Chichester College | Beautiful City

Chichester College | Beautiful City

City of Chichester

The beautiful historic city of Chichester is in an area of

outstanding natural beauty near the south coast of England.

The city has Chichester Harbour to the south and the rolling

hills of the South Downs National Park to the north. It is a

brilliant and safe location for the College in the UK making it

a wonderful place to learn and live. It is within easy reach of

some of England’s most famous and historic cities.

The streets are very

beautiful. I like walking around

the city with friends, to eat British

food and go shopping.

is extremely important. The College has a safeguarding

ensure the best possible support is provided. We have an

International Student Support Officer who works with our

international students across the board if there are any
