Study with us

Our team is at the forefront of research into ageing and chronic disease. That makes the Institute an inspirational place for undergraduates and postgraduates, at whatever stage you are at in your career.

Studying with us doesn’t end in the lecture theatre. Working with our international partners, and our dynamic interaction with industry, you’ll be learning at the bedside and in the laboratory, with the support of student mentors and our dedicated staff.

The facilities and equipment in the new William Henry Duncan Building are some of the best available. And you’ll be in good company too – it houses 200 researchers, involved in a vast array of medical and scientific specialisms, as well as the Liverpool Bio-Innovation Hub Biobank and a host of innovative biomedical start-up companies and collaborations. We also have a fascinating seminar series, where you can learn from world-class experts.

The research opportunities are endless - The University of Liverpool is a member of The Russell Group of 24 UK research-led universities and is ranked in the top 1% of higher education institutions worldwide.

The William Henry Duncan Building is home to the MRC-Arthritis Research UK Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) – a collaboration between researchers and clinicians at the Universities of Liverpool, Sheffield and Newcastle. CIMA is understanding why bone, joints and muscles function less well as we age, and why older people develop clinical diseases of these musculoskeletal tissues, such as arthritis or osteoporosis. 

The Institute holds an Athena Swan silver award and there are family-friendly study options, like full and part time PhD programmes. We deliver one-year Master of Research and PhD programmes, and teaching across undergraduate courses, in the faculty and beyond.

Liverpool itself is an amazing place to study, live and work - vibrant, friendly and packed with culture, entertainment, sport and shopping. Read our city pages to find out more.
