Hi there,

So there is a huge amount of information here on the course e.g. modules, entry requirements and more: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/po...-msc/overview/

I won't repeat too much that is on this page but I thought I would just highlight a couple of key points to address your question, so the course will give you grounding in modern finance and economics with a particular emphasis on techniques and models and their application to real-world problems. There is a focus both on academic skills as well as the 'softer' skills expected in employment e.g. communication, creative thinking etc. and the course is accredited by the CFA Insititute. The Business School has great links with a number of public and private organisation, and regularly has guest speakers as part of the course, as well as opportunities to be involved in event outside of your formal course e.g. Business Breakfasts.

The University is located in the city-center of the Liverpool, and it has a huge amount of facilities including 2 libraries, sports centre, the guild of students (with cafes/shops/bars) and many private and Univerisitez provided accommodation on-site.

Hopefully, this is helpful, but if you would like to know anything more specific then please let me know.

Thank you for replying. I would also like to know about the placements like how many students get placed. As an International student I would also like to know about the cost of living, accommodation (campus accommodations or should I go for external accommodations), part time jobs available

Hi there,

I think the best thing for you to do would be to send an e-mail to [email protected] (as stated on the website Malachy posted ) and ask about how many students get placed on placements, as they'll be able to give you an accurate number!

In terms of cost of living, Liverpool is very affordable compared to the 'bigger' cities like London. As Liverpool is a student city, it's very affordable and there are always offers/deals around the city.

In terms of accomodation > https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/po...accommodation/ > I'd like to direct you to this website where it'll explain the possibilities of accommodation the University offers. The accomodation that the University recommends mainly for postgrad would be Philharmonic Court. But, like I said, take a quick look at that link and see if any catch your eye!

In terms of part time jobs, there are definitely a lot available! Like I said, Liverpool is a student city so there are many student jobs (e.g. retail, bar work, jobs within the Uni etc). There are many jobs available on campus which are advertised on the University's careers platform 'Handshake', which everyone has access to once you enrol. It's a great resource for students to have!

Hopefully that's helpful and has answered some of your questions
