Our fully-funded Summer Residentials provide the opportunity for Year 12 and 1st year college students to experience life on campus during a four-day, three-night residential visit in August.
Staying in halls of residence at Edge Hill University, you will have the opportunity to choose the subject you are most interested in pursuing in Higher Education.
You will focus on this subject during a series of academic workshops, ensuring you gain a real insight into what studying a degree in your preferred subject area would be like.
You will meet other students who are interested in joining a degree in your subject area, work with student guides, receive advice on completing a UCAS application, and participate in a variety of social activities. You will also receive an induction in using the University library and IT facilities on campus.
Please note, the University does not cover the cost of travel to and from the summer residential.

It has definitely made Edge Hill stand out from other universities.
The academic sessions were a step up from A Level but I was able to cope with them and they weren’t as hard as I thought they might be.
I wanted to see what it would be like to live away from home, as well as to experience studying Law.
I came here very nervous and not knowing anyone but I put myself out there and just thought what is there to lose!
I now feel that I know so much more about university, in particular the different assignments and assessment there will be.
The academic sessions taught me how to work in a team and I enjoyed meeting new people.
