“Nice but grim”

published 06/04/2001

Cheap, lots to do, loads of different types of pub...

Rain

"It's grim up north lad", my old man said to me when I told him of my intentions to study at the university of liverpool. Well, ok he didnt really, but he should have done. You kind of get used to the rain though, I dont really think about it any more. If I were to do so, I would realise that on...

“Capital of Culture”

published 12/08/2004

Location, prices, friendly

nothing

'Oh my god you'll be wearing a shell suit soon!' was the immediate reposnse i received from all of my friends etc when i told them i was off to Liverpool University to study Ancient History and Archaeology. It made me wonder! But nothing was going to put me off my new adventure. The first time i...

“pool of life!”

published 24/07/2000

good course, central location, friendly locals.

the rain!

i moved from Dublin to Liverpool last September to do a post graduate course in social work. Although i loved being in dublin, i have settled well into life 'in the pool'. Accommodation at the university is adequate but being on campus makes up for lack of modern decor! i am enjoying my course...

“You'll Never Walk Alone...”

published 28/12/2005

relatively cheaper, friendly people

too far from london, a bit lacking in entertainmen...

I'm currently a student here, been here a few months. Obviously I have not been to any other Universities, so I cannot make clear-cut comparisons, but this is how i've felt so far about the place. People in Liverpool are very very friendly and you can sometimes have quite an interesting chat with...

Some modern buildings are ugly

I chose to read poltical science at Liverpool mainly on account of advice I received at my college in Malaysia and from my father,who was formerly an academic.Both the College staff and my father told me that the University had an excellent academic reputation and was renowned as a friendly place...

“Liver-cool university?”

published 13/05/2004

Cheap, fun, friendly people, good nightlife

scallies and tracksuits and orange people

I'm a first year at Liverpool University reading Medicine, and so I thought I'd write a review on the place so potential applicants get a feel for the place. The campus is just attached to the city centre and merges connects up to parts of the John Moores University campus. It is quite nice and...

“de do do, don't de do la”

published 14/04/2001

Friendly and inexpensive

Some areas to avoid

I've been studying in Liverpool for six years (long story!) and i love it here and will be sorry to go. The strange thing is it took me a while to realise this. When applying to univeristies, the only reason I applied to Liverpool was for the football. The univeristy invited me for an interview...

Everything

None

I may be slightly biased as I come from Liverpool but having just completed my first year of studying Politics and communication studies there, I have had the time of my life. I lived in Morton House in the Carnatic Halls of residence which may have been a dump but the atmosphere was great and...

“Cathedral Campus”

published 26/07/2000

Great city, nightlife and people

small rooms

Liverpool has over 20000 students and I, like many, attend Liverpool John Moores University. When students arrive for their first year they are often put into halls and I was one of of the 500 who inhabited Cathedral Campus near the centre of the city. The campus is built in the shadow of...

contradicting "Obviously I have not been to any other Universities" "Nightlife is quite interesting. Compared to other places that i've been to, liverpool is one of the cheapest, and on some days"

“Depends what you're after”

published 02/11/2006

Good facilities, good teaching

Depressing buildings, no greenery, no open spaces,...

On the whole, the University of Liverpool is alright. It's not amazing, but it is alright. It's about a 5 minute walk from the city centre which is really handy and is relatively easy to navigate around. My department, modern languages, is quite good, though the organisation of lessons isn't...

“Lots to Offer”

published 08/08/2000

Cost, Nightlife,People

Crime

Liverpool is a place although sounding rough and inspiring, which is a dead good place to be a student. I was there for 5 years, got my degree and had a really good time along the way. Liverpool as a palce too live is not the nicest place to live with the students living in basically two areas...

people and environment

crime

I was studying degree in Liverpool University and now I am doing a master degree in here. Why? I like it because of people and environment. People in here are very nice and helpful. The shopping area is concentrated so you will get everything you like in city centre. The only problem is the...

I started Liverpool University in 1995 did 1 year of Medicne and 1 1/2 years of Biochemistry and left due to financial problems. Due to the Great nights out in liverpool, you can get more great nights out in Liverpool to the pound than any other university in the UK. All scousers are very nice...

“Don't Bother”

Shopping is great and the city is nice

The uni is badly organised and the guild is dreadf...

In my opinion the thing about going to the University of Liverpool is that you don't really feel that you are at a university, you are just living in liverpool and attending a uni. There are no Uni run events, no summer and winter balls, the guild is rubbish as are halls. There aren't that many...
