Welcome to the Faculty of Arts & Sciences at Edge Hill University, based just outside the attractive market town of Ormskirk, in the North West of England, close to Liverpool and not too far from Manchester.
We offer high-quality programmes for well-qualified applicants in a very broad range of disciplines, through undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Our research impacts on policy and practice, whether in Knowledge Transfer Partnerships or in other forms of collaboration, on local, regional, national and international levels. Our performance in the UK’s Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) established Edge Hill as the most improved institution since the previous census of research activity in 2008. In that time we more than doubled both quality of outputs and the quantity of work published.

The Faculty has some excellent facilities, including The Arts Centre (Rose Theatre, Studio Theatre, dance studios, practice rooms), a recently refurbished and extended BioSciences building, the Edge Hill Business School, a refurbished GeoSciences building, Creative Edge (TV studios, recording studios, a radio studio, animation labs, and a colour-grading suite, as well as general and specialist computer labs and editing facilities), and very extensive Sports provision. Our learning resources are second to none with industry-standard equipment to give students as realistic a learning experience as possible.
Our portfolio of programmes is developing in exciting directions, with new departures in programmes such as BSc Genetics, BA Music Production, Musical Theatre, BA Policing and MComp Computing. We have a fast-growing community of full-time PhD students across the Faculty with ambitious targets for further expansion. The continued investment in our staff, campus and facilities, the regular launching of innovative programmes and a genuine commitment to provide the very best possible student experience means that Edge Hill is increasing the University of choice for UK, European and international students, with the Faculty attracting over 10,000 undergraduate applications in 2016, up nearly 20% on the previous year.
There are plenty of opportunities to come and visit the Faculty – at an open day, evening public lecture, performances in the theatres, films in the Rose Theatre or in Creative Edge, sports events or one of the many national and international conferences we host. Visit the Faculty’s events webpage for further details.
