Ambassador for Switzerland

I really enjoy that this University is designed for everyone but can be shaped by you. I find the selection of modules highly stimulating, not only the compulsory classes but also optional modules. I was very excited to be able to choose from subjects I have a genuine interest in but also something new I didn't originally think to study that I know will be beneficial for my future.

I really enjoy attending lectures as all my professors are not only good teachers but they are also very passionate about their subjects which is extremely motivating and makes classes more interesting. Not only is the University is highly regarded, it gives you an excellent balanced education.

Liverpool is an outstanding place to live, it is especially amazing for students. lt is rich in history and exciting tourist attractions such as beautiful churches, grand parks and of course Beatles memorabilia. From lovely museums to legendary pubs there's something here for everyone. Moreover, everything you need is very close in Liverpool, whether you need to do a last minute food shop or get IT support. If you live in university accommodations all the attractions and city centre are only a ten minute walk, or really short bus ride away.

In my free time I love doing sports and seeing new places. I joined the paddling society which made me super excited because it gave me a chance to continue something I loved doing at home with my family. It will help me make sure I stay fit and lead a balanced life and it allowed me to meet new friends with whom I bonded on the beautiful waters of Liverpool. I am also passionate about seeing new places and Liverpool is perfect for this as it offers a wide variety of beautiful old buildings as well as a modern city centre. Taking the train is super easy here too and this has allowed me to visit neighbouring towns and I hope to travel further out to see more of the big destinations such as London and Manchester, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

Leonora's top tips

  1. Make a realistic list of what you need to bring (many things are easy to get here so you only need to pack the very essential and very unique items to you - especially if you have limited weight in your suitcase)
  2. Find out the first independent steps you need to take in England before you get here especially if you are arriving quite early
  3. Familiarise yourself with your surroundings and must-know places for students
  4. Be open to getting to know new people everywhere - people make a place a home so good friends are a must.
