and Midwifery. One of the University’s main goals is to provide support to its students in order to reach their full potentials.
The Mathematics department in this University has Post-graduate research programs in Numerical Analysis of Deterministic and Stochastic Functional Differential Equations. A Doctorate or Masteral degree on Philosophy is also available. These courses are research based and can be taken in full or part time. Their research programs are composed of a wide range of topics that will suit anyone’s interests.
Admissions for Doctorate Degree programs usually require the applicant to be scheduled for an interview. The record of that interview will be sent to the Graduate School. Once he or she has passed the interview, the applicant will be asked to submit an application form together with some academic qualification documents such as the CV.
If approved, the Graduate School will send an offer to the applicant. If the application was rejected, they will inform the applicants through a letter. For research programs, the applicant must contact the university and speak with the academic staff. The application form will then be given. You can also download the application form but the submission can’t be made via online. International applicants can apply in the department specifically designated for foreign applicants.
