This week I’m going to be talking a little bit about open days and applicant visit days. They are a really great way of learning more about the university and your course.
Prospectuses are great, but first-hand experiences will be pretty important in making your decision. Even if you feel like you have all the information you need, if you haven’t visited the university you want to come to in September I would really recommend it!
Visiting the campus will give you a new insight, maybe clarify anything you weren’t quite sure of and give you a peace of mind.
For those people who haven’t applied to University yet Open Days are great to give you a sense of the options available to you.
If you visit and Edge Hill Open Day then you will be able to chat to staff in the department you are interested in studying in, get more information about student finance and funding and get a good look around the accommodation and the campus in general.
It might feel like a bombardment of information, but it will help you make an important decision, and all the staff and students who work Open Days are so friendly you will always be pointed in the right direction.
But even if you’ve already applied, or are even holding an offer from Edge Hill you are more than welcome to come visit us!
When you find yourself asking questions about university life, whether that’s how you’re going to pay for rent, where you can buy food or how often you’re going to be in class the Open Days are a great place to find the answers. And everyone really supports you up until you arrive as a first year.
Applicant Visit days are another great way to learn more about the university. Some courses that have interview/audition processes will give you the chance to see the campus and ask other questions. For subjects that don’t have interviews the Visit Days are priceless.
They are designed specifically for offer holders to Edge Hill, and are course specific. So you’ll get to meet some of your possible future tutors, classmates and get a real sense of what studying at Edge Hill is all about.
I really hope you do all come visit the university- it is an exceptional place to be. And it really opens doors for you in ways you might not have even thought of.

Hope you all have a great week, until next time! 🙂
