My BA (Hons) in Drama and English Literature is a combined honours degree which has allowed me to make lots of friends from different courses and get to know a lot about the University.

“When I first visited Edge Hill University I really liked the campus and how everything you need is on hand while places like Manchester and Liverpool are only a short journey away.

Now I am studying here I can honestly say that I am loving both my degree and, just as importantly, the social element of student life! Having lots of things to do and places to visit that are easy to get to are allowing me to really enjoy my university experience.

As for the course itself, I enjoy being given the independence and responsibility to manage my own time. My BA (Hons) in Drama and English Literature is a combined honours degree which has allowed me to make lots of friends from different courses and get to know a lot about the University.

Alongside my studies I decided to become a student blogger, mainly to help people who are making decisions about which university to go to. From a personal perspective blogging will also be a great way to record my first year at Edge Hill and enable me to look back on my time at university in the future.  A final reason I chose to blog is to enhance my writing skills, which can only be helpful for my degree.

Within the blog I tend to write about life on campus, both social and academic, and try to give an accurate picture of what university life entails. My aim is to help people who are looking to study here to know what to expect.

To anyone who is thinking of studying at Edge Hill: I would say to go for it! It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and the number of different societies and groups means that there is something for everybody, making it possible to form great friendships.

When I graduate I hope to become either an English or Drama teacher or possibly set up a business to teach performing arts to young people with special educational needs. I am sure my degree will provide me with a wide range of skills to help make me successful in whichever career path I choose.”
