About Us

Continuing Education at the University of Liverpool  has been offering course to the local community in city and wider region for over 100 years. Based in the Centre for Lifelong Learning, it offers an exciting and diverse range of courses, lectures and events both on and off campus. Drawing on the experience and expertise of the University’s academic community its  purpose is to build a stimulating and enjoyable learning environment for all – whether you are studying for credit or for the sheer pleasure of learning.

The history of the University  dates back to 1882, when University College opened its doors to 45 students. The Victoria Building, which gave rise to the term 'red brick university', opened in 1892 and since its establishment a key institutional priority has been to work with and for its local community.

The Continuing Education is open to all; no entrance qualifications are required. Our programme is taught by friendly and expert staff who will guide you through your studies. We look forward to welcoming you on to one of our courses.
