Student Testimonials:
"Get to know another country by getting to know the people who live there! You might find yourself making some of the best friends that you have ever had. When I look back on my semester here at Edge Hill, I will not be able to remember every fact about the city of Liverpool. Instead, I'll remember the karaoke nights in the Student Union, and the late nights we spent just chatting about nothing in particular in the common room. The sights make a trip special, but the people make a trip memorable."
Sally Lynch

"Edge Hill University has a wonderful atmosphere that helps the American student to adjust to the English culture, and the scenic campus is very conducive for a studious and relaxing experience."
Burton Bridges

"A great experience! Learning about English culture was fascinating, and I really enjoyed the beautiful countryside as well as the fast-paced and energetic London scene. Edge Hill was great; the campus was amazing and really conducive to studying. The trip was one of my best college experiences, and a journey that I will remember forever."
Karen Brandon

"I had an amazing opportunity to spend a month at Edge Hill University as a student in CBU's summer study abroad program. I only wish I could have stayed longer."
