Liverpool's a great city and JMU undercuts BPP's Merseyside offering by £1,800, but before you dive into the 'pool, it's worth noting that JMU's LPC is heavily slanted towards high-street subjects rather than commercial courses. We have heard from graduates who've gone on to work at big national firms, but most stay local and we aren't sure what percentage go to the City. The university's sandwiched between the knowledge quarter, which is full of tech companies and educational institutes, and Liverpool city centre with its drinking, dining and shopping delights.
