      Facilities

      The facilities required for academic study, such as PC's books are exceptional. If any support is required there are plenty of resources available and learning services are invaluable in providing additional support if required. The open days and student commitment are well demonstrated and encouraging. The hub facilities for food, the uni bar and gym are additional facilities which make the whole experience of uni life a pleasure and rewarding. Close to Ormskirk which enables travel to different places exceptionally easy but also provides a very pleasant environment. Edgehill site is also kept remarkably clean and tidy. The grounds are a perfect environment for study and relaxation when required. My experience has been a really positive experience in my first year and look forward to my next two years.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
