    The best experience while studying at the University of Liverpool online was studying with people all over the world. Just studying for the master's at the University of Liverpool opened new opportunities for my career.

    Samuel Bitariho, Burundi

    The University of Liverpool is one of the best and most recognised institutions in the World. To study online at the University of Liverpool gave me socially a positive consideration in my organisation but also in my country. My best experience while studying my course was the way they welcome people, the good work environment, students’ and lecturers’ interaction. Apart from the knowledge I got during my course, after getting my master's degree, many things have changed in my career especially in terms of job position, responsibilities and promotion.

    Jasbir Virdi, Canada

    I did my studying online. However, I made some great contacts with both students and professors from all over the world who are still in contact. This happened during classroom discussions and group assignments. The master's degree has given me extra confidence to excel in my career.
