OK - lots of online courses. I'd expect a face to face with a professor and I think you get that at most unis.

Studying at University of Liverpool

Based just five minutes walk away from Liverpool City Centre is the University of Liverpool. It consists of three faculties; Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Engineering and Health and Life Sciences, and was listed as 28th in the Times Good University Guide in 2011. The majority of studies and student life is carried out on its main campus with the exception of veterinary science which is carried out on the Leahurst campus and is globally recognised as an animal medicine centre of expertise. Both sites have undergone significant investment in development and modernisation in recent years. There are more than 400 programmes available to more than 27,000 students that include representatives from more than 100 countries.

The University of Liverpool is in the top 24 research-led universities in the UK and is well known for its pioneering work. Since its foundation in 1881 there has been nine winners of the Nobel Prize at the University of Liverpool, including work with malaria by Sir Ronald Ross in 1908, Professor Charles Barkla’s discovery of the properties of X-rays in 1917, and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 1995, Professor Joseph Rotblat for his work with nuclear disarmament.

Whatever your interests there is a club, society or team here to help you explore them further. Students that take part in other activities outside of their degree can gain many skills to be added to their CV and will enhance their prospects of employment after graduation. Courses and societies are available in everything from art, music and languages to learning leadership skills, and computing. Also available to many students is the opportunity to take part in volunteering, work placements and overseas study.



Teaching at the university is often delivered by internationally renowned staff and makes use of the various on-campus facilities including two libraries and The Active Learning Laboratory, a new £35m development that helps students to gain 'industry ready' skills directly linking to one of the universities aims of helping students to graduate as employable individuals.

The Guild of Students is the hub of social life at the university. Within the building students can access the Athletics Union, meeting rooms, bars, cafés plus live music, comedy and theatre in one of its four main venues. Sporting life here is also very active and many of the teams under Sport Liverpool are at a premier level. Opportunities are available for all levels of sporting ability and sports include men and women's football, Rugby Union, Hockey, Netball and Basketball.

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 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!

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.

Cons?
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.

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.

The ratings do not include faculty/teaching/student support - if there is anything less than a one-star I would select it.

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.

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
