Year 12 Residentials

A student, holding a mug in one hand, works on a laptop in his bedroom.Although you are currently unable to visit our campus, we want to make sure that you are still able to discover what Edge Hill University has to offer and get answers to all of your questions.

Our 2020 summer residentials are going virtual. You will focus on one subject area during a series of academic workshops, ensuring you gain an insight into what studying a degree in your preferred subject area would be like.

You will also be able to interact with other students who are interested in joining a degree in your subject area, work with student guides, and receive advice on completing a UCAS application.
