Seems great for STEM subjects, humanities subjects are sadly left behind and entirely underfunded. Don't even have a dedicated building for English. Very difficult to make friends at all, all friendships are made in halls, have yet to come across anyone on my English course who has made friends. Campus is ok, nothing too special but not bad. Library is too small for the amount of students and is impossible to get a seat most days. Not much sense of campus community. Just seems a money making exercise on the whole with not much else.
Very poor university. My grandmother passed away, as a result I had to go home - handle most funeral and other issues myself due to unfortunate circumstances. With this in mind and her personally funding me through university - you would expect this brought me all kinds of issues from mental to finance. After explaining this to the university and my tutors, I was given 2 days extra deadline to complete my coursework, which I thought personally was an absolute abomination, also after taking time off I was subject to letters being sent home, but no help or face to face chats with any member of staff - also being ignored by my tutor. After the funeral and I returned, I was greeted with quite substantial financial issues, I took up a part time job but the university refused to help relocate me or help me with any kind of hardship fund, I had to stay inside everyday for weeks eating rice and noodles because I couldn't even afford basic food. I moved university - best choice I made.
The university is OK however get the impression a lot of the staff are demoralised. Some of the lecturers in the psychology department are great others are frankly awful. Too many students not enough facilities greed seems to be the order of the day, Liverpool uni has been slipping down the rankings and I can see why, a terrible shame.
Avoid this university at all costs. One of my daughter's biggest mistakes in life was coming here. The student accommodation looks like a prison but to keep the thieves out. My daughter Francesca Leech was a student there for 3 years from 2013 to 2016 and the culture there is to rave all the time and she was pressured to take part by the other students in her accommodation. She then started to smoke and when she went out with her student colleagues to party there are people trying to get them to take drugs She became depressed and in her last year failed to take her failed to take her final exam. She saw a doctor who prescribed antidepressants and she felt that this university did not care in anyway about her depression. In 2016 she found out the her father/me had Mesothelioma cancer caused by asbestos poisoning and was given 12 months to live. After taking her medication her condition improved and she asked if she could take an extra year and take the exam but the university NO
Couldn't have imagined myself anywhere else. Lovely and friendly vibes around both the campus and the city. Also there are lots of academic recourses available to students, and always academic/personal help available when needed.
Do not take an Online Course with this university if you are a Canadian. You will not qualify for any Canadian tax tuition credit. This was misrepresented by the school and cost me $9000 in total credits. Don't make the same mistake I did.
I joined Liverpool University this year after getting the required A-levels. Since joining I have not enjoyed my experience. They use a system called vital to assess and also provide information but this is often very confusing and also slow. Furthermore, maintenance work on this has led to me failing some assignments as i have been cut off the internet. I would recommend going to another Uni, definitely should not be a Russel group.
It is very easy to feel at home in Liverpool and everyone is very friendly. The city is amazing and so easy to find your way around! The university itself has invested alot of money into refurbishment over the past few years. including both libraries, the student union, hall of residents and new teaching facilities. The Guild (student union) is always full of life and offering a whole host of societies (sports, volunteering, social etc). There are also regular jobs fairs, both part time and graduate entry. The IT facilities around campus are superb, with free wifi pretty much everywhere on campus. Hundreds of computers available, with library computers accessible 24/7 during term times. There are also laptops available to borrow within the library. However it is quite concerning to see signs around campus advertising "£240 million being invested into accommodation" when tuition fees are so high and the teaching standards seem to be slacking massively in some areas.
It is very easy to feel at home in Liverpool and everyone is very friendly. The city is amazing! The main downside is in 2nd year a large number of international students join your course. During 1st year there were only 80 people in my year which was almost perfect, in 2nd and 3rd year this went up to 280 students!!! Unfortunately with very little increase in tutor/ student ratios for tutorials. This meant that when results became important we had much less contact time.... Another gripe would be some of the lecturers. Many are brilliant, very knowledgeable and easy to approach with questions. However there are too many who read word for word off power points, some of which are not even their own work. One lecturer spent the majority of the semester off loading their job onto postgrad students. We ended up with a semester of disjointed notes and powerpoint slides which flicked between a whole host of subjects, none of which went into sufficient detail to make them of any use.
Liverpool was not originally my top choice....but i can honestly say I could not be happier to live and study here! As soon as a spent my first night here i felt right at home. The guild is so welcoming and you feel part of the uni the moment you enter. The city is full of quirky hope, cafes and bars there is always something interesting happening. The campus is beautiful with state if the art architecture and large open spaces to hang out with friends and enjoy a sociable lunch. The University of Liverpool is not given enough credit as a University. The IT computer services are user friendly which makes assignments more manageable. I love exploring during my day and finding hideaway places on campus to relax, get on with work or watch the busy student life pass by.
The University of Liverpool is a great university for academic research and also for boosting one's employability and relevance to the global market. It has a world leading law faculty paired with an award-winning law clinic which gives its students unparalleled exposure to law in practice.
The uni has been great for societies which you can get easily involved in whether they be sports, musical, cultural, arts etc. The libraries are huge and have all the resources you need to do all of your studying. The guild is brand new and has a club, shop, Starbucks, restaurant and a huge concert hall! Support is so easy to come by here from the staff so your never alone! Liverpool uni is definitely a place which is friendly, sociable and very supportive!
I wouldn't recommend this university to anyone. As a mature and disabled student I have had to bring an official complaint against Liverpool with regard to discrimination. They do not cater for mature or disabled students very well and do not recognise that these types of student have other responsibilities outside of the university environment. Those living on campus or of the 18 to 22 age range are the main focus of the university. A distinct lack of communication, disorganised administration, they cannot even comply with their own charter, let alone the Equality Act 2010.
Really love Uni of Liverpool, it's a really good experience, the only thing is they need to update some of their buildings as where i had lectures last year some of the rooms were horribly old fashioned, and they need better wifi throughout every building, as I struggled to get wifi in some buildings which meant i couldn't access the internet to perform tasks in seminars etc
I love my University so much and I don't understand other students that rate it so low! We have such amazing facilities and every time I have ever rang student support they are so helpful and friendly! Absolutely can't fault them with anything!
Views of Liverpool from a non-scouser
The city is the most vibrant and exciting place away from London. The clubs and societies are fantastic and well worth joining, they took use the city to their advantage during socials.
I do feel that £9,000 is a big ask and cannot always see the benefit, for example my course does not even have its own building and we are sent hiking round the campus for different lectures.
great uni wouldn't have gone anywhere else
Great nightlife, has to be said. Probably the best, i prefer it to newcastle! Great librarys loads of resources. Tutors are really helpful. Everything really
Cant think of any.. Tuition fees? But thats not just liverpool
