By special resolution of the University Council (governing body) and its Senate, it was decided to recognise and celebrate the achievements of former students, who left either Chester or Padgate Colleges before 1979 with a Certificate in Education or a Bachelor of Education (awarded by the Universities of Liverpool or Manchester), with an honorary Bachelor of Education.
Welcome back to the blog! This week we are delighted to introduce you to our Work Based Learning students, Charles and Amin. Charles and Amin will be helping us over our busy booking period for the Honorary Alumni Degree ceremonies, as well as looking through our archives and posting on our social media.
As part of this year’s Annual Alumni Reunion, a special mini Reunion is taking place for 1969 starters on Friday evening, September 13. On the blog this week, Pat Ransome (1972) shares some of her College memories as the 50 year reunion celebrations for her and her friends approaches.
We have been asking staff, students and alumni to share with us objects and places that make the University of Chester special to them.
