Stu­dents put univer­sity at the top

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

EDGE Hill Univer­sity has been voted best in the North West by stu­dents in four cat­e­gories in this year’s WhatUni Stu­dent Choice Awards.

Hav­ing been placed na­tion­ally in the top 10 by stu­dents for the Univer­sity of the Year ti­tle, Edge Hill ranks top in the re­gion for this cat­e­gory, as well as for Best Univer­sity Fa­cil­i­ties, Best Job Prospects and Best Stu­dent Sup­port.

The awards, now in their sev­enth year, are based on thou­sands of stu­dent re­views and feed­back.

Glow­ing com­ments from Edge Hill stu­dents which con­trib­uted to the univer­sity be­ing placed in­cluded re­views such as “I love the peo­ple at Edge Hill, the at­mos­phere and the sup­port you get” to “lec­tures are very encouragin­g, par­tic­u­larly when it comes to ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties”.

Many said they “couldn’t rec­om­mend enough” with com­pli­ments on how “lovely” the cam­pus is and plenty feel­ing ready to go out into the world with re­views such as “I feel well pre­pared to start a suc­cess­ful ca­reer”.

Vice-Chan­cel­lor Dr John Cater said: “We gen­uinely put stu­dents at the heart of ev­ery­thing we do and to fea­ture as be­ing best in the North West re­gion is tes­ti­mony to our com­mit­ment – it shows we are def­i­nitely do­ing things right.

“I’d like to thank ev­ery one of our stu­dents for tak­ing the time to com­ment, it means a lot.

“Re­views are vi­tal to im­prov­ing the stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence and we en­sure we use the feed­back from our stu­dents to con­tinue to in­vest in the high­est qual­ity teach­ing, learn­ing and fa­cil­i­ties, it ben­e­fits ev­ery­one – the stu­dents them­selves, the em­ploy­ers who re­cruit our ca­pa­ble and con­fi­dent grad­u­ates and the peo­ple whose lives are en­riched with our alumni com­mu­nity.”

Edge Hill is also one of only two on the short­list for the North­ern Univer­sity of the Year ti­tle in this year’s Ed­u­cate North Awards, to be an­nounced later this year.
