An insight into Geography and Geology at Edge Hill

We’re based in the Geosciences building which provides inclusive teaching, learning and research facilities for all our students. Our team of friendly staff are based in the department building and are on hand to offer one-to-one advice.


Our building features a large lecture theatre, small group teaching rooms, and a number of dedicated specialist laboratories including physical geography, geology and spatial and data science. We also have a bespoke physical geography and environmental science teaching laboratory. The building houses well equipped analytical/research laboratories, a geo-technical engineering laboratory and a social area for students.

Edge Hill’s Sustainability Festival

The festival, organised to coincide with the first week of the COP26 climate summit being hosted by the UK in Glasgow, aimed to celebrate Edge Hill’s dedication to advancing sustainability and encouraged everyone to look at the world in new ways.

Coastal scientists make a splash

Coastal scientists at Edge Hill University have launched a YouTube channel in a bid to inspire the next generation to protect the world’s coastlines. Developed in partnership with Sefton Council and Southport Eco Visitor Centre, the videos have attracted global attention .
