Students

Here at Edge Hill, we want you to get the most out of your university experience and that’s why we have so many dedicated people to help you do just that! 

We realise what a difficult year this has been for so many of you, and we think you should be proud of all your accomplishments.  

As we enter into the New Year, we want to remind you about the opportunities and initiatives available so you can reach your full potential.

Clear your mind, set your goals and let us help you do those things you kept putting off in 2021!

Here’s ten ways we can help you with your New Year (and all year!) resolutions… to make 2022 your best year yet…

Improve your grades

Our UniSkills team provide a range of support designed to develop your academic skills and confidence. We offer workshops, online resources and 1-2-1 sessions throughout the year.

Plan a bright career

The Careers team are here to help you discover your options, develop your skills and compete for a job. You can book 1-2-1 appointments to talk about anything career-related, whether you know exactly what you are wanting to do or are still exploring ideas. The team will help equip you to stand out from the crowd!

Learn a new language 

We offer a range of free evening language courses that you can fit around your studies. Choose from Arabic, French, German, Italian or Spanish. It’s really easy to sign up with the Language Centre.

Improve your fitness and health

Going to the gym and exercising more doesn’t have to be about losing weight – it’s good for your mind too! We’re offering a discount on annual student membership (until 31 August 2022) for the Sports Centre for just £75*. Head to the Edge Hill Sport page for more information.

Budget to save more money

We understand that money can be a concern when you’re a student, that’s why at Edge Hill there is specialist support available. Our Money Advice team provide info on budgeting tips, support funds, scholarships and part-time work to ease your money worries.

Broaden your horizons

The Student Opportunity Fund can help you kick-start your future career and broaden your horizons! You can apply for up to £2,000 to enable you to take part in exciting initiatives and activities that enhance your employability, build your confidence and develop your transferable skills.

Get more involved in Student Life

Whether it’s getting involved in bespoke sports and arts sessions, watching performances from famous names at the Arts Centre, being entertained by a range of performers on the boulevard or taking part in our Campus Connector events – there’s always something going on. We have plenty planned in for 2022 – keep up to date by following @StudentsEHU on Facebook and Twitter.

Want to open new doors?

If you excel in any area outside your studies you can apply for one of our Scholarships, worth up to £2,000. In the past we have awarded Excellence Scholarships to entrepreneurs, film makers, volunteers, knitters, performers and fundraisers to name just a few, or if your talent lies in sport we offer a Sports Scholarship too. Why not apply in 2022?

Read more books

Take part in The Big Read – delve into the fantastic novel The Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney by Okechukwu Nzelu. Copies of the book will be available on campus in January with books clubs, events and an Author visit to look forward to in the New Year!
