Given my background and limited academic resources available in my previous studies, the vast resources provided by the University increases my enthusiasm to learn and achieve more. I love my course and the way it is delivered, it is helping to shape my perception of businesses and the way they operate, not just theoretically but in the practical sense.
Furthermore, the diversity of the students in class, the group work, the interactive lectures, the amazing online and physical library and the willingness of all the staff to help are all reasons to further fall in love with this University.
Living in the city of Liverpool has been more exciting than I thought it was going to be. I love the atmosphere- it is quiet but also lively. I like how nice and warm the people are - you can have a conversation with just about anyone. In my free time I enjoy travelling to other cities, countries, watching movies with friends, taking road trips with friends, dancing and walking
Olayinka's top tips
- Attend the welcome week organised by the University consisting of all the necessary registrations, events, security tips, physical and mental well-being tips, library services and all the relevant information you need to help you settle in. To attend the welcome week events ensure you arrive at university early enough, the start date of the welcome week will be communicated to you
- Make arrangements for accommodation: The University offers great accommodation choices to students on campus which you can choose from before arriving. Also, there are a lot of options available outside campus accommodation. If you are interested in an accommodation off campus, I suggest you visit this site: liverpoolstudenthomes.org
- Be interactive and ask questions: The university has qualified people to answer all your questions from money issues, to immigration, to academic related issues, to accommodation, to mental health, careers and social activities. Therefore, I suggest that no questions are dumb
- Registration and documents: the university will send a series of information about online registrations you need to do before coming to the campus, ensure you do them so you arrive on campus with all necessary documents- International passport, academic certificates and all supporting documents.
