good university, wasn't much going on within student union compared to other universities that my friends attend. But overall a good uni (excellent for anyone wanting to take drama)

Studying at Liverpool John Moores University
Liverpool John Moores University, situated in the city centre, is the largest university in Liverpool. It is spread out over three campuses and is known for welcoming students from many different backgrounds. Accolades have included Liverpool John Moores being awarded the Queens Anniversary Prize (2005) and has also been recognised as a world-leading research University for 70% of the research undertaken. The University is proud to accept students from all over the world and hosts students from over 100 different countries.
Liverpool John Moores aims to ensure students are given opportunities to increase their employability throughout their time at University, including the World of Work programme which is included as part of every undergraduate course. The University has strong links with companies such as Sony, Marks and Spencer, NHS and Airbus which gives students the chance to get involved with placements and internships.
The six faculties at the University cover a diverse range of subjects including Engineering, Business and Law, Education, Sciences and Technology. Liverpool John Moores is known for its excellent teaching and research but particularly for Engineering and Sports and Exercise Sciences teaching. There are over 1600 work spaces available in the library and 68,500 books accessible to students as well as thousands of journals and e-books.
With three campuses spread out over the city there are also three Students Union buildings, one on each campus. The Unions offer committee rooms, Student Activities Centre, shops, cafes and bars as well as ‘The Workbank’ which helps students to get involved with work whilst at University. There is also the opportunity for students to get involved with the ‘Looprevil Press’, the student newspaper funded by the students union.
The city itself offers a vibrant night-life with bars and pubs such as the Cavern Club made famous by The Beatles, as well as plenty of restaurants and cafes along the waterfront for a change of scene. There is plenty in the way of entertainment such as the Echo Arena, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, the Liverpool Empire for Broadway musicals as well as local performances and the Tate Liverpool and Walker Art Gallery for art lovers. For sports fans, all students get free access to the City Councils Lifestyle Fitness Centres which includes access to swimming pools, tennis courts, gyms, golf courses and fitness classes. For shopping fanatics Liverpool offers hundreds of shops and boutiques all within easy access from student accommodation.
Facility wise, I don't think there are enough computers in Byrom St campus as sometimes classes are on then we have no access to those rooms. There is also no quiet space to go study inbetween lectures and the library isn't always that quiet
I'm so glad I came to this university over the Uni of Liverpool. The staff at the university are so lovely and willing to help you with any problem you may have during the duration of the course. The rating on campus will vary as there are different buildings, I am fortunate enough to attend Redmonds building which is the most modern one.
Disappointed with the help and support from John Moore's university. Also disappointed with the attitude received from lecturers during teaching as they showed no enthusiasm towards the course topic. This led to me moving to Hope university in Liverpool which has a much friendlier atmosphere and tutors have made the effort to get to know students.
From my experience the lectures put their heart and soul into their job and try their up most best to ensure you have the best support possible. Fabulous Eduacation studies team and feel privelidged to have spent three wonderful years there
The campuses don't actually feel like campuses, more just like 2 or 3 buildings. Everything is so spaced out which is annoying for student halls. The teaching is normally really good however the exam preparation we have been given isn't great. I do really like my course but would be better if you could pick your modules in the second year.
Couldn't use WiFi as their system didn't allow nexus 5s to connect. Not really important as you get 4g everywhere. My course was mainly independent so having poor lecturers wasn't so bad but the worst part is probably having no work for weeks then 4 assignments in for the same day or something similar. Good uni. I do enjoy the course all slandering aside
I have a applied for a postgraduate study at LJMU. First week of enrolment I have cancelled my enrolment for personal reasons. Although I have made several attempts, I was unable to speak to the course leader until the end of second week. Leader's unavailability has caused me to pay 207 admin fee for the two weeks which I have never attended neither present at classes.
Byron street campus is ugly AF. No support, students union is pretty much non existent. Lecturers are racist, chauvinist pigs. Not an inspiring place at all, 0/10 would not recommend. Seriously. Don't put yourself through it. Much better ways to spend £9000 a year.
