Student Reviews

Although my course was taught online it was a wonderful new experience for me. At 60 years of age I found myself challenged in reading and understanding new course and education matter, this after being a Veterinary Surgeon for 34 years. Learning about Bu
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I loved the manner in which the program was laid out and educated. My online interaction with the my colleagues was exhilarating and challenging. On the downside there was limited interaction with the course tutor.

Online learning the way to go
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Generally, online studies are tough, especially one has a normal day job. However, the structure of modules at the University of Liverpool made it possible for me to wither through the hurdles of virtual/long-distance learning.

Good Facilities, Not So Good People
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Facilities are great, the student support staff is good, a very small part of lecturers are good and know what they are doing, most of them just don't really care, the labs for undergraduate engineering degrees are terrible and the students are as snobbish as they come.
