What our students say

PhD Computing (2017)

Peter Ankomah“My experience has been amazing and intellectually stimulating and this has been my best education provider and campus so far. There is no better time to start studying at Edge Hill.”

Whilst researching UK universities I saw that Edge Hill had been awarded TEF (Teaching Excellence Framework) gold status as an indication of the level of quality at the University. Whilst studying here I have found that the standard and methods of teaching are excellent and my department has been immensely supportive.

In regards to campus facilities, my department has the only 4K CAVE in the UK, so that means I am at the best university to do my research related to virtual reality. The library is fully stocked providing physical and electronic access to books and articles, which are soon to be housed in a newly built ultra-modern library space called the Catalyst.

The accommodation facilities are best in class, located right on campus and few minutes’ walk to the various departments. Security is guaranteed with electronic access to only assigned floors. There are various options with different costs and international students can make a choice on which best suits them. I have made some good friends in the halls as well.

My experience has been amazing and intellectually stimulating and this has been my best education provider and campus so far. There is no better time to start studying at Edge Hill.
