Fabian Beckmann

The University of Liverpool is a place where you can be who you are and be accepted. It feels like I am part of something bigger, there’s a real sense of community. There is a huge offer of sports clubs and societies which I love as I’m passionate about sports, I joined the volleyball and football teams.
