Hey guys, for this blog I’m going to talk about visiting Edge Hill as a prospective student what you can expect and what is available to you.
Chances are if you are looking at university as an option you have probably selected five universities to put down on your application, or maybe you are looking to change university, if you have selected Edge Hill, you might now be thinking about visiting the place soon to get a proper feel for it. So I’m just going to give you a few different pointers on when you can visit and what will be going on.
Applicant Visit Days: These vary in times and nature between courses but they are generally available to people who receive an offer that doesn’t require an interview or audition. Visit day’s are a good way to get a feel for your course specifically as they are tailored for it, with relevant tutors and subject taster sessions.
Open Days: These are days where the whole campus is opened up to people to come see the inner workings of the university. People are given the chance to see the campus, the accommodation, as well as experience more course-related things like subject presentations.
Campus Tours: If like me you live further away, open days and applicant visit days may not be on at suitable times for you. So Edge Hill also offers the opportunity to visit for a campus tour. These are held every month with additional dates over February as well. Tours are another great way to look around the university, they offer the opportunity to be taken around the various facilities and areas by a guide, with a presentation on aspects like student finance and a Q&A to follow. Edge Hill also offers Ad Hoc campus tours which can be arranged for a time and date suitable to you if coming from abroad and can’t make any of the other dates. These also offer the chance to be shown the campus by a guide, with viewings of some accommodations although these won’t be as in-depth as the usual campus tours, they are still a viable option.
Whatever you choose, just know that seeing any university including Edge Hill first hand will help make any decisions in the future a lot easier! I will include useful information links below and thanks for reading!
