Edge Hill was founded in 1885 as the first non-denominational teacher training college for women, admitting 45 students. Since then it has grown to become an academic community of 10,000 full time students, a further 6,000 on part time professional development programmes and nearly 4,000 staff.
The Edge Hill university campus is in Ormskirk, 15 miles from Liverpool. Safest Campus in the North West for third year running (Complete University Guide). Top 20 campus for making a great first impression – making students feel at home straight away (YouthSight 2014).
