About the institution

Edge Hill University began in 1885 as a teacher training college for women from which Helena Normanton, the first woman to practise as a barrister in England, graduated. It is still one of the country’s leading providers of teacher training, but now offers a wide range of other courses and was named University of the Year in the 2014 Times Higher Education Awards. Its campus is in the north west of England near Ormskirk in Lancashire and the majority of first year students choose to live there.
