University ranked in the top 10 of all UK higher education providers
THE WhatUni Student Awards,
which are given to the universities that have been rated the highest
for each category by students themselves, placed Edge Hill 6th in
the country in this important category. It is the 2nd time the
University has been listed in the top 10 for providing an
exceptional teaching and learning experience for students, with a
rating of 83%. Comments from students about the courses and their
lecturers describe Edge Hill as:- "the best Uni ever",
"always happy to help with any questions or problems",
"outstanding University", "the attention from
tutors excellent" and it "exceeds expectations".
In addition, almost nine out of ten students would recommend the
University to others for providing a good all round experience.
Vice-Chancellor Dr John Cater said:- "It is fantastic news to
hear that our students rank our courses and lecturers among the best
in the country. We really pride ourselves in offering a quality
teaching and learning experience and this award is testimony to the
work we put in. Our students consistently rate the University highly
for its performance and student satisfaction, I think this is
because we invest heavily in their personal development. We
introduce initiatives designed to help the students develop their
academic skills within the first few weeks of starting University,
and we place the student experience at the centre of everything we
do. Edge Hill students have brighter employment prospects and more
opportunities to achieve than ever before. We want students to
succeed and we will continue to work hard to ensure that everything
we do supports their progress." The WhatUni website is
visited by more than 70,000 potential applicants every week, and
contains student reviews of more than 500 providers of further and
"MY name is Ruth Moore, and
I'm researching my family history. My ancestors, the Rimmers, lived
in Southport in the 1800s, and my great-great-grandfather, Seth
Luther Rimmer, received a large obituary in the Southport Guardian.
I am wanting to know more about Southport, and particularly to get
hold of old road maps and copies of old newspapers from the time my
ancestors lived there, but I'm unsure who to contact. If your
readers could help me, I would very much appreciate it."
Regards, Ruth Moore.

Also if we get any information our selves, we will again let you
know. Good luck in your quest to find out more about your
family's history. If any of our readers can help, please
news desk and we will let Ruth know."
The Museum of
THE Museum of Liverpool has
already attracted over half a million people through its doors. With
8,000 metres of public space, it is the world’s first national
museum devoted to the history of a regional city: looking at Britain
and the world through the eyes of Liverpool. 6,000 objects showcase
popular culture, and tackle social, historical and contemporary
issues, to tell the story of Liverpool’s unique contribution to the
world. We had a sneak preview of what the Queen will see on her
visit to officially and fully open it. It has been partially open
since 19 July 2011, but the new attractions should prove an even
great draw. These are a few photographs we took of the new History
section. More in photos of the final preparations in next weeks issue!
