"I chose to study Law full-time after taking an introductory class under another course at the University of Chichester - I was hooked! The topics are so interesting and the tutors are incredibly supportive. It’s been a wonderful experience so far."

"I chose Law because it’s a diverse field of study I know will always give me opportunities to continue learning throughout and after my degree. I always want to be learning, to me a day I haven’t learnt something new even if it is small, is a day wasted. That coupled with The University of Chichester has been a great fit for me, there are two beautiful campuses and plenty of facilities to make the most of your Degree! The teaching methods are personal and give opportunities to ask questions, discuss and understand subject material in every face to face session as well as outside of the classroom."
