Review Title: Architecture at LJMU!
I am enjoying my University experience immensely, our year has a tight bond, we go out together and celebrate in a huge group. Everyone on our course are also good friends with students in the above years and first year as we celebrate once a year by organizing a Ball. We Have started our own Architecture Society, the first one LJMU have ever had and are planning to run our own materials and stationary shop here in our new Art and Design Academy. The society will allow us to have our voices heard in order to improve our course and the way it is structured.
I would recommend our Uni to everyone planning on doing Architecture, Fine Art, Photography, Music and Graphics because we have the best facilities in the area and all the staff are very down to earth and supportive. The workshop has any RM machine you could possibly need and friendly on hand help when ever you need it. We also have advanced machinery such as the laser cutter which is quick and easy to use for model making in Architecture.
The Tutors on our course are extremely helpful, they give great constructive criticism and support you throughout the whole of the year. They told us at the beginning of the year that it would be incredibly difficult to fail this course and that they would prevent it as much as they could. The way to make the most of this is to ask them for their advice and opinion in order to make a great impression, but also to create a tutor - student bond which will be useful in later years!
The most important piece of advice I would give to any prospective student looking at attending LJMU is to research into the structure of the course and the marking scheme because this will be how you will be assessed for the next three years and you should know and understand the system so you know if it will suit you and the way you work!
