When I started this masters degree I really didn’t expect it to change my life in the way that it has. How I look at the world has really altered. I’m more critical and questioning but also more confident in my own abilities.

“I’ve been to a lot of universities all over the country but none reach Edge Hill’s standard. It’s fabulous. The teaching support, the environment, the atmosphere, they are all great. It’s more like a village than a university, but at the same time it has all the facilities you need to reach your academic goals. I really wouldn’t consider going anywhere else.

My dissertation is on the parental perceptions of childhood nutrition and health promotion messages, which fits perfectly with my intention to go into public health promotion in the future. As well as the academic content the course also gives you a lot of professional networking opportunities, which have enabled me to attend many really useful events, conferences and seminars as recommended by my tutors.

The tutors here are fantastic and they always go the extra mile for you. Even tutors who I know from my undergraduate days always ask how I’m getting on. The library and career services here are superb too – I always recommend them and hear good things back.
