Meet our students

Mental Health student Emily

“The course has really opened my mind to different ways of looking at things. I really enjoyed studying the impact of social media on mental health in first year. Even as someone who has grown up with it, I was shocked to read the statistics about children’s use of social media, how young they start and the impact it can have.”

“I have had problems with my mental health while at university, but the staff at Edge Hill have always been very understanding. I have a learning mentor and special equipment to help me in lectures. Thanks to this support, I have gone on to receive a high achievers scholarship, an Excellence Scholarship for my role in setting up the Vegan Society and have created a plant-based food company which was runner up in Edge Hill’s Entrepreneurship Awards.”

“I’m studying an MSc in Psychotherapy and Counselling – Contemporary Creative Approaches. I am loving my time here at Edge Hill in Ormskirk as it is a fantastic uni and such a stunning campus. I am excited to be a part of the roller-skating society which I have literally not done since being 8, as well as the dance society. ”

Lauren, current student

“Coming to university was a huge change and I did not know how I would feel, but it has changed me in so many ways. University has allowed me to develop myself academically as well as teaching me valuable life skills. I have met a variety of people, and have really come out my comfort zones.”

Bethany, current student
