Going to university is all about gaining independence. Learning to cook, learning to manage your finances, learning to be self-motivated, learning to use a washing machine! But we can all do with a helping hand every now and again, and that’s where the Edge Hill Student Services Team comes in (sadly not to help with the washing or cooking mind you!)
The Student Services team (based in the Student Information Centre (SIC)) are on call to help you with the hard stuff, the team is made up of experts and specialists that can help you out with everything from career advice, CV writing, looking for work experience, finance and inclusion services!
The award-winning Careers Centre at Edge Hill University can offer you many opportunities for learning, developing your skills and gaining experience which will help towards your future career and job prospects. They have a huge list of places that can offer work experience and volunteering opportunities in a whole load of different areas!
