A short, intensive and free course, our Fastrack programme has been specifically designed to support progression on to a range of undergraduate degrees at Edge Hill University.

Aimed at mature learners who have been out of study for at least two years, and do not hold the required entry qualifications, you will be equipped with the confidence, familiarisation and essential academic skills required to study at degree level.

On this page you’ll find videos and features to give you an insight into what it’s like to study Fastrack at Edge Hill.


Based in 160 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, the Edge Hill University campus is a unique and inspirational place to study. Industry standard resources and cutting edge technology combine to make an interactive and highly advanced teaching and learning environment.

Everything you could want is on one site, from fantastic modern spaces in which you can study and socialise, to more than 2,200 rooms in halls of residence, and 60 acres of sport and leisure facilities.

You should refer to the relevant subject page for specific information about the facilities in your intended subject area.

What our students think

The Fastrack programme gave me the confidence and direction I needed, introduced me to the campus and people and taught me how to write academically. Even if just a small part of you is thinking about doing this course then I would definitely recommend it

I can do things now that I would never have imagined before. As a busy mum, I thought I’d struggle, but I’ve found I can sit down and put my mind to things. It’s really changed my life.
