A few days ago, in the media department, we had a speaker come in and speak to us: David Yates. This was an amazing opportunity and if you’re lucky enough to come and study at Edge Hill, you will be able to have these opportunities as well. Not only does the media department have these sorts of speakers, but most courses do too, with specialists coming in talking to you about career prospects. This also gives you the opportunity to ask questions to them as well.
This is one of the best things that Edge Hill offers, although, it isn’t said. Within my first term at Edge Hill, I’ve been to approximately 5 speakers (not including ones on my modules). In the media department, we’ve had Heidi Thomas, in addition to a Festival in a Day event. As a University, this just shows that Edge Hill is not only a University about lectures and seminars, they also concentrate on what may interest the students and bring in speakers or do workshops, so it doesn’t necessarily feel like ‘learning’.
Edge Hill doesn’t just offer speaker events, but so much more. There are social nights on Wednesdays over in the SU and also Free Film Fridays over in the Arts Centre, which Edge Hill students actually get free entry into 😉
You can also sign up to different societies and clubs. We have so many ranging from sports, gaming, films etc. You can find some more societies on this link here:
During freshers week, if you’re lucky enough to become a student here, they hold an event over in the HUB where you are able to apply and sign up to different societies and clubs. If you’re interested in a blog post more concentrated on societies and clubs, I would be more than happy to – just drop a comment down below ☺️
