What their Students Say
“There are many good things about the university to talk about. The best one for me is that the university is constantly working towards its betterment in every possible way.
The university actively collects feedback, conducts surveys etc. LJMU then explores this feedback constructively, which is a motivational and great aspect of the university.
Also, there are many beautiful campuses with more than the required facilities and all for them have a friendly working and study environment.
The university really does provide support for all students. The professors and lecturers are always ready
to offer their help with academic related queries, and they helped to clear any doubts in my mind via
email or in person.”
“My lecturers are very approachable, exemplarily dedicated and provide me with regular and helpful feedback and advice, be it for studies or placements.
The university community at large including the librarians, IT support, careers, and student well-being team, as well as the cafeteria staff and security guards, have likewise been friendly and helpful in so many different ways.
Everyone is treated with equal respect and is made to feel included here, whilst we celebrate our diversity. At LJMU, you just feel this sense that they are all rooting for you and want you to succeed!
