I was so surprised by my time in Liverpool! I wasn’t expecting such a culturally vibrant and exciting city! I’m a theatre nut, so having the Everyman on my doorstep was an incredible opportunity to learn and expand my horizons. The scousers are also incredibly warm and friendly, and between the vast numbers of students and locals you’ll make loads of new friends. The course was hugely enjoyable, with varied and dynamic lecturers who are constantly pushing you academically, and the SU helps students out in a myriad of ways.
Just be warned that if you study law, you will have to take your own initiative to research firms/chambers, apply for open days and gain exposure to firms/chambers, because the University massively lacks on this. Also there isn't any support for learning how to research graduate roles, and the mock interviews by the careers service are not very helpful. BUT I'd recommend seeking out people like Rob Stokes, as he is a jewel to Liverpool University and is so willing to help and support students in pursuit of legal careers.
In my opinion, now that the University requires AAA (it was ABB in 2017), I would recommend going somewhere like Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, as they require the same A Levels and also have great social/nightlife, but will probably provide you with far better academic and employability support (from speaking to friends at these Universities). Liverpool was a good university experience, but I just honestly don't feel like the Law School really care if you get a job.
Great location, teaching, facilities. The city is perfect for students! The only bugbear I have is the price of the accommodation but private housing is relatively cheap so you do make a saving in 2nd, 3rd year etc.
