I never expected that I would make such good friends in such a short space of time. I already know they will be lifelong friendships.
I chose Business and Management as it focuses a lot on leadership skills. I want to have my own business eventually, and as so many companies collapse as a result of poor leadership, this was something I knew I needed to be successful.
I’ve been amazed by the amount of opportunities there are. I like the option of doing a placement year in industry and I’m hoping to work with a big company for a year to boost my CV. There’s also the chance to study Mandarin at a partner university in China.
I got involved in a university project looking at diversity on campus. As a mixed race student, I’m pleased that my voice is being heard and that, as an institution, Edge Hill isn’t afraid to tackle difficult issues that other universities might shy away from.
The best thing about living on campus is being surrounded by nature. It’s such a relaxing environment to live and study in.
There’s a lovely community feel as well. Everyone looks out for each other. I joined the athletics club too which trains with multiple teams, and I often competed too. I also play 5-a-side football once a week
I’ve found a great group of friends that I love spending time with. My best memory of university is going out with my flatmates, having a brilliant night, then coming back to Halls and chatting until the morning.
