- About Plattsburgh
SUNY Plattsburgh has had a relationship with Chester for more than twenty years, and it remains a popular destination amongst our students. Chester offers a variety of academic programs, including history, English, geography, sociology, and TV/radio production.
In England, courses are referred to as modules and majors are called courses. Chester offers mostly full year modules and limited single semester modules. In order to find appropriate modules, Chester will review the proposed study form (above) and select available modules that most closely match those listed. If you must take any modules in order to study abroad, please indicate that on the proposed study form. Please note that the campus timetable may not be available until a few days before the semester begins, so students may not know which modules they are taking until they arrive on campus. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Study Abroad and Exchanges.
Chester offers work placements for students who want to gain hands-on experience. Work placements are only available for students studying in the spring semester or for an academic year. In some cases, you may not be guarenteed a placement until you arrive on campus. Please note that in order to participate in a work placement, students must have a Tier 4 visa.
You will pay for your accommodations directly to Chester. Chester has three types of accommodations, though availability is based on a first-come basis. They are catered, semi-carted, and uncatered. "Catered" means that there is a meal plan, "self-catered" means that there are cooking facilities on site, and "semi-catered" means that you would only purchase part of a meal plan and do some cooking for yourself onsite. For more information, please visit Chester's Accommodation website.
The City of Chester has a rich and fascinating history, from its beginnings as a Roman fortress 2000 years ago to the vibrant modern city of today. Popular attractions include the city walls and gates, the Cross (where four Roman streets converge and the Town Crier delivers proclamations), the largest Roman amphitheater in Britain, Roman Gardens, the magnificent Cathedral, the unique Tudor Rows (covered galleries of shops), the Eastgate Clock and the River Dee.
Please note that all fees are subject to change without notice.
