Year 12 Summer Residential

Year 12 Summer ResidentialsThe Education Liaison and Events Team are able to offer opportunities for Year 12 (Year 13 if in Northern Ireland) and 1st Year college students to experience life on campus during the course of a four-day, three night summer residential visit.

A wide range of departments are taking part and students will select the subject area they are most interested in pursuing at university, in order to get a real insight into what it would be like to study that subject. All residential attendees will have access to the University Library and IT network for the duration of the residential. Evening activities (some compulsory and some optional) will run each night, and students will stay in halls of residence. Current Edge Hill University undergraduate students will be on hand throughout the residential, offering support and guidance where necessary.

Year 12 Summer ResidentialsPlaces are fully funded by the university, and those interested in attending are required to submit an application form, consisting of a short `personal statement` and education history, which will be used in the selection process. Please note that the University does not cover the cost of travel to and from the Summer Residential.

As this residential event takes place during the summer holidays, students must enquire and apply individually. Details of the residential will be sent (via post and electronically) to key contacts within schools / colleges and displayed on this website.

If you are a Teacher or Careers Adviser and would like to be added to our key contacts database, please contact the Education Liaison Officer responsible for your region, or email

Applications for the 2019 Summer Residentials are now CLOSED. More information can be found here.
