Future Open Days

Our open day dates for 2021 are still to be announced. Please keep checking this page for updates.

Open days are suitable whether you are looking to study an undergraduate programme or postgraduate course. Attending an open day provides an opportunity for you, and your family, to see our beautiful campus.

Student guides will take you on a tour of the halls of residence and faculty buildings, highlighting the wide range of impressive facilities and resources we offer.

You will discover why the campus has been ranked best in the North West and in the top five in the UK for university facilities (WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2020) and been recognised as one of the world’s best green spaces for nine successive years (Green Flag Award 2020).

During the day, you can speak personally with course tutors, attend subject presentations, take tours of subject-based facilities and engage in practical activities. You will discover everything you need to know about the student experience at Edge Hill.

Staff will also be on hand to advise about the application process, accommodation, understanding fees and finance, and planning for your future career.
