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 email@example.com

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 realise how important it is for you to visit us in person, and we now have a number of opportunities for you to visit the campus:
Campus Experience Visit – a unique opportunity to meet your department, take a look at the facilities, and chat to current students. You can find out more and book your place here. Please note capacities are extremely limited and booking is essential
Campus Tours – we have a number of student-led, covid-secure campus tours, available to book now.
If you have any questions about visiting the campus, get in touch by emailing email@example.com
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?
In line with current Government guidance, we are aiming to deliver a fully in-person teaching timetable from September which means all of your lectures, seminars and tutorials will be face-to-face, supported by high-quality online materials which will be available on demand.
In all of our planning, we are guided by the advice from Public Health England and will follow any restrictions the Government places on the wider population. Our primary objective is to ensure we provide you with a safe, secure and fully open campus when term starts on Monday 27 September.
If Government restrictions affect our plans for September, we will move back to our high-quality blended learning model. Whilst we don’t currently anticipate any change to our plans, should it be necessary, you’ll be the first to know and we’ll send you everything you need to know right up until enrolment. You can read more about how we’ve supported our students this year by visiting our news stories or by taking a look at our social media channels to see how we’ve created a vibrant campus this summer with a free outdoor cinema, sports activities and student barbeques.
Where can I find the latest guidelines for Covid-19
You can find all the latest guidelines on the Government website.
