Testimonials

Yasser, MSc Computing

As an overseas student, you will need a lot of help and support to adapt with the new education system. At Edge Hill University, all the tutors as well as admin staff are more than happy to offer this kind of help at any time you need it.

I was surprised by the outstanding services offered by the library team especially the academic writing sessions. The Student support centre helped me a lot with writing a polished CV and preparing for a job interview.

High quality on-campus accommodation with reasonable price made my life easier.
