Edge Hill’s Vice-Chancellor Dr John Cater said: “This is an excellent achievement. It’s a huge honour to be shortlisted, but for Edge Hill to appear in five different categories, including the only North West university in the running for University of the Year, is incredible. It’s a clear testament to our steadfast focus on providing the very best University experience for all our students.

“I’d like to extend my thanks and congratulations to all of the staff who put students at the heart of everything we do, and of course our students, who collectively make us one of the very best places to study, live and work.”

Edge Hill’s success at the WUSCA comes after it was named Modern university of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.
