Hear from our students

We seek to make a difference. Delivering research-informed teaching in English literature, English language, and creative writing, we actively engage with public audiences and organisations. But don’t take our word for it. Hear from some of our students about the activities they have been involved in, what the best things are about their courses and what it is like to be an Edge Hill student.

I was inspired to study Education and English because the course gave me the opportunity to become an educator of some kind, not necessarily a traditional school teacher which isn’t really the route which I want to go down.

My favourite part of the course was the opportunity to tailor it to my interests and strengths.

My advice would be: don’t let fear stop you from taking all the opportunities you can. You’re probably more capable than you think you are.
