The Edge Hill Students’ Union is where campus really comes to life. Students become a member as soon as they enrol, giving them access to all opportunities and services including an annual programme of events, the student advice centre and over 60 student-led societies.
The Advice Team offers friendly, confidential advice to students who need help either academically or about personal issues. EHSU also strives to make sure that student voices are heard. Each year students elect a team of Sabbatical Officers to represent them on university committees to ensure changes students want to see are communicated to university leaders.
Edge Hill University students on Postgraduate search says:
The Students Union is really good and do all they can to listen to the students concerns and recommendations for the uni. They do make a lot of change. However as all student unions they can only change certain things and other changes have to go to the uni itself.
Clubs and societies
The students’ union manages a whole host of diverse clubs and societies to enrich the student experience. From sports teams, recreation and social societies to academic, political groups and faith and culture societies, there’s something for everyone.
They offer students an opportunity to pursue their passions, make new friends and get out their comfort zone to try something new.
If students can’t find a club or society that interests them, they are encouraged to start their own – they can simply fill out a form and find five other like-minded students to get started. Funding, advice, and facilities are all available for new societies. Societies usually run once a week and offer a relaxed and fun way to make friends.
Edge Hill University students on Postgraduate search say:
“Edge Hill has a large selection of different societies for all people, sporty people have your regular societies like rugby, hockey, football, American football etc. While for people that don't like to be sporty there are loads from not going out societies, to Harry Potter or Disney societies. There is something for everyone.”
