Student Profile From Mexico
Marco Garces, the former Mexico International Footballer, is currently studying The Natural Sciences Foundation Programme
I played professional football in Mexico for twelve years and had heard of Liverpool because of the world famous football team. I chose Liverpool John Moores University because a lot of research that I had read on sports science had come from LJMU, so for me to be here now is really a dream come true.
Natural Sciences Foundation programme, which is very interesting and challenging. I can tell that the professors really love teaching as they are easy to understand and very helpful.
I brought my wife and child with me to Liverpool and the Family support Officer; Hamida Melaine, was a great help with setting up everything. She helped me find a house where my family could be happy and comfortable.
Liverpool is a very interesting and stimulating city. Obviously I love the football environment, and the professors and students have excellent ideas so you are constantly learning. The Libraries are fantastic and the facilities really are amazing.
