    I want to know if it's a good university because im from Croatia and I don't know about universities in UK, so can anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of Edge Hill. I have received a conditional offer for "Music Production" and I don't know if I should go or not.

    Thank you

    Personally I don't think it's a good university. Are you getting value for money? Is a degree from Edge Hill worth £50,000 debt? I don't think so. But that is just my opinion.

    A few things:

    1. That is extremely elitist

    2. They are doing music production. Edge hill is decent for that degree.

    3. Where do you get £50,000 from? It's a 3 year course

    In what way is my post elitist? The course is irrelevant, the OP asked for opinions on the university as a whole. I included living costs.

    well I really dont know, I saw the programm that they offer and it seems great beccause here in croata we dont have any schools or colleges with that kind of course. and I'm also confused about the working while studying thing, some people told me that you cannot work while u study others say that you can work only 4 hours per day. I need to know that information because I need to work while I study because my parents cannot support me enitrely.

    thank you

    You said you're from Croatia? EU citizens can work in the UK for as many hours as they want, even if they're studying.

    Yes thank you,
    And one more thing, does the student loan include the costs of accommondation ?

    The student loan only covers the tuition cost. EU students can't take out maintenance loans, so you need to pay for your accommodation and food yourself.

    Have you had a chance to visit the campus?

    It's a while since I was there, and it has changed a lot, but I really liked it there. I liked the area - Ormskirk is small and pretty quiet really, but it doesn't take long to get to Liverpool or Southport.

    If you like the course (i.e. all the modules you will cover) and the place itself, then I think that's the most important thing. Sure, there are universities that rank higher up the tables, but it's 3 years of your life - spend them somewhere you'll be happy.
