Nice but grim

AdvantagesCheap, lots to do, loads of different types of pubs, nice people on the whole, good lecturers (n the fac.of science)

DisadvantagesRain

"...on end. The thing is that Liverpool is worth it. Rain aside it's a great place to live and study. Things are cheaper than most other places in the country for a start. For example, if I wanted to get drunk of an evening, but not spend too much cash, I could easily find deals like doubles for a pound or one pound a pint. (turns to imaginary camera) Nice. Theres also places with a bit more class, if you are that way inclined- which I often am. Ok. ..." Read review

Capital of Culture

AdvantagesLocation, prices, friendly

Disadvantagesnothing

"...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 had been to Liverpool was to visit the University for my an interview. On first appearnaces it seemed absolutely huge. There was no way I would ever be able to find my way around it! The department for my course looked very old fashioned inside, but the surroundings were so lovely ..." Read review

You'll Never Walk Alone...

Advantagesrelatively cheaper, friendly people

Disadvantagestoo far from london, a bit lacking in entertainment

"...far about the place. People in Liverpool are very very friendly and you can sometimes have quite an interesting chat with anybody you meet on the street. If you need help you can ask and they will help you. Compared to London and other much bigger cities where people can be hostile, there is a very friendly atmosphere here. If you're planning to apply here, try get into the University Halls as it will make making friends much much easier. I ..." Read review

pool of life!

Advantagesgood course, central location, friendly locals.

Disadvantagesthe 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 which is 2 years, the lectures are good and i have just finished a really good placement which has given me really good social work experience. i find that ..."

Liverpool University is A great Place

AdvantagesCity centre campus..Good all round reputation. Friendly

DisadvantagesSome modern buildings are ugly

"...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.The city also is very well known outside of Britain and is I guess best known after London. They were both reliable sources of information. I thoroughly enjoyed ..." Read review

Liver-cool university?

AdvantagesCheap, fun, friendly people, good nightlife

Disadvantagesscallies 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 some parts are under development. Some buildings are pleasent whilst others are grungy and horrible, but that's to be expected I suppose. University ..." Read review

An absolutely brilliant place to study!

AdvantagesEverything

DisadvantagesNone

"...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 may loads of really good friends. Apart from the halls, the university itself is very respected and deservedly so. The courses and teaching are of a very high standard and also ..." Read review

de do do, don't de do la

AdvantagesFriendly and inexpensive

DisadvantagesSome 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 and so I travelled up by train. I'm from London and this was the furthest North I have ever been. On arriving here two things struck me, one that people ..." Read review

Cathedral Campus

AdvantagesGreat city, nightlife and people

Disadvantagessmall 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 Liverpool famous Anglican Cathedral and many of the houses have a stunning view of the building. The beauty of it is lost however on a sunday morning after a particularly ..." Read review

Lots to Offer

AdvantagesCost, Nightlife,People

DisadvantagesCrime

"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 Kensington and around the area where the main halls of residence are based, basically Wavertree and out towards Allerton. Neither are particularly nice, but ..." Read review

Depends what you're after

AdvantagesGood facilities, good teaching

DisadvantagesDepressing buildings, no greenery, no open spaces, union isn't great, societies have no variety

"...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 exactly praise-worthy. It has taken them 6 weeks to properly establish the final timetable of lessons. When actually enrolling the admin behind that was a shambles, ..." Read review

Advantage is more than Disadvantage

Advantagespeople and environment

Disadvantagescrime

"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 safety so it is better not to go out late. If you want to go out, it is better to have someone accompany with you. The library in this university is not very ..." Read review

Don't Bother

AdvantagesShopping is great and the city is nice

DisadvantagesThe uni is badly organised and the guild is dreadful

"...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 good and well run societies and while it may be cheaper than some places overall the guild isn't and so no one goes there which means going to town in the evening and eventually you end ..."
