Open to: All majors

Nestled between the historic market town of Ormskirk and rolling green fields in North West England, Edge Hill University’s beautiful campus is just 25 minutes outside the city centre of culturally diverse Liverpool, and 40 minutes to the bright lights of Manchester.

During your stay Edge Hill University you’ll be able to mix with students from all over the world, take in the lakes and scenery on campus, and relax in our cutting-edge sports complex, Sporting Edge. We know that studying in a foreign country can be both a daunting and life-changing experience, so our International Team and academic staff will provide you with dedicated support, from Welcome and Orientation right through to program completion. You’ll be living in on campus accommodation, with your own room as well as shared bathrooms and kitchens to chat with new friends.

When you’re not busy broadening your mind, you’ll broaden your horizons with excursions us to beautiful places like Manchester, historical York and Chester, Conwy Castle in Wales and the breath-taking Lake District.
