Meet our students
Not many students get the opportunity to go and work in another country straight out of university but, thanks to the opportunities at Edge Hill, I’m ready for it.
Computing and IT studentView student profile
My favourite thing about my course is that it’s mostly hands-on and code-based practical tasks, which allows me to dive into programming to solve the task at hand.
BSc (Hons) Web Design & DevelopmentView alumni profile
The community at Edge Hill is very accepting. I was nervous about starting university, however after I met my teachers and found my friends, there’s no place I’d rather be.
BEng (Hons) Intelligent Automation & RoboticsView student profile
Artificial Intelligence can only grow in the future as it becomes more and more a part of our lives. There will be an increasing demand for people with skills and understanding of robotics and AI.
BSc (Hons) Robotics & Artificial IntelligenceView student profile
Before I applied, I thought clearing was for the purpose of just potentially getting a place at university. That there was a slight chance that you would get a place only if there were still places available. It came to be that it took less than a few days from applying for the course to being enrolled on the course, and a day or so after I got a place to live on campus too.
