The city is daunting. There’s a high crime rate and lots going on here but the uni is really good and supportive. I’m glad that LJMU has given me the number of opportunities to enhance my time here in sports, going abroad and ability to network and think about my future.
Loads of networking events! It offers opportunities to work / study abroad and get work placements. We have our own area for careers advice in the library where you can discuss your plans
I enjoy my lectures and smaller seminars which allow us to focus on applying what we learn in our lectures. However sometimes the lecturers have such strong accents you cannot understand them. It’s good to have people from different parts of the world as we obviously have international students too - but we also need to be able to understand them.
It’s good but seems to lack student engagement. The uni puts on lots of events but not many are that popular
There’s loads of computers available to use. Even if the library is full at exam time, you are able to find some available in the buildings where there is free space. We are able to rent the sports halls and Astro turf for activities when we want. There’s a Starbucks coffee area in one of my buildings and cafes in the other.
Our uni is split into three campuses. My campus is right in the centre but sometimes for exams we have to travel to one of the really far away ones for an exam at 9am. This is something that they’re working on but the new one won’t be built in time for my year to enjoy.
I am part of a sport society and it’s great but I spend a lot of money on travel.
The tutoring is really bad. Most of us do not know who our tutors are but our feedback isn’t bad.
It was fantastic studying here, I had the opportunity to learn my subject with understanding of all its dimensions, the facilities were as per need of international student,
Their career counselling department covers every aspect to help student to become a better professional
I loved the fact that course is up to need of market.
They are cooperative
academically they are excellent
They are great
They are excellent in that
University has its ups and downs. It has been amazing overall, my independence has grown since moving away from Ireland. LJMU has really helped me settle back in to university life. Changing degree was a difficult move but all my tutors were so supportive and gave me extra help to get me up to speed with the other students. I love university life and the student ways of living although sometimes it is difficult. I am excited to see what the next year brings, to overcome new challenges and grove and develop in my academic and professional career.
We take an employability module in the first semester of second year to aid in applications for placements. We took part in mock interviews and assessment centres to help prep for placements. The uni email us with jobs that we might be interested in and the employability support unit are great as you can have 1:1 meetings on how you can make yourself more employable.
I like how they are split into seminars and lectures. Seminars are more engaging as it’s a smaller group. I feel like I learn more there than lectures. I dislike some of my modules as I feel they are not relevant as to what I want to do and the lectures are boring because of it
The union have improved over the last year targeting campaigns which matter and are applicable to students. Very insightful and are always trying to make the university a community rather than a place of work.
They are great! There are lots of coffee machines and great social areas and a Starbucks in most building s
Yes my buildings are in the city centre and not far form all the shops making it so accessible to go into town after lectures.
There are a wide variety of sports and societies, something for everyone and a great way to meet friends as a fresher, would 100% recommend
It is great, if I ever had a worry I can send an email and set up a meeting with my tutors and they will see me straight away. I can email and ask questions and I usually get a response in 24 hours so it doesn’t delay me from doing my work.
Overall I have enjoyed my time at university. It has been a very good learning experience and I have made many new friends and expanded my knowledge a lot since arriving. I will be sad to leave
There are specific employability lectures and workshops as well as the advertisement of part time jobs/apprenticeships etc on their Facebook and webpage
I like least when there is a large gap between lectures and so there will be a 3 hour gap in which you have to find a way to occupy your time if you don’t have work to do. I like how the lecturers interact with the students
There are regularly student union backed activities and stands in different ljmu buildings and so they are pretty easy to find and interact with if need be
There is pretty much everything you need in or around each building so there is rarely a reason to venture too far during a full lecture day
The university in general is quite well placed. My building is Byrom street and is relatively well placed but is not one of the very central buildings. Still very easily found and accessible though. Right by the museum and has good access to local shops and is a very short walk from the centre of town
There is a large variety of societies in Ljmu and the ability to make new ones if you desire or there isn’t already an existing one
It is pretty easy to get in touch with a lecturer for any feedback or help via email or canvas. There are also phone numbers and emails provided for any kind of professional help or counselling you may need provided by the uni
My course provides placement opportunities
except Marsh Gymnasium That's a Z
Need better than Marsh gymnasium
Always on hand
Enjoying it so far
Emails, fairs, workshops

Emails, job fairs, placement
Not involved but good range
Emails + job fairs
Good reps, they hard to support students
Good location, everything is accessible.
Good help with CV + cover letter
Good but can't join most because they clash
