Work with us

Work With Us

The School of the Arts collaborates with educational institutions, private, public and third sector organisations on research, advisory and teaching initiatives across the UK and internationally.

External Engagement

We engage in collaborative research, consultancy and Continuing Professional Development programmes with a range of external partners, and our academics also offer expert opinion and advice to government and media organisations. You can find examples of these collaborations here.


We run a variety of sessions and events for schools which complement the curriculum and help students and teachers get a better understanding of our subjects.

Widening Participation

Through the University’s Widening Participation programme we help talented school pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, and adults with no formal qualifications, access our degree programmes. See the Widening Participation website for more details.

Visiting Scholars

We welcome enquires from international researchers who are interested in working with us for a fixed period of time as visiting academic visitors. For more information and how to apply please visit the Visiting Scholars page.

Offer Your Support

We recognise that our main strength is the people we are associated with, and would welcome your help in a number of ways:

Open and Discovery Days

Alumni, students and employers: your experience and knowledge are exactly what our visitors want to hear about. Open and Discovery Days usually fall on Saturdays, and we would welcome just a couple of hours’ support in the afternoon from alumni and employers, and up to a full day of help from current students.

For more information, please contact

Make Social Connections

Alumni, students and employers - promote work opportunities and offer useful advice via the University of Liverpool Careers Twitter account @livunicareers 

You can also keep in touch via the School of the Arts social media channels:



Offer an Internship or Work Placement

The School of the Arts has an undergraduate module in which students undertake 48 hours on placement. We have a strong portfolio of placement providers already, but are always looking to make new connections. Term-time placements must be in the North West region; summer placements are nationwide.

For more information, and to register your organisation with us, please contact Sam Bird.
