My typical Edge Hill week

Student Life

Having just finished University for my second year, with only placement left, I thought reflecting on what a typical university week consists of would be quite interesting; particularly for any potential new students!


  • Monday is usually quite a quiet day for me as an education student, with only a lecture and a seminar in the morning and another seminar in the afternoon.
  • We usually grab lunch in the hub from Sages – Chips and Beans are the best!
  • Then it’s usually off to Wetherspoon’s for some drinks once me and my friends have finished for the day – Monday Club has some great deals!
  • Then it’s back to my flat at The Elms to finish re-watching Game of Thrones on the all-inclusive Sky package provided by McCombs.


  • Tuesday gives me a little bit of a lie in with seminars only starting at 11am – but that means I am in until 6pm! As bad as that sounds it is quite a good day, as we often grab a Subway from the campus shop in the SU to keep us sane.
  • After uni we head back home to get ready for Alpine Tuesdays. Tuesday particularly is a student night around Ormskirk, however, there isn’t just Alpine open. If you fancy a quieter night there are various bars around town open until late including Dinky Dory’s, Mad Hatter, Mimi and Gin and Nordico Lounge.
  • To finish the night off we usually head to the 24/7 McDonalds for a midnight snack.


  • Wednesday is my day off, so we usually head to the Gym on campus which is conveniently only a 20-minute walk away from most of McComb’s accommodations.
  • We then usually come back and relax in the communal space, maybe watch a film or two from Sky Cinema and then make some tea.
  • In the evening we usually *try* and get some work done by the kitchen table. With the superfast Wi-Fi provided by McComb journal searching is a breeze.


  • Back to uni! With campus only being a 15-minute walk away, I can still wake up at a reasonable time and be in time for my 9am.
  • Thursday is shopping day. Aldi is only 5 minutes away so it’s easy to grab some stuff and bring it back to the flat. If Aldi isn’t your thing then Morrisons is only across the road.
  • Then it is usually my time to chill, play Xbox, watch Netflix or continue our Game of Thrones binge into the night.


  • Friday is a quieter day in uni, with two seminars it is a bit more of a chill day.
  • Then it’s usually back to the flat to get ready for Friday Night Karaoke in the SU Bar. Guaranteed to be a fun night the Karaoke is very busy so arrive early to make sure you get a seat!

So that’s my typical week at Edge Hill. As you can see there is plenty going on; and with events regularly hosted by McComb such as Pizza Nights and FIFA Tournaments you’ll always be able to find something to do.

Hi! I’m Alex Greenhalgh and I am a second year at Edge Hill University studying Primary Education with QTS, and yes, I know I’m mad for going into that profession… (I’ve heard all the jokes) but I am keen to make a difference to the lives of the next generation. When I am not in University I enjoy cooking, gaming and the university students’ staple pass time, ‘spoons. My interests will be reflected with my blogs as they will have a strong focus on cooking. I understand the struggles and the endless trawls through Aldi looking for the best bargains, so I want to pass on a few insights into how cooking can be fun, inexpensive and tasty! I really do hope you enjoy reading my blogs!
