We are located in a state-of-the-art facility within the beautiful modern campus of Edge Hill University, which enables us to offer exceptional teaching and social space in a supportive learning environment. Our academic staff are drawn from a variety of backgrounds and bring with them a wealth of business and professional expertise, as well as academic qualifications. We work closely with a wide range of professional bodies and our courses carry appropriate professional accreditation, as a well as additional qualifications in some cases; all of which enhance student learning and add value to our degrees.
We are justly proud of our outstanding results in the National Student Survey (NSS); of our graduates and their success in gaining entry to their chosen careers; of our students and their achievements in regional and national competitions, and of our staff who are continually singled out for praise by the students they have taught and whose efforts are also recognised through student-nominated, University awards, and nominations for national teaching awards.
