I hated this academic year. I received very little support and did not feel as though I was a student. Lecturers were rude and often unresponsive with issues that I may have. They were not understanding of the pandemic being difficult.
The career service is brilliant
Since the pandemic I have found that many lecturers have not taken teaching seriously. Many of the lectures were pre-recorded with very little interaction with the lecturers themselves. I filed a serious complaint against a lecturer and never received a response
The university have great facilities relevant to any course including camera equipment, a moot room, multiple libraries which are all accessible.
If you reach out to the support it is amazing although it can be difficult to get financial support
It doesn’t really feel like I have done a year of university due to it being all online. All of the assessments were changed from blended- such as group projects and presentations to just essays, and so there has been little interaction with other students and lecturers.
Online lectures and seminars are useful but do not feel that engaging as most students do not have their cameras on and only half of them tend to show up. Also haven’t had that much interaction with other people on the course.
Only been to the library which was a very useful facility with good covid guidelines.
Haven’t used them but have seen that they are available in multiple places.
Overall i would say the experience wasn’t bad at all, sadly COVID-19 took over and we were not able to have a proper university experience. The university was always happy to help me and i would definitely recommend anyone to john moores for nursing or any other degree.
John moores provide job fairs for students who do nursing, this is where numerous trusts come and give you details about current jobs they have coming up and how to apply. Lecturers are always happy to help with reference for job applications.
During COVID-19 the lectures have tried to make it as easy as possible for student nurses. They have become more available during assignments and other problems. They have also planned out all lectures online and made it easy for students to interact.
The university is well laid out for students. Staff are always happy to help out if a student is lost etc. Library services are great as well as they can help with assignments and finding books. Toilets and surroundings are always kept clean. Cleaners are always about and are great at their job. Plenty of computers and printers to use.
The university is great for a students wellbeing, they are always happy to help all it takes is an email. The university is fully accessible for disabled students, lifts etc. There is also support for students who have no money and need help.
A brilliant course that captures your imagination in ways you could not believe. From speaking to a champions league winner and the captain of the USA women's national team Rebecca Smith I learnt so much about the works of the football industry. This is a perfect course for anyone who is interested in sport, I would highly recommend!
I love the staff, the students and the city. I just wish the pandemic hadn’t robbed me of most of my first two years. Hoping my final year will be like it was at the beginning. Liverpool is a great city and Liverpool John Moores is a great uni resort.
We are constantly updated on graduate opportunities and there are sessions to prepare for leaving university. My own course offers various work related modules and constantly encourage us to start making contacts.
On normal circumstances, the course is predominantly face to face teaching. Lectures and workshops. Guest speakers. Really good fun and thoroughly enjoyable. During the pandemic the lecturers have done their very best to keep that atmosphere under very difficult circumstances. Circumstances beyond their control. I do not believe any university should be charging full fees for this period, not just LJMU. The extra costs due to the pandemic and lack of access to libraries etc means extra costs for the students. Buying books and supplies that they can normally use for free. My first year was fantastic and affordable however this year I am in debt and have struggled. The tutors have done all they can to help.
The facilities are great though the pandemic has limited use of them. I am really looking forward to the new Liverpool Life Building opening up when restrictions allow.
The student wellbeing team are very approachable and very helpful. The tutors will also do everything they can to support the students. Even the ladies in the coffee shop will lend an ear if you need it!
Could be better enhanced by atleast blended learning, but has been fairly pleasant considering the circumstances. However, i don’t think this year has been a great value for money whatsoever. Although helping me progress in the right direction, it should not have been full tuition price.
Not happened yet, only in foundation
Online, was blended teaching but professors have acclimated really well to the pandemic. I find difficulty reaching tutors sometimes and I wish I had more lessons. However, I think this foundation year has been very valuable towards my end goal.
Can’t access any of the libraries efficiently like I used to be able to, however when they were open it was clean and easy.
Incredibly supportive well-being, disability and finance team.
It was hard to do my courseworks as I had no physical support from anyone. My person tutor was very helpful but that’s really it. I feel like most of the lectures material was not worth the money. Some tutors didn’t even reply to emails. Stuck in a uni accommodation for a year with no possibility to go to uni.
Was promised loads of work experience jobs related to my course but they only showed us one that unpaid
Minimum hours and presentations for most of them
When it was open it was good, I haven’t used anything this year
When you ask for help you usually receive it
This year has obviously been a challenging one with the ongoing pandemic. However, the online recorded lectures and live sessions have been delivered to a high standard. It has been very useful to be able to revisit the recorded lectures at a later date to help with revision.
It was taught face-to-face for the first two and a half years until the pandemic. It has since been online teaching only and I feel it has been handled well by the university and the individual lecturers.
Ive loved my time at the uni. Supportive environment. Great people and awesome city. Staff see the value in work experience, they have lots of connections so there are always opportunities to get involved with different companies (volunteering/ paid work/ placement). The modules are great and reflective or knowledge you will actually need to know rather than just being taught it for the sake of it.
Careers team are great with CV advice and mock interviews. Lots of online tools to practice job applications tests.
Engaging lectures. Experienced and supportive teaching staff.
Great library and study facilities
Very supportive staff. Places where you can get more support (academic or mental) is very clear and easy to access
Uni has been good, I just feel as though the fact that it is online has made it not worth while, I feel like it is much harder than what it was meant to have been with it being online and having to teach ourselves, I also find it hard because we haven’t been able to meet classmates or lecturers so everyone still feels like strangers which makes you not want to ask questions or speak to anyone, however there’s not much anyone can do about it and for the situation I feel as tho they have done the best they could. The price should have been reduced a bit tho, full price for studying online is a joke.
