Student Reviews for Edge Hill University

Student satisfaction:
4.6 (based on 765 student reviews)

“I came as an international student from America. The campus is beautiful and the international office is very helpful. Ormskirk is not the best place for a night out, but Liverpool isn’t too far away and is always a good option. I stayed in Main Halls and the accommodation was average, it didn’t impress me.”

“Edge Hill has managed to create a supportive environment with good facilities and affordable, quality accommodation. The lecturers are the stars for me though, as they’ve helped me whenever I needed it.”

About Edge Hill University

PROS

  • Edge Hill fosters a mutually supportive environment, according to students. Many claim that there is very little competition between learners here.
  • Students say that the accommodation is affordable compared to many other universities around England.
  • A strong reputation for student services, such as their career guidance office who train students how to manage an interview professionally, as well as in how to refine their resumes.

CONS

  • Students complain about the poor communication between lecturers and how this affects the assignments and workload organisation.
  • There are numerous complaints that the accommodation is smaller than expected, especially considering the fees required.
  • Learners warn that there is not much of a nightlife scene, so they recommend going to Liverpool if that’s important for you.
