      Academic Experience

      I study Architecture. There is a huge amount of work involved. More than any other course that i have come across. Teaching style is pretty good, with a personal tutor and groups provided. However every personal tutor gives very different advice, and have different expectation of work, which is confusing. Most of the content has been very relevant and interesting. Most of the work is practical design work including hand drawings, modelling and computer work. There is a few essays, and examinations. Feedback is well presented and informative. Regularly available. Most of the facilities are good. Could do with some renovations, more computers, and air conditioning and heaters in the main studio space.

      Accommodation

      I stayed at Melville Grove which is an on campus hall traditionally associated with post-grads and foreign UK students (something actively advertised by the university). I wouldn't let this influence your decision too much. My housemates were all UK students, and even for the hall as a whole saw minimal post grads. Though we didn't have our own bar (like off campus halls) - we were 5 minutes walk from the town centre with all the bars you could want, and only 2 minutes from uni (no bus pass, lie-ins etc....). I would recommend going for the cheaper accommodation - don't become transfixed on having an en-suite! This is not a luxury you will get in private housing later, and the extra rental costs of having one are extreme!

      Nightlife

      Liverpool has a great night life! The are plenty of bars if all you're after is a classy drink, Hannah's Bar is a good shout for that. But if you want a real night out the clubs range from the usual (Pop World is a favourite everywhere) to the 'only in Liverpool' places: Medication and Black Rabbit are personal favourites and I enjoy Arma De Cuba if I want something between a bar and a club. Nights can be cheap and the more expensive places aren't necessarily better in Liverpool, for example, Medication is a vey budget night and it never disappoints. However there's a great music scene in Liverpool which always offers a good night. The Cavern is STILL a brilliant place for live music, as is Leaf on Bold Street who regularly offer open mic nights and comedy nights that are not to be missed if you want a more chilled, slightly more sober night.

    • The downside

      The student union/guild is not used very often and isn't very good ( eg, organising nights out)

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.
