Chichester, or ‘Chi’ (pronounced to rhyme with ‘eye’) as the locals call it, upgraded from University College to fully-fledged University in 2005. Despite the name, only one of its main sites is based in the pretty historic city, the other is six miles away in seaside town Bognor Regis ... more detail There’s a cosy, laid-back feel to the place but it’s not party central, nor even party outskirts ... more on entertainment Teaching is based on workshops and small group learning.
