Since 1885 we’ve been creating access to knowledge for those who may not have had the opportunity to before. Now you’re ready to start your own journey with us. Find out about the different ways to apply. Here we’ll explain the four routes to get you started.
There are three main ways to apply to us, and how you’ll apply to depends on the level of study, and whether you plan to study full time or part time.
You may need to apply through:
- UCAS (The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service)
- or directly to Edge Hill University.
The entry criteria for our undergraduate degree programmes are usually shown as UCAS Tariff points. Some courses might have extra criteria you’ll need to meet.Entry requirements
