Meet our students

“The staff have been so supportive throughout my course, they always reflect and provide students with first-hand knowledge and experience to fulfil our learning experience. One thing I never thought I would do on a sports degree is travel. I spent 10 weeks volunteering at Camp California. It gave me so much experience that I could bring back and use in my placements. I learnt so much about teaching, as well as about myself as a person, and I wouldn’t have had that opportunity without Edge Hill.”

“My tutors have been a huge help and support over the years. They are all experts in their fields, and are there to help you at any time. They don’t spoon-feed you, but you feel like they really care and want you to succeed. It was one of my tutors that suggested the research trip to Brazil. He recognised how much I loved working in the physiology lab and had a contact at the University of Sao Paulo who was looking for people to help with a research project. He persuaded me to apply and told me about the Student Opportunity Fund, which helped me with the costs of the trip.”

Chat to our students

Physical Education and School Sport student Lucy, and our other students, are here to answer any questions you may have about the department, the local area and student life at Edge Hill.

“I first visited Edge Hill on a summer school and instantly felt comfortable on the campus. With me being very interested in sport and teaching hence my degree it was important they there was high quality facilities such as sports halls, gyms, swimming pool and running track. Also the University has given me opportunity to build upon my coaching qualifications which will be useful in the future.”
