Naomis Story

Student Profile(s)


Naomi studied for a degree in Contemporary Art History at the Manchester School of Art before coming to LMU to take her Masters in Cities, Culture and Creativity.

"What attracted me to the course initially was the combination of a really interesting subject and the great professional skills offered by the course. I have really enjoyed the programme content but what has really stood out for me has been the opportunity to meet so many professionals in the field. John Moores has certainly opened doors for me that just wouldn’t have been possible before.

The tutors on the course are amazing. They are always there when you need them, they are really open and honest with you and they are also lovely people. I would certainly advise anyone considering postgraduate study at LMU to go for it. It is a great university in a great city. There are so many experts here, so much knowledge and so much talent.

In terms of the city itself, it is a really vibrant place. You could never get bored here. I love the independent restaurants on Bold Street and galleries such as the Tate and Bluecoat are amazing.

Postgraduate study has certainly been hard in terms of the level of study and the amount of work involved but it has also been really great fun."
