Our Summer Residential events will return in Summer 2022 when we can hopefully welcome students onto campus in person for a residential stay. In the meantime, please visit our Open Days webpage for details of how to book your place to visit our beautiful campus and find out more about the programmes we offer.
Our Summer Residentials are aimed at Year 12 (Year 13 if in Northern Ireland) and 1st Year College students wanting an opportunity to experience University study before making their Higher Education choices. Students will receive university-level tuition from our academic tutors, engage with other prospective students and some of our current students.
All students will receive a project to complete during the event and/or take part in realistic taster lectures and workshops, which will be excellent preparation for University study and be a good example to use in your personal statement. You will also have the opportunity to learn from our current students about life on campus and receive advice on applications and student finance.

You will gain a detailed insight into the way the courses are taught here at the university and will have access to the expert staff who deliver the courses. The workshops, sessions and activities that each department have put together have been arranged so that you can get a full and enriched experience of that particular department.
Departments that set their own project-based learning task around a particular topic will enable you to try independent study as well as giving you the opportunity to practise your presentation skills. The informal presentation at the end of the final academic session will allow you to share your project with your group and department staff to get feedback on your ideas.
Preparation for University
As well as access to the academic departments, you will also receive an induction into the services and facilities that students use whist studying at university. Our current students can give you a great insight into what university life is really like, such as how they budget, the societies they are involved with and how they settled in to their new way of life. You will leave with an excellent understanding of what the Edge Hill University Student Experience includes.
Over the course of the residential you will receive advice on how to apply to university and write your Personal Statement. By attending the Summer Residential you will gain excellent experience you can reference and use to demonstrate your commitment to attending university and pursuing your subject
As this event takes place during the summer holidays, students must enquire and book their places individually. Details of the Summer Residentials will be sent to key contacts within schools / colleges and displayed on this website.
