Worst experience ever in my life. I studied in 3 different countries and this was definitely the worst university I attended. My M.Sc was absolutely low quality and professors lazies and unhelpful (the practical part absolutely a joke). University facilities old and out of date, no activities for international students, waste my money for nothing (I had not bursary). I would discourage to study at this university.
My time at LJMU has been an amazing experience. I have enjoyed my course and that was made possible by the state-of-the-art facilities and welcoming staff at the university that gave my the support I needed to suceed. The campus has always been presented professionally and it's location is prime with close proximity to student accomodations and the city centre, with easy to locate buildings.
From my course that I have chosen I did not have the best first year, the facilities where acceptable but not in any way creative or inspirational for an art course. There could definitely be more clubs and societies towards arts but most are for sports.
Amazing university! really helpful staff on other campus'. however if your studying on IM Marsh you often feel forgotten about and personally my tutor has not been their for us at all this year. however i have heard very good things about other tutors!
I find my lecturers to be super helpful, and everything is online using the Canvas system. There's a Starbucks and a generics cafe in the James Parsons campus, with the Avril Robarts a 5 minute walk away. Theres loads of facilities to work and socialise on campus. I really enjoyed my time at LJMU, and I'm sad to be leaving!
since most of the reviews here are from cute grandmas trying to be nice here's a real one of an engineering experience: ljmu has a reputation for being the best choice for saudi, qatari and kuwaiti students who aren't qualified to finish middle school but welling to be a bachelor holder. and LJMU as an opportunist has adopted the engineering courses to help those students pass. so academically everything in ljmu is way easier than any good uni worldwide. this path of corruption was taken by the director of engineering John Carrier, this crook bird looking mo fo made all test and assignments online to those student can hire pakestani teachers to do it for them. now you might think I'm a racist but no you are just sensitive cause i'm spitting facts here. now let me tell you about facilities, the uni has no campus it's just some building around the center of liverpool and the best one is miles away from the rest. the uni has no gym all courts so you have to waste extra money
During my first year at John Moores I have been surprised at the lack of time tabling for my course. Only having three hours of lectures and six hours of seminars spread across two days of the week almost seemed pointless to me. It felt as though there wasn’t enough contact time and that we haven’t learnt an awful lot. However the university is very good at forcing you into a situation where you appreciate independent study, as that is where you gain the most knowledge for the course, the teachers are all good people and are eager to help anyone in any spare time that they have. The option to go to other repeat seminars is available also which I found useful because if I didn’t grasp something in my first seminar I could join in with another and make sure my understanding was then solid.
Fine until forced to switch to online teaching during COVID-19 which as consisted of poorly made PowerPoint and not much else, despite many other universities offering live lectures and supporting students through this already drastic change. You cannot teach yourself at degree level with just a PowerPoint, and it is most certainly not worth the fees. Sort yourself out LJMU
I've had an amazing experience at this uni. Wouldn't trade it for the world. Will be really sad to go, I wish I didnt ever have to. Obviously like all things in life, it isnt perfect and theres room for improvement but I'm leaving knowing I'm leaving a legacy behind, and thatll do me. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to true have the time of their life
Honestly, do not even consider this University for your undergraduate or postgraduate degree. I started my MSc programme here and was treated terribly by uncoordinated staff and lazy lecturers. Worst of all however, was the complete disregard for students personal issues and wellbeing. I informed the University I couldn't pay my tuition until a week later due to late paychecks and utility bills. The University responded by taking the tuition straight out of my bank account and when I complained about this, there response was "its automatic, you cant get a refund" which put me in a really bad place. Do NOT consider this University, as they only see you as revenue.
Wow. How disappointing! From day 1 I’ve had issues with my time table and modules due to their administration errors (which I still continue to fix myself). Trying to get help with your modules is a myth. ironically the Student engagement officers cancel your appointments and completely ignore your feedback. We pay almost £10,000 a year and yet the lecturers can’t be bothered to turn on the mic in lecture halls of 200+ students, so you can’t hear anything. Absolutely shocking. I’ve moved back to the uk to attend university and it’s the biggest mistake I’ve made thus far. I’m currently looking to transfer universities as I can’t bare another year at this place.
LJMU is a widely diverse university with great campuses located around the city. However, there is no SU location for events and some campuses are outdated and old. On the plus side, the lectures are great and incredibly helpful like all the staff across the university. I would definitely recommend John Moores as it is a very fun university to attend.
