Established with a clear mission to create opportunity from knowledge, Edge Hill is now one of the UK’s leading universities and a popular choice for postgraduate students looking to undertake world-leading research, advance their career prospects, or specialise in their field.
Awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework for teaching that is “of the highest quality found in the UK” - the university provides an environment that inspires students to push the boundaries of their knowledge and make a real difference. The university has also been recognised for its outstanding achievements in student support, graduate employment and research innovation. These recognitions have led to Edge Hill being shortlisted for University of the Year (WUSCA, 2020), notably rated top university in the North West.
Each year, Edge Hill welcomes a community of over 3,000 postgraduate students to study on its beautiful, award-winning campus, which has benefitted from a £300m investment over the last decade. Latest developments include a new Technology Hub, a 60-acre Sport and Leisure complex, and a new Catalyst building, home to the library and student services.
The campus is located in the thriving Lancashire town of Ormskirk, close to Liverpool and Manchester. A vast range of cultural, natural, and social activities can be found either directly on campus or within easy reach – providing students with a highly rewarding and life-changing study experience.
Edge Hill University Students on Postgraduate Search say:
“Well, the fact that I did an undergraduate, came back and did a postgraduate and also work for the university says it all. I think the best thing about the university is the campus. As students we are spoilt for choice, we have every facility that we could possibly need without having to battle with the business of living in a city.”
“I am thoroughly enjoying my time at Edge Hill, it has been much better than my previous experience at undergraduate level (at another university). The amount of support is tremendous, I feel a part of the 'Edge Hill community' and this place has outstanding facilities.”
“I love going here, I did my undergrad degree here and thought it was amazing, the tutors are so supportive and welcoming. Both courses I have done here have been amazing, I have loved doing my subjects.”
Postgraduate study offers several benefits. Whether it’s to gain new qualifications, change career, acquire specialist skills, or undertake research, Edge Hill strives to help students achieve their personal and professional aspirations.
Since its inception in 1885, the university has been creating graduates who make a real difference in transforming communities and shaping individuals’ lives. This has been possible due to its strengths in research, innovative facilities and high-quality teaching - rated in the top third of all UK universities (TEF Gold, 2017).

Offering one of the highest employability rates in the sector, the university provides an inspiring and supportive learning environment that empowers students to achieve their potential.
