Staying On-Campus

Students will spend three nights on campus, experiencing what it is like to move in, meet your flatmates and live in halls of residence for those nights. This is an excellent way to immerse yourself into residential life and to find out what moving onto campus would be like.

The Halls of residence are extremely safe with 24-hour security on campus. Students will have an individual en-suite room and stay in a cluster of 6-8 rooms with access to a shared kitchen area. You will be placed in a cluster with other students on the Residential as well as a couple of current Student Guides, so there will always be someone available. The blocks are split male/female.

More information about our on-campus accommodation can be found here.

We understand that some students for religious or cultural reasons are not able to stay on campus. If you would like to discuss the options for this please feel free to contact the Residential Team at residentials@edgehill.ac.uk  or  01695 65 7385 .

Academic Workshops

Students will spend two full days with their chosen Academic Departments. 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.

Project Based Work

Each department will set their own project-based learning task around a particular topic. This will enable students 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.

Application Preparation

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 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.

Places 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.
