I guess one day you will get a job and stop sponging off whoever is funding your wide and varied education.

No, not really... I'd agree that there is certainly little interaction with actual University of Liverpool staff members during the course itself, as most of the tutors are employed by Laureate (although this has since changed, or at least is changing; I saw job adverts for tutors for this course last year who were to be employed specifically by the University itself). But, it is the University that sets the syllabus, the marking and grade criteria, the dissertation format, etc. It's basically a University of Liverpool-designed course, run by Laureate.
I don't know much about the University of Roehampton, in fact I'd never heard of it. But their MPH isn't accredited. The fact that Laureate also partners with them is no reflection on other Laureate-partnered courses. Remember Laureate is just a vehicle to help run an online course, it is the University who has the responsibility to make it high standard, and to gain accreditation. Laureate just get paid to deliver what the University tells them to.
Good university + Laureate = good online degree.
Crap university + Laureate = crap online degree.

DO NOT TOUCH THESE COURSES! They are a complete rip-off! You pay more than an on-campus student and don't get access to ANY of the student support services including the careers service. None of this is outlined to you when they are calling you every hour with the hard sell. Their 'consultants' are useless and will tell you anything to get you to sign up (I was told I could access the careers service by the consultant and when I contacted the careers service they informed me that they are not contracted to deliver a service to Laureate students and referred me to the awful Laureate Online Careers Service, google it, you'll be amazed at how rubbish it is.
Now try to complain about the lies you have been told about the course and you might as well talk to the wall. Once they have your money you're at their mercy and they will just constantly fob you off.
