Preparing you for university

University can be one of the most exciting and amazing experiences. You’ll meet new people, learn new things and find out more about who you are.

We want to make sure you get the most out of your university experience. The following information will give you an idea of what to expect when coming to university. There’s plenty to think about, so we’re here to help break it down.

What should I expect when I get to university?

You might have an idea of what university life is going to be like. You’ll make new friends, get involved in social activities, attend lectures, and maybe move out.

These are typical things to expect as part of student life, but there’s plenty of other things to consider during the transition to university. It’s ok if you don’t feel settled right away, that’s why we have plenty of support on offer.

Looking after yourself at university

You’ll have the Student Services and Mental Health & Wellbeing teams on hand throughout your Edge Hill journey. You’ll also be able to chat directly with your own personal tutor – they’ll be there for academic and pastoral guidance.

You might also be wondering about healthcare and what you’ll need to update. That’s why we’ve broken it down for you.