Im doing a masters at Liverpool John Moores university and I’m having a great time! The roadworks are a pain at the minute but the university has worked hard in making sure all the students are safe and well looked after.
My Campus (Mount Pleasant) is great. Good, modern library. Always staff there to help if you need anything. The well being services are also great, the support not only from the student advice & wellbeing team is excellent but also from the tutors. I have found that even if someone is not your personal tutor, they are always on hand to talk and are happy to arrange a meeting with you. Another perk is that you get printing credits & on my course (Law) you get all of your core books for free! This is a massive bonus considering it's this stuff that all adds up! The careers help is excellent. Receive numerous emails a week about things we can be doing, employability fairs / events, careers meetings, talks etc. There are so many societies etc. The lectures are also really good. The majority of my lecturers have been great and have made subjects that I can't stand... interesting! I can't fault my university at all, I'll be sad to go!
New to LJMU. Some absolutely lovely people working here, can't do enough to help you. Then there are those who seemingly go out of their way to make you feel inferior. I can even give an example- I was walking down a busy hallway and apologised to the person coming toward me because I couldn't move over any further. I was forced to stop because this person was a teacher who refused to move over a little to let me by. Instead, he made a production of it and stated "You're going to have to move, because I'm not going to move." I know this seems like a small thing, but I felt humiliated by this, his friend even stood and watched. I believe it was rather rude. Especially as I did not know where I was going and I also apologised for being in the way in the first place. People here either a pleasure or arrogant jerks.
Im a current student of ljmu studying at their franchised school of architecture in SriLanka. It is my biggest disappointment to study at this campus due the level of responsibility and validation ljmu engaged in our franchised course. The local professors are biased and picks on certain students for personal reasons. The course was a rollercoaster of mental harrassments and unethical activities through academic assessments. I tried complaining about these issues to the main campus, but no proper action was taken.
Health and Wellbeing not good; don't follow up students who have made contact, this is not good if they are suffering from anxiety or depression. What are they there for? Students leave who can't cope, students suffer short and long term. And no one tells tells their next of kin.
LJMU is undoubtedly the most inadequate university in the country. I sat a masters degree and LJMU will not even allocate the credits I passed, leaving simply because I was completely unsupported and they even refused to accept a student loan for fees. Simply the university from top to bottow are inadequate and the sooner that Ofsted get themselves in there and close this establishment the better. I would like to call LJMU an educational establishment but simply they do not provide a suitable level of provision even if education was free and never mind nine grand a year. Please avoid.
One of the biggest scams I’ve endured in my life was going to LJMU. On open day they promised me the world and claimed that every student gets a job upon graduating in their field of study. All of the “dream, plan, achieve” was just a vague motto that was meant to reel in vulnerable people. LJMU should offer a disclaimer to state that going to their institute could be a costly waste of time.
MSc in Astrophysics by distance learning: Horrible, miserable staff, unprofessional, a totally disgrace, ridiculous system, please don't waste your money...!!! Lack of feedback, no exam solutions provided, poor communication, invest your money in other institution. They have no idea what means distance learning no support and no way to learn anything..!!!!
Did a journalism degree at LJMU, please go elsewhere - this uni is the worst "education" I've ever experienced. I pretty much spent £9000 a year to self-teach. The students are flat and boring but at least their better than the lecturers. The journalism lecturers are unhelpful, rude and unprofessional - how they ever made it to the top tier of teaching is a complete joke.
The Drama course is one of the least organised efforts in all of humanity's history. The vast majority of the course tutors have displayed astronomic levels of arrogance, incompetence, pomposity and un-earned braggadocio that has made the £9,250 a year cost for the pleasure of their company hard to swallow. In terms of ability, most of these tutors wouldn't make the grade at the majority of primary schools and the communication between staff members could only be made worse if they hired mimes instead of PHDs.
Fine art is very poor. Hardly any contact with tutors or lecturers. My tutor has spent a little more than twenty minutes with me all year. She still doesn't know all the names of her tutor group even. No one is remotely interested in students or their work. Staff go through the motions needed to be paid and disappear. So gutted I chose to come here. There isn't enough room or equipment. Libraries are excellent but everything else is extremely poor value for money.
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.
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.
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
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'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.
