Lois Roberts

I did my Undergraduate degree in History at the University of Liverpool and I just naturally decided to continue my studies here because I love living in Liverpool and I am very familiar with the University campus. The vast opportunities that the University offers is what attracted me to study here in the first place, which I feel I have truly taken advantage of, academically and through extra curricular activities.
