Edge Hill offers constant support for students no matter what the problem is, which is something I found very helpful in my first year.

I’ve been fortunate enough to complete my final year placement in a school in Cumbria – learning first-hand how rural schools operate and teach differently to city schools.

The course is not at all what I was expecting when I chose to study Religion. But in a good way. We look at religion through lots of different lenses, including sexuality, gender, feminism, family origins and disability, which I hadn’t even considered before.

I feel like I haven’t just developed academically over the last three years, I’ve also changed as a person.

The world is massive and there’s lots to discover, but since joining Edge Hill, I’ve realised there’s just as much to discover about yourself.
