North West Location

Study in a region with real personality. Based in the heart of the North West near the historic market town of Ormskirk, there’s everything you need on your doorstep. Shops, cafes, parks, nightlife. The town centre is just a 10-minute walk away or a 2-minute free shuttle bus journey. Nestled between great northern cities like Liverpool, Preston and Manchester with fast transport links to each, you’ll also be in the right place for securing job opportunities and exploring the region’s cultural hotspots and beauty spots.

Funding and Entry Requirements

Entry requirements vary depending on the postgraduate course. Most Masters and PGCEs typically ask for a 2:2 or above in a relevant subject, however we are committed to broadening access to knowledge so if we feel you have the right professional experience for the course get in touch or check requirements on the university website.

We don’t want finance to be a barrier to success either. There are many options available to help fund your studies including DfE bursaries for PGCE students, studentships for research students and scholarships that reward excellence outside your studies and sporting talent. If you have an innovative career-enhancing idea our Student Opportunity Fund offers up to £2,000 to help make it happen.
