Who Chooses this Program?
Edge Hill University is a great setting for students who want to experience English life outside of London and have a great home base for exploring the rest of the country. Students who like to balance work and play will feel at home with Edge Hill’s well-regarded academic programs and lively and active student body. Study-abroad students here form particularly strong connections to the university, as they get to know their classmates through residence halls, classes, and extracurricular activities. It’s an ideal program for hard workers who are ready to form new friendships and change the way they see the world.
My study abroad experience has definitely affected my future plans. I am now planning to return to England and complete my Masters degree. It’s changed how I think about myself, my field and international relations. It helped to sensitize me to events beyond U.S. borders.
