Located on an award-winning 160-acre campus in the thriving Lancashire town of Ormskirk, near Liverpool and Manchester, we have grown and diversified into a leading UK Top 50 institution (Guardian University Guide 2020) with almost 3,500 postgraduate students.
We’re renowned for high-quality teaching, outstanding facilities and exceptional job prospects for our students, who proudly place Edge Hill in the UK top third for overall satisfaction and best in the region for Learning Resources (National Student Survey 2019).

Continued investment in cutting-edge resources ensure we offer some of the best facilities in UK higher education to provide an innovative place to study, equipping our students with the most sought-after skills for success in their chosen careers.
