Here at Edge Hill University, we operate a centralised admissions system. The Admissions Unit is based in the Student Administration Centre at the main campus in Ormskirk.

The Unit deals with full-time and part-time applications for all programmes, with the exception of Research Degrees and Professional Development (CPD), liaising with both academic and support departments throughout the decision-making process.

Our team of professional administrative staff will ensure that you are guided through all the application processes at each stage of the recruitment cycle, from receipt of your application right up to the point of enrolment. Depending on the course/programme for which you have applied, this may also include:

  • interview/audition arrangements
  • DBS and/or Occupational Health checks

The team is also on hand to advise and answer any queries or concerns that you may have about your application throughout the process.
