The lecturers are exceptional, giving interesting and in-depth presentations that mix humour and academic learning. Seminar tutors are friendly and approachable, each has a unique style of teaching but all know the subjects in-depth. Ormskirk is a small but nice town with a range of night life and a small selection of shops with Liverpool merely half an hour away by train. The newer accommodation is exceptional with large rooms and kitchen space. The Hub is the main building in which food is served, the food is of good quality and the range is extremely wide, the other food outlets include cafe's around campus and the diner, all sell good food.×

There is a much more friendly approach to the course, with teachers helping you as a friend rather than as a student. The staff and people who work on campus are all friendly and will try their best to help no matter the question or problem. The layout of the University is brilliant and allows for a clear understanding of where things are; every is signposted clearly and it's hard to get lost. As somewhere full of students, the campus is surprisingly calm and peaceful, and you can wander around when you're feeling down/stressed/lonely in a place that allows calming thought and planning for tasks. The library stocks all the books you will need on your course and even more for wider reading, and, for film courses or just relaxation, the amount of DVDs that they stock is very good. There are two shops, a laundrette and a swimming pool on campus, as well as other sports facilities - such as a gym and football pitch - that are great excuses to keep fit and exercise, as well as to stop boredom creeping in on those long weekends.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
