Phoebe's story

Having graduated in Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice, scholarship student Phoebe decided to take the next step and study for a Masters in Criminal Justice at LJMU.

"I love living in Liverpool so staying at LJMU was an easy decision. Although I probably underestimated the requirements of postgraduate study, once I got my head around the independent study and increased amount of reading, everything was fine.

The lecturers themselves have been the highlight of my studies here. They have taught me an endless amount. They help you to settle into your studies, build good relationships with you and really develop your skills. They are just brilliant people.

I am dyslexic and have had help right from the start. I have been given support with proof reading and note taking and I have even been offered deadline extensions although I have tried to be good and not take these.

For anyone considering coming to LJMU to study at postgraduate level I would definitely say do it! I can't recommend it enough. The support on offer is brilliant, there are so many opportunities and so many things you can do to prepare for a variety of roles in later life. It is a very rounded experience and, if you are worried about the cost, take a look at scholarships and other funding options."
