We are updating this page regularly and as quickly as we can when new guidance is announced. Please keep yourself up-to-date with the latest information available on the NHS website and ensure you know what is expected of you in terms of staying alert and safe.

I have been invited to a virtual/online interview; how can I make sure I am prepared?

Due to the pandemic all interviews will now take place virtually. If you have been invited to an interview you will receive an email to the email address on your UCAS application which will give you all the information you need. This will include a link to a set of guidance, which includes tasks that you will need to complete in preparation for your interview. If you have received an invitation to interview and you do not think you have received your interview guidance, please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing

I have a question about my virtual/online interview, who should I contact?

How will the University support applicants whose current studies have been disrupted by the pandemic?

Due to Covid-19, we recognise that your studies will have been significantly disrupted over the last couple of academic years. Therefore, from May 2021, to support your transition to university study, we will provide you with access to a range of materials which have been suggested by your academic department as a good way of getting your subject knowledge up to speed before your arrival. You will also be able to access our excellent online UniSkills materials so you can begin to develop the skills you will need to thrive at university.
In the meantime, we have a range of current students who are ready and waiting to answer any questions you might have about what life at Edge Hill University is really like. You can ask your questions now.

Will the changes in the assessment of Level 3 qualifications affect my offer?

Your offer of a place to study at Edge Hill University will not be impacted by announcement of how Level 3 qualifications will be assessed. We have made your offer based on the strength of your application and predicted grades and that offer remains unchanged.
We know how hard you have worked towards your Level 3 qualifications and we also recognise that you have experienced considerable disruption to your studies over the course of the Coronavirus Pandemic. We understand the challenging circumstances that you have faced, and we will take this into account when we receive your results later this year.

Can I visit the campus before deciding on my offer?

We are currently unable to host any on-campus events. However, if you are an offer holder you will be invited to your Applicant Visit Day which will be held virtually. We would really encourage you to take part in these events. They will give you a chance to experience what learning is like in your Department, meet tutors, chat to students, and get to know other applicants. If you have received an offer from us and not yet booked your place, check your email inbox, or look out for your invitation arriving in the post. If you have any questions about these events, get in touch by emailing

We know how important it is for you to visit the campus in-person, and we are very keen on ensuring you have the opportunity as soon as it is safe to do so. We will keep you informed of our plans over the coming months.

Should I still apply for my student finance?

Yes, you should apply for your student finance as soon as applications open, which is usually mid-February. We would encourage you to apply as soon as possible to ensure that you have all your finances in place for the start of your course. Visit the Student Finance website for more information.

Will I still be able to apply for on-campus accommodation as normal?

The accommodation application process is continuing as normal. If you decide to make Edge Hill your firm choice you will receive an email from our Accommodation Team which will give you all the information you need to make your application. Please note, the deadline for applications is 31 July 2021. You can find out more about our accommodation options here.

What will the teaching and learning look like in September 2021?

We are following Government guidance and at Edge Hill University, we are passionate about the transformative power of higher education and we are determined not to let Covid-19 get in the way of your learning.
The nature of the pandemic means that guidance is changing all the time. We are hoping that by September 2021 the impact of Covid-19 will have lessened meaning that we are able to provide our usual levels of face-to-face teaching. However, we will closely monitor Government guidance and will keep you informed over the coming months.

Where can I find the latest guidelines for Covid-19

You can find all the latest guidelines on the Government website.
