Why study History at Edge Hill?
We are very proud to be rated top in the North West for student satisfaction by the National Student Survey, and 5th in the whole of the UK (NSS 2021). We teach and research medieval and modern History from around the globe, from medieval Iraq to the contemporary United States. Students are at the centre of our community, which is dedicated to developing each individual’s skills and knowledge for their life after university, including our ‘work-related learning’ programme. Our thriving research culture is centred around a series of clusters that include scholars from across Edge Hill: Medieval History, Middle Eastern History, EHU Nineteen (Victorian Studies), Political History; and Race, Religion, Gender, and Class (RRCG). We are proud to be the home of the International Centre on Racism.
