    My firm choice for uni is Liverpool and just want to know what living there as a student is like. Anything I should be aware of apart from the bronze tans of the body builders? Pro's and Cons.

    For the record, there is little distinction between my not-so constructive joke and how many "liverpoolians" actually communicate.

    I love it! The nightlife is great, shopping is amazing, there's so much to do and there's always something for everyone It's also cheap to live there which is always a bonus, people are friendly etc. Ignore all the crap about it being dangerous, obviously there are bad areas (which is the case with so many places!) but I've not once felt unsafe and I've enjoyed my time so much so far

    Liverpool John Moores was my insurance choice. I didn't get the grades I needed for my firm so I came to Liverpool, and I can honestly say that I love it. I'm even considering sticking around after uni.

    The good thing about Liverpool is that it is a big enough city that you have everything you could want on your doorstep, but it is spread out enough that it doesn't feel intimidating and anonymous like big cities such as London and Manchester can at times. There are good shops in the city centre, plenty of places for delicious cake (I'm more of a cake girl than an alcohol girl), and there is a very good night-life as well.

    The downside that I found when I first moved here was the accent, but you get used to that quite quickly. Also, I did get family members telling me that all of my stuff would get nicked and things like that, but that's more stereotypes than anything else. Hope that's helped a little

    I've lived here since I was born, and I love it. Yes, some people aren't exactly the most friendly, but that's the case everywhere across the world. Bad stereotypes made from lies just make us seem like worse people.

    Anyway, the city centre (where I go out most often) is amazing. There's so much to do, and there's nearly always some kind of event going on. The amount of shops squeezed into that area is just staggering as well. I can't say too much about the nightlife or university, considering I'm only 15, but I'm sure they're good if other people say they are.
