Whether you’re an undergraduate or a post-graduate looking to enrol on a master’s degree, where you choose to study can have a huge impact on your experience.
From cities and towns to suburbs and the countryside, universities are located in a variety of environments, and each offers a totally different experience. When choosing a uni, you need to ask yourself whether you want to stay close to home or experience student life to the full and move further afield.
Although we may be biased here at Caro Lettings, Liverpool is one of the best places to be a student – with plenty to see and do.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes this city the perfect place to study.
8 reasons why you should study in Liverpool
- Friendly people
Liverpool has been welcoming people from all walks of life for centuries, and Liverpudlians are well-known for their easy-going attitude. Famous for the Scouse accent, spend enough time in the city and you’ll be picking up the slang in no time.
- Lively nightlife
Nights out on the town are part and parcel of going to university. Whether you want to party until the early hours with your mates or enjoy some fancy food and drinks at Baltic Market, there is something for everyone in Liverpool. Plus, most student bars are within walking distance of each other, and only a stone’s throw away from our student accommodation!
- Fantastic culture
Liverpool was hailed the Capital of Culture in 2008, and it’s with good reason. Home to more galleries and museums than any other city outside of London, the city’s arts scene is thriving. You can enjoy live music from popular musicians and up-and-coming artists, and you’ll never get tired of looking at the Tate Liverpool or two Cathedrals.
- Musical heritage
Are you a music lover? Renowned for its rich musical background, the city regularly hosts music events and concerts – including Liverpool Sound City, Liverpool International Music Festival, and Fusion Festival, to name just a few. As we’re sure you’re aware already, Liverpool is the birthplace of The Beatles, and the Cavern Club remains the beating heart of the city’s iconic music scene.
- Fascinating history
Ranging from the stunning waterfront (a UNESCO World Heritage site) to the Royal Liver Building and bombed-out church, Liverpool has its fair share of historic landmarks to visit in your free time. For the ultimate sightseeing experience, you can hop on the Mersey Ferry and learn about the history of the River Mersey from the deck.
- Delicious food
Don’t get us wrong, going to university is all about studying for a degree, but you also need to make sure that you eat well. Whilst you could rustle up something tasty at your student accommodation in Liverpool, there are plenty of eateries in and around the city centre with a wide range of food styles and cuisines on the menu. And the best bit? Many of these offer student discounts!
- World-class football
Liverpool is home to two major rivals in the Premier League, Liverpool FC and Everton FC. If you’re a football fan, it’s well worth attending at least one match at either Anfield or Goodison Park (depending on whether you support the reds or the blues!). Of course, if your budget won’t stretch that far, you can bet you’ll find a local pub with live sport on their large TV screens!
- Affordable student living
One thing you’ll find in Liverpool is that rent is a lot cheaper than it is in other areas in the UK, including places like London, for instance. Food and drink are also inexpensive and most attractions are within close proximity, so no need to splash out on transport!
