USD Sponsored: Edge Hill University
** Indicates rolling admission application process. Applicants will be immediately notified of acceptance into this program and be able to complete post-decision materials prior to the term's application deadline.
Edge Hill University is situated in the heart of the North West of England. Based close to the historic town of Ormskirk with Liverpool to the east, Manchester to the west, the Lake District to the north and Cheshire to the south, there is no better place to start exploring what this exciting and diverse region has to offer!
Universities in the United Kingdom approach academics in a very different way than in the United States. Students may not receive a syllabus and, if they do, it will not contain the same amount of detail provided in USD syllabi. Students are expected to pursue more independent study outside of the classroom while still continuing preparation for final exams. This course layout allows students the opportunity to pursue personal academic interests within the context of the course without having the additional reading and writing assignments typically found within the American higher educational system. Students’ grades will typically be only based on a final exam.
Students typically choose to live in single rooms in on-campus dormitories in Ormskirk. They are self-catered and there is also access to local restaurants and student cafeterias. All our accommodation is based on one campus, so everything you need for studying and leisure time is close by. Housing is included as part of the program fee.
Edge Hill is a USD Sponsored program, which means students will not pay tuition/fees to USD, rather, a program fee (covering tuition/fees, and living expenses) will be paid directly to Edge Hill. Students will continue to receive any federal financial aid (with the exception of federal work/study) and most USD scholarships (Coyote Commitment, Mickelson, Presidential-Alumni, SD Opportunity, and Ullyot).
