      Nightlife

      The nightlife is the best that I've ever seen. It beats Malia, Leeds, Newcastle and probably loads others.In Liverpool, there is an area called 'Concert Square' which is a square which contains hundreds of shisha pipes and 5 bars around the outside of it. This is the centre of the nightlife on most nights as this then branches off into the bigger clubs down the streets adjacent to it. The go to night out if you have no plans are... 1. Predrink at Uni (it's cheaper)2. Get a taxi to Faculty (~5) and then get a 'WKD QUADVOD'. This is 4 shots mixed with WKD. It is guaranteed to get you going.3. Go to: (a) Baa Bar - it's free but drinks are very  (b) Juicy (on Thursdays) with 3 entry. (c) Medication (on Friday) as it's the biggest night of the week, (d) Level (on Wednesday) as Level Wednesday is something that needs to be witnessed (e) The Raz (on Monday) as EVERYONE LOVES RAZ.But honestly, you can go anywhere in Liverpool and it'll be a really good night.(p.s Cava is a wonderful place - 1 tequila shots is 100% sure to turn any guy/girl into a 10/10!)

      Academic Experience

      We might not have a lot of contact hours on our BA courses, but it is expected that you have a lot of self study hours, because of the amount of information that we have to learn is quite intense, but works out as an equal workload in comparison to more science orientated students.I love my english and communications and media course, because it is a mixture of the past and the present a great compare and contrast of the most fundamental issues - like economic, political and social problems.We usually do essays and exams, occasionally some group work and I have done one presentation. The essays vary in formats, but I would like it to be more diverse.Feedback from tutors are often right and quite direct, but it would help if they gave us more specific directions as to things we should look out for or avoid.We don't have any course specific facilities.

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.
