We believe in the life changing opportunities knowledge can create. Since 1885 we’ve been creating access to knowledge for those who may not have had the opportunity to before.

We’re proud of our successes

The effect we have has a far-reaching impact, not just for those who come to study here, but for those who work, invest in, and live in our local communities too.

So if you’ve ever wondered if one person can make a difference, simply speak to our alumni, students and helpful staff.

Because for all of us education isn’t about how much you take in. It’s about what you take out into the world.

Awards

We put student experience at the heart of every decision we make. Our awards reflect the hard work of the whole Edge Hill University community and our dedication to delivering excellence.

But don’t just take our word for it.

The Modern University of the Year accolade is rooted in our culture and campus. Where we are inspirational in our thinking and exceptional in our student experience. We believe in combining quality teaching with future-focused courses that are designed to empower. Equipping each student with the skills they need to thrive.

Investment, innovation and a continued commitment to delivering an exceptional student experience saw us top the charts at the Educate North Awards ’20/21. We have shown exceptional progress over the past 12 months, but the hard work doesn’t stop now. This is only the beginning.

Our campus

Take a look around our 160 acres of campus and you’ll see why it’s award winning. We have invested £350 million in creating top facilities for our students to use, live in, and enjoy.

Investing in green spaces

Our campus is designed around our students – and we’re always thinking of ways to make it better. For the 10th year in a row our grounds and green spaces have won a Green Flag Award for their beauty and benefit to the environment. Which in turn we believe benefits our students.

Employability

We apply real world knowledge to our teaching. Educating students to know exactly what employers are looking for in competitive job markets. This approach saw us crowned best in the North West and in the top 10 in the UK for job prospects (Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2020).

Research

We set out to deliver teaching of the highest standard informed by research of true international standing, set in an intellectually stimulating, ideas-focused and inclusive environment. More than half of Edge Hill’s research is classed as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021.
