Your Time to Shine

Edge Hil University Performing Arts Department is offering the opportunity for Year 12 students to experience and utilise the department's high-tech centre to create performance, develop skills and learn about studying Performing Arts at university. The Summer School will be taking place at Edge Hill University from Wednesday 28th to Saturday 31st July and will be of no cost to you; that's right, it's absolutely free!

This four day, three night residential visit will offer the opportunity to work in dance, drama, physical and visual theatre, theatre design, and music and sound design.

What's the deal?

During your stay with us you will:

  • Find out about studying performing arts at university;

  • Work with professional artists;

  • Create performance and perform in professional standard facilities;

  • See live performances;

  • Meet other prospective undergraduates;

  • Stay in university halls of residence;

  • Get a real flavour of university life;

  • Make some great friends.

It's not all work!

Once the day is done, it's time to relax and enjoy a great variety of social activities. As well as a trip off campus to a well known theatre, you will also take in a performance at our very own Rose Theatre. In addition to this we'll be trying our hand at activities like Samba drumming, team building and bowling, as well as trips to the Student Union, BBQs, quizzes and so much more.

Location, location, location

You'll be staying on campus in our stylish halls of residence where you will get your own student bedroom and have all meals provided on site. You'll spend every waking hour of every day learning and experiencing something new with the support and guidance of our current undergraduate students. And when the studying is over there will be plenty of socialising to do. You really will get a flavour of a university campus and student life and it's all totally free!
