Read Edge Hill University Reviews
Edge Hill so far has been a great experience. Meeting new people and engaging in a course I thoroughly enjoy. Only downfall is the SU is fairly s**t for a night out and the wifi is as effective as a condom with a pin hole in it but whatever
I'm a first year and I am having the best time at Edge Hill. The campus is beautiful and I haven't met a member of staff who isn't lovely. The accommodation is amazing and I couldn't fault a thing about it. We have the best nights at the student union bar every Monday.
