“I had a great experience studying History at Edge Hill. Looking back, I am proud of the significant improvements I made in the way I wrote, undertook research, and studied. My tutors were always there to answer my questions and provide me with tips and advice, which helped me improve in all areas.”

I have found the teaching methods to be superb.

“I chose Edge Hill Univeristy as it offered an amazing opportunity to expand my knowledge of creative writing. It's also renowned for its faculty and visiting writers/guest speakers that the students are able to interact with on a personal level.”

Staff from the International Office are welcoming, friendly, and always there if you're in need.
