Gina's story

With a BA and an MA in Philosophy from the University of Leeds, Gina came to LJMU to study for an MA in Fine Art.

I came here on the recommendation of a friend already studying on the course. I was attracted by the discursive nature of the programme and its links with external facilities and institutions in Liverpool.

The course has a real feeling of community and a sense of collaboration. It has really exceeded my expectations in terms of the opportunities I have been given.

Our tutors are very hands on and provide great academic feedback but there is so much more on offer too. The library staff are excellent and there’s a lot of holistic, wellbeing support.

The student population is very much integrated into the local community in Liverpool and I think that’s why so many former students stay here. It is a super-friendly, value for money city with lots going on. And although it may be known for its industrial heritage, Liverpool offers easy access to beaches and green spaces so there’s plenty of natural beauty too.”
