PhD Software Engineering student Luke Okelo from Nairobi, Kenya
I wanted to live in a different city to broaden my experiences of British culture and decided to apply to Liverpool John Moores University because the Computing and Mathematical Sciences department ranked highly. The first few months of my studies allowed me to develop my social life, and adapt to the culture. There was a lot to look forward to and it was very easy for me to settle into my new home and show my friends around Liverpool.
The teaching staff at LJMU are extremely helpful. You can approach them and ask questions, but they also approach you and really make you feel that you are involved. There is plenty of support and the Library opening hours are very convenient.
Liverpool is a very hospitable place, I can leave here feeling that I have achieved more than an academic qualification. In the future I hope to go back home, continue my research, and work within Industry.
I would say to students to definitely come here. At LJMU you get value for money and a valuable experience. Liverpool and LJMU has a lot to offer. There is lots to keep you busy and entertained, as well as excellent facilities to do well in your studies.
