What Edge Hill can do for you

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 ☺️

Scholarships

Hey guys,

When coming to Edge Hill, the University offers so much from societies to degrees, but, within all of this, the University also provides scholarships for prospective students (you).

When I first started to look at the possibility of coming to Edge Hill, I looked through what scholarships they had through their website. From there, after gaining my place at Edge Hill, I went onto apply for the Excellence Scholarship award which was application based.

Once I got a place at Edge Hill, around the summer time, I was lucky enough to get selected for the Excellence Scholarship award, to which, I was very proud of and it boosted my confidence a lot. I was very fortunate, but, it just shows that hard work and determination does pay off. Also, due to my grades coming out of college, I also got given the High Achievers Award as well.

Other Scholarships include:

  • Excellence Scholarships – If you’re proud of something you have done outside of your studies, this award could reward your determination and achievements.
  • Sports Scholarships – This award celebrates talent and dedication within sports.
  • High Achievers Scholarship – If you achieve above AAA or equivalent to in BTEC, this will recognise your grades and offer you a reward.
  • Liverpool Scholarship – Celebrates the prospective student who achieves the highest UCAS points in the City of Liverpool.

If you would like a bit more information on these scholarships, just click on the link here:

There are a few case studies you can look through from other students who have won these scholarships in previous years as well.

If you are an international student who has been looking at Edge Hill, there are other scholarships the university provides which you can find here:

If you’re having trouble as well with what scholarships you can go for, there is also a scholarship calculator which helps figure out what and how you can apply for some.
