Great place, with so many friendly people! There's loads to do, no matter what you’re into – you can hike in the Lake District or go down to the lovely beach in Sefton, or party in Liverpool or Manchester, all of which is less than half an hour away on trains or via cheap taxis. Ormskirk is a little small, but that’s the only problem! The teachers are incredibly supportive and friendly, and you'll have access to loads of helpful resources on your course.
