You can apply at

For students from Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland please visit for information about the postgraduate funding available to you.

Postgraduates are encouraged to explore all forms of additional funding to maximise the amount available to support the payment of tuition fees and living costs.

Self Funding Students

Tuition fees must be either paid in full at the start of each academic year or in three equal instalments.

You will be asked during stage one enrolment how you intend to pay your tuition fee. If you will be receiving a postgraduate loan from Student Finance England or Student Finance Wales, you will be classed as self-funding as your postgraduate loan will be paid directly to you and not the University. You will be instructed during enrolment how to make payment. This can either be done in full at the start of the academic year or in three equal instalments via a recurring card payment. For further information related to payments contact the Fees, Scholarships and Bursaries Team at

It is your responsibility to make payment on time and ensure that sufficient funds are available in your account to cover the first and any subsequent card payments.

Tuition fees must be paid in full by 1 May 2021. If you fail to meet this deadline the University will refer any outstanding debt for external collection and may review your registration.

Sponsored Students

If you are sponsored by an employer for part of, or the full tuition fee, you must forward the following information to during enrolment:

  • A letter from your sponsor to confirm that they agree to sponsor you
  • The letter must be on official headed paper and state the name and address where the invoice needs to be sent. It should also confirm your name, student number, academic year and the amount of fees they are paying
  • A company purchase order number if applicable.

Please note that in accordance with our published Tuition Fee Regulations you will remain personally responsible for payment of tuition fees, even if there is an arrangement for payment to be made on your behalf. If your sponsor fails to pay within 30 days of invoicing we will commence credit control procedures against you, not your employer.

Alumni Fee Remission

  • 20% Fee Reduction: Edge Hill graduates joining a full-time or part-time Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, taught Masters degree (excluding MRes awards) or PhD may be entitled to a 20% reduction in tuition fees;
  • 50% Fee Reduction: Edge Hill graduates joining a full-time or part-time MRes award may be entitled to a 50% reduction in tuition fees.

Enrolment is a mandatory online process that you need to complete to become a member of the University, release any loan or bursary monies, activate your IT/Library account and benefit from all its services.

Stage One

The first stage of enrolment will open on Wednesday 9 December. As part of this process you will need to provide the University with some personal information, including proof of your identity and a suitable profile photo for your Unicard.

If your status on UCAS Track is Unconditional Firm (UF) by this date, you will receive an email to the email address you used to make your application. This email will contain everything you need to complete stage one including your login details.  Please allow 24 hours for this to arrive. If you do not receive the email, please check your junk folder and then contact

Once you have submitted your stage one, all further emails regarding enrolment will be sent to your Edge Hill email account. You will need to make sure this is set up before you can complete stage two.  To access your Edge Hill email account, please visit the Student Homepage and click the ‘Email’ icon.

Please note, you will only be able to set up your email once you have received your stage one email.

Stage Two

Once you have submitted your stage one enrolment, and the Enrolment Team have verified your photo and ID, you will be ready to complete stage two. We will send you a confirmation email with instructions to your Edge Hill email account (you can set this up using the same login details as you used for stage one).

It is essential that you complete stage two to confirm your attendance and release your student loan. You will need to do this at the start of your course (or the day you move into halls if living on campus).

Stage two is really simple. All you need to do is:

  • Open your confirmation email and click the stage two link
  • Click the button ‘Login to Enrol Online’. You will be prompted to log in using your student number and password
  • Once you have logged in, you should see a message confirming that you have completed the enrolment process.

To make the process as quick as possible for you on the day of your arrival, please read the instructions for stage two on the website here.

Important: If you are isolating and unable to attend campus for your induction, you can complete stage two remotely via this link.


Please note, the University will be closed from 19 December until 3 January, so you may experience a delay in the processing of your stage one enrolment if you submit it during this period. We recommend you complete Stage One of enrolment as soon as possible (after receiving your enrolment email), as if you do not complete this before starting your programme it may result in you being unable to access University facilities and cause delays to your first student loan payment (if applicable).

If you need help with any stage of the enrolment process get in touch:

Travelling here

Car Parking at Edge Hill University is limited and cannot always accommodate all vehicles during peak periods. We therefore recommend, wherever possible, that students use public transport.

Students coming to study at Edge Hill for the first time will need their student number before a parking permit application can be made.

The issuing of parking permits is based on clear eligibility criteria, however the provision of a permit does not guarantee a parking space due to the limited capacity on campus. Even if you do have a permit, we suggest you build in sufficient time to park off campus when necessary. Details of alternative parking provision close to the University can be found on the link below.

Please visit this page on our travel webpage to find out more about parking on-campus.
