This topic could be an interesting one but you are bombarded with information and it is not formed correctly. There is very little help to guide you through the difficult material and it is not always easy to find the course content. The exam was a mystery until the day itself and I believe it was made a lot more difficult than it needed to be.

I'm an international student from Mexico, currently on my second year. So far I have really enjoyed my course, although it's not simple. Engineering will never be easy I guess, but that's what makes it interesting and well remunerated at the end.

Most of the modules are assessed by final exams, which I think is good because you don't have loads of assignments all the time and you get the chance to manage your time and your private study as you want. It takes some effort to manage it at the beginning though. The few assignments I have are online tests so I'm allowed to take my time and go through my notes.

About the lectures and the professors, everything is well organised and prepared for the whole year. The professors are always happy to help and provide feedback.

The structure of the course is simple. I usually have 6 modules per semester, 2 or 3 are replaced in the second semester of each year. Normally I have 3 final exams per semester, which is not bad. And at the end of the year, an engineering project has to be presented. I consider it the most interesting part of my course as you get to work in the labs on a real life engineering project. You start from designing a device and developing to achieve certain tasks. The staff are always there to assist you too.

The campus is amazing, it is huge and you can find everything around. From a shop to a bank branch. Loads of social events happen every week, from sports to gigs and the students' atmosphere is always buzzing. Not everything is work and stress at the university. The social life is an important aspect of the student life and the university encourage everyone to get involved. There is always one society, at least, that can interest you and it's a great way to meet new friends.

The content is a huge amount, which is to be expected for a degree of this nature, however it can be a bit ovewhelming at times. The structure is well layed out in order to help you as best as possible, eg lectures are sectioned into body system blocks.

An interesting course with good structure. First year was quite general, without much opportunity to specialise. Second year courses are more interesting and subject specific, although some bad organisation on the university's side in terms of modules. There's also the opportunity for study abroad which is a great experience.

I started off doing business economics first year but swapped onto international business in my second year. Swapping onto international busines was one of the best decisions I ever made regarding university. It can be quite complex and a lot of reading and formulas to remember. Most of the exams at a combination of multiple choice and essay based with a 30% midterm exam in November. One thing I don't enjoy is the lectures they're usually not very interactive and comprise of a lecturer speaking for 2 hours

The main reason why I chose to study BA Accounting & Finance was because it provides many exemptions from professional examinations. The programme is a well-structured mixture of accounting, finance, economics and maths which all enhance my knowledge and employability skills.The course is mainly taught through lectures and weekly seminars. The assessment is a combination of coursework and examinations.

The module is well taught and the professors are very friendly. One can always approach them for help.

Liverpool is also a fun and friendly city with a lovely night life.

Although the content of the Philosophy course is good, the English side is very limited to literature topics until final year. Being in both subjects leaves you feeling like you have no 'home' so to speak, and are lost on who can help you. There is little help for joint honours students. Managing two topics is very hard as adapting your writing style to suit both topics is difficult. However the help online of lectures and notes is good.

The course gives one a balance between busines/ career orientated study and the interesting study of history. it allows the student to meet an interect with different groups of people who are to be found in the different subjects. furthermore the degree equips students with a range of skills to be found in the two disiciplines, with history being far more academically orientated and clearly less skills orientated contrasting the study of business.
