At Edge Hill, we look to provide a range of opportunities to our students and deliver a high quality level of teaching, offering a fantastic university experience.
We’re located in the Lancashire town of Ormskirk, meaning you’ll get to experience both life at a campus university and life in a small market town, with convenient links to Liverpool, Southport, and Preston. Paramedic Practice and Operating Department Practice students are also able to study at St James’, our site based in the heart of Manchester.
There are many reasons to feel proud as an Edge Hill student. We’ve achieved Gold, the highest rating in the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), for delivering ‘consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students’. Our accommodation has not only won a Whatuni Student Choice Award, it’s also been named the Best Value for Money Student Accommodation in the UK. For six years in a row, we’ve been recognised as having one of the very best green spaces in the world and the safest campus in the North West.
A combination of beautifully landscaped grounds, state-of-the-art facilities, historic architecture, lakes and even a beach provides a unique and innovative place to study.
Excellent - and well worth moving away from home for. Although it is a smaller university, it has given me the true 'uni' experience with Southport and Liverpool not too far away. Beautiful views and walks nearby. Good student support.
