Post 16 activities – on campus activities

Find out more about how we are able to welcome groups of students onto our campus through a variety of opportunities and activities. Make sure you also check out our off-campus events provision.

We are excited to be able to invite you onto campus to take part in our subject taster days. These events give students the opportunity to:

  • attend introduction and taster sessions in their chosen subject
  • explore how school and university subjects relate to different career paths
  • find out about the facilities, accommodation and campus Edge Hill University has to offer
  • receive general Higher Education information
  • speak to current students and staff
  • ask any questions they may have.

The clear link with careers means our subject taster days can make a useful contribution to a school or college’s gatsby benchmarks. These events provide opportunities for deeper engagement with the subject, enhancing A Level or BTEC study and enabling students to make an informed choice about Higher Education.

Feedback on these events from both a student and a member of staff can be found below:

“There are many degrees related to Geography that I can study, that I didn’t even know about”

“The students enjoyed the day, they got an insight into the university and they really liked the student ambassador who was really helpful and informative about the campus and everything course related.”

The team have extensive experience organising and facilitating bespoke school and college campus visits, ranging from small cohorts of students to entire year groups. A head of a sixth form recently commented:

“A massive thank you to all involved. It was a very worthwhile trip and we very much appreciate the effort that was put into the planning of it. It is definitely something that I would look to repeat with future year groups”

Programmes can be tailored around individual school or college requirements in terms of sessions and timings but a typical example of a day can be seen below:
