Thomas' story

In the last year of his History degree at Bath Spa University Tom developed an interest in property which led him to a Masters in Commercial Building Surveying at LJMU.

After my undergraduate degree I got some experience working with building surveyors and decided it was an area I wanted to move into. John Moores has a great reputation for built environment courses so I decided to study here.

I knew I would be fine with the journal and report writing side of things but realised that the technical support would be key. The lecturers have been great. They are all very keen on their subject areas which makes lectures really enjoyable. There is also a lot of variety in the course and, of course, it has great links with industry.

The support on offer at LJMU is excellent, not only in terms of the subject staff, but also the library staff who have been invaluable in terms of accessing online resources.

Working alongside my studies has enabled me to put my learning into practice on a daily basis. It has been a challenging experience but very rewarding. In terms of Masters study, so long as you do your preparation in advance and work hard throughout your course you’ll certainly be able to do it.
