I'm just finishing first year psychology and I really like it
The lecturers are really good, and the seminars are interesting. I like the way they assess as well, as there are no formal exams at the end of the year, just lots of little exams and assignments during the year.
If you want to ask anything PM me
Hi, I saw your latest msg that you got 2:1. Wow!
Did you attend Liverpool Hope Uni? Could you give me some advice? are the lecturers/tutors helpful? Are the materials sufficient? Do you need to buy the books or able to get the materials from the library in the Uni? I mean I read alot of negative reviews and quite concerned. Am thinking of enrolling. heard abt the strike and reduction of lecturers/tutors. am afraid of the standard etc. appreciate any of your advice on the course in this Uni. Thanks!
First of all, the reduction in lecturers was last year, and things have stabilised a lot now that they've had time to adapt to the lower staff numbers.
I always bought the books that I needed because the library is quite small, but there are certain books that you're not allowed to actually take out and can only read while you're in there- so there is usually a copy available to hand if you need one.
My dissertation tutor was fantastic, and there are a lot of others who are great as well. If you look at a lot of other unis you'll find negative reviews as well, and people who have negative experiences are more likely to post reviews in the first place (as you'll learn if you're doing Psychology)!
With regards to the night life, if you don't mind paying £30 in a taxi to get into Liverpool then you'll be fine. I don't know what the new SU is going to be like, but the old one wasn't all that great. I can't really comment on that though as obviously I've never seen it.
The campus is lovely, and the advantage of only having a small number of students is that your tutors know you by name not just by number. I liked that, others didn't, but that's entirely personal preference.
If you're living in halls on campus then they're perfect as they're literally a 30 second walk from the lecture theatre. The other halls off campus are about a 20 minute bus ride away, but the bus is free so that's not too bad.
EDIT: Just seen you're living in Aigburth halls. I can't comment on the bathroom because that will depend on who you're living with. If you have good housemates then it will be fine, but there is a chance they won't be clean. I'm not too sure on this, but I think you get cleaners for your bathroom so if it does get messy it should only be until the next morning when the cleaners come in.
Hope that helps a little bit!
