If you have the ability to study for a degree but lack the necessary qualifications, study skills or subject knowledge, our Fastrack: Preparation for Higher Education programme can help you progress onto higher level study.
Our 7-week Fastrack programme is free of charge and provides intensive training in essential academic skills to prepare you for higher education. It may be particularly suitable if you are not currently in education or training but have relevant work/life experience.
Successful completion of Fastrack will demonstrate that you are ready to study a particular subject with us, in lieu of achieving the UCAS Tariff points in the entry criteria.

Open Days and Virtual Events

Our August 2020 open day is going virtual. We will ensure that you can still discover everything that Edge Hill University has to offer and get answers to all of your questions. You will be able to find out more about Fastrack and the University through a series of online activities.
We are continuing to take bookings for subsequent open days while monitoring government advice regarding events. We will communicate all key information to anyone who books to attend.Book your place at an open day or virtual open day
