One of the staunchest supporters of the benefits of higher education for the city of Chester will be installed as Chancellor of the University during the institution’s graduation ceremony on Friday, March 17.
Former Chester MP Gyles Brandreth was a campaigner for the institution to be granted university status in the 1990s, 150 years after its foundation by the Church of England as the country’s first purpose-built teacher training college. This ambition was eventually realised in 2005 and he has followed the University’s progress since with keen interest.
His installation ceremony, which begins at 10am in Chester Cathedral, will be followed by two graduation ceremonies, at which 465 graduands will receive their well-deserved awards
