Research degrees at Edge Hill are organised and run centrally. The Graduate School is the mechanism by which the University does that.
Who are we?
The Graduate School is a centrally coordinated network of staff working in the service of the University as a whole on research degree matters. That means that most staff are not solely engaged in Graduate School work but have other responsibilities in faculties and departments.
There is, however, also a smaller number of staff with specific dedicated research degree roles that is responsible for the central coordination of the wider Graduate School work.
Edge Hill University offers three routes to a research degree: MRes, PhD, and professional doctorate. All applicants registered on these courses are referred to as postgraduate researchers (PGRs) or research degree students.Routes of study available

Academic writing for research
Tuition is available for students to develop and enhance their academic writing for the purposes of research. This includes tutorials on developing skills in planning, structuring, the signposting of arguments and matters of clarity. Small group academic writing workshops are run to develop criticality and structure in academic writing for research students.
For those students who are close to completion and are interested in publishing their work, advice is available on writing for publication. If a student is returning to study, after a long break, refreshers in academic writing for the purposes of research are on offer.
These sessions and one-to-ones are run by Dr Craig Collinson. For more information please email: [email protected].
