The Student Opportunity Fund

Hi everyone!

One of the many amazing things about Edge Hill includes the student opportunity fund, this fund can allow students to go on placements or internships who wouldnt be able to afford it otherwise. The fund also covers the cost of travel and accomodation expenses as well as money for productions for films and presentations.

The fund will help you do things like this if it will enhance your employability after you graduate and provide you with transferable skills, every year each student is provided with up to £2000 from the opportunity fund so they really can help you with some amazing experiences!

To be eligible to apply for the Student Opportunity Fund, you will need to be:

  • Registered on a programme leading to the award of an undergraduate degree, integrated Masters degree, DipHE, foundation degree or PGCE. This excludes inbound Erasmus students;
  • Studying full-time or part-time. Part-time students are required to be studying a minimum of 60 credits in the year of application;
  • Domiciled in the UK, EU, Isle of Man or Channel Islands.

It really is an amazing thing to be able to lean on for support, especially as without this service we would not be able to do some of the amazing things we could do!
