Edge Hill is in the UK Top 35 (Guardian University Guide 2024). It tells you that we’re committed to delivering a student experience that gets better and better.

We were Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022, reinforcing the exceptional experience our students enjoy.

And our students agree.

We’re 1st in the UK for accommodation (Uni Compare 2023) and have been named as one of the Top 4 Universities in the North West (Complete University Guide 2024).

Student satisfaction

We’re ranked in the top three in the North West for student satisfaction (Complete University Guide 2021).

That’s because there are plenty of ways to complement your academic studies. You could take a sandwich year or a shorter term placement. You could spend some time studying abroad. Or you could learn a language, perhaps German or Arabic.

A beautiful campus experience

Whatever your diet, there’s a variety of places dotted around to eat and drink. £60m has been invested in sport and leisure facilities. With easy access to gyms, 3G outdoor pitches, a swimming pool, and an athletics track you have no excuses.

There are over 70 clubs and societies to join, where Doctor Who and Marvel heroes rub shoulders with werewolves, witches and K-Pop fans. Chaos often ensues.

And our Arts Centre has a full schedule of live shows and film screenings, ‘to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow’, as Kurt Vonnegut put it. He also suggested dressing as Count Dracula. Themed bar and club nights, quizzes and karaoke will give you that chance to express yourself.

Throughout your student experience you’ll find the Student Support team are there to catch you if you fall. While an active Students’ Union provide both advice and representation, as well as driving a variety of activities and events.

It’s not difficult to see why so many students choose Edge Hill University as their home from home.
