One of the main benefits of attending an open day is to enable prospective students to get a feel for the amazing campus and decide whether Edge Hill is right for them.

“I decided to become an open day guide because I feel prospective students should hear about Edge Hill University from the viewpoint of current students. I’m really proud to be part of the Edge Hill community and love talking about all the great things here. There is so much on offer so it’s important that people thinking about studying here have as much information as possible to help them make an informed decision.

One of the main benefits of attending an open day is to enable prospective students to get a feel for the amazing campus. They can see the great facilities and talk to staff from different departments, allowing them and their parents to have any questions answered in person.

During the open days my role involves taking visitors around the campus and showing them the hidden gems on offer, such as the beautiful rose garden and our campus beach. It’s something that I really enjoy and I hope that I can help people with their important decisions about going to university.

I think that whether it’s moving down the road, or 130 miles over the Irish Sea like I did, going to university can be an overwhelming experience. However, the community feel and support available at Edge Hill makes this transition a whole lot easier, not just for the students but for their parents too. I have absolutely loved my time at here and wouldn’t change anything about the experience.

My advice to those about to start on their own university adventure is to get involved in as much as you can in your first year. It is important to remember too that everyone is going through the same experience and emotions, but if you make an effort then so will they. A really good thing to do is to join one of the many clubs and societies as it is a great way of meeting new friends who enjoy the same things as you.”
