Meet our students

Hi, my name is Eleanor and I am a BA (Hons) Sociology student here at Edge Hill University, this means I am part of the wider Social Sciences Department too. I would like to tell you about my experiences with my course at Edge Hill, and the services I have received as a student at this University.

“Something that had a real impact on me was the trip to Amsterdam in the second year. We visited a nursery to see what teaching was like compared to the UK. The teachers were highly qualified and their teaching standards were quite different. This included babies being encouraged to sleep outside in the playground for fresh air because it is good for their immune system. We also went to a university and attended a lecture about child policy and prostitution. It was so interesting as well as a bit shocking.”

“I am a first-year student who is currently studying Childhood and Youth Studies. Before University, I had many questions that I didn’t know who to ask, the Ambassador Role from Edge Hill meant that I could talk directly to someone who had been in my shoes. It was incredibly helpful! The campus is also the perfect place to make new friends, especially through my hobbies and societies, like the British Sign Language! Feel free to pop me a message and I’ll do my best to help you!”
