Studying this programme provides a route into any of the BEng degree programmes currently available in the School of Engineering.
You will undertake a foundation year (year zero) at Carmel College, St Helens, about nine miles from the university campus, where the class sizes are small and the standards of academic achievement high.
The programme, which is moderated by University staff, comprises introductory modules in Physics and Mathematics, with students choosing a third optional module from Chemistry or Information Technology. In year two, three and four, students follow their chosen course from a number of available Engineering programmes.

Discover what you'll learn, what you'll study, and how you'll be taught and assessed.
Students follow three foundation modules chosen from Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology or Geography. Module choice depends on the programme students wish to follow after the foundation year.
How you'll learn
We are leading the UK’s involvement in the international Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) initiative – an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers.
Our degree programmes encompass the development of a holistic, systems approach to engineering. Technical knowledge and skills are complemented by a sound appreciation of the life-cycle processes involved in engineering and an awareness of the ethical, safety, environmental, economic, and social considerations involved in practicing as a professional engineer.
You will be taught through a combination of face-to-face teaching in group lectures, laboratory sessions, tutorials, and seminars. Our programmes include a substantial practical component, with an increasing emphasis on project work as you progress through to the final year. You will be supported throughout by an individual academic adviser.
How you're assessed
Assessment takes many forms, each appropriate to the learning outcomes of the particular module studied. The main modes of assessment are coursework and examination. Depending on the modules taken, you may encounter project work, presentations (individual and/or group), and specific tests or tasks focused on solidifying learning outcomes.
We have a distinctive approach to education, the Liverpool Curriculum Framework, which focuses on research-connected teaching, active learning, and authentic assessment to ensure our students graduate as digitally fluent and confident global citizens.
You’ll study in the School of Engineering, which hosts modern, world-class teaching and learning facilities. This includes the Active Learning Laboratories, which feature lab space, manufacturing robots and prototyping facilities so you can learn, build and test. You’ll also have access to high-spec workstations featuring industry-standard engineering software.

Careers and employability
The University of Liverpool’s Careers and Employability Service maximises opportunities for career prospects, graduate opportunities, student summer placements and the annual engineering careers fair with 30 blue chip companies attending (including Jaguar Land Rover, Nestle, Toyota, JCB, British Army, United Utilities, ABB Ltd, Network Rail, BAE Systems and many more). Our degrees provide pathways into rewarding careers and our graduates have found employment in a wide range of international industries and organisations.
Our research-led teaching ensures that we incorporate the latest advances in cutting edge engineering research. 95% of our research is deemed world leading or internationally excellent, and is highly regarded by engineering industries and partners. As well as achieving a degree qualification, you will graduate as an industry-ready engineer who has both practical experience and highly desirable skills to the engineering industry.
Preparing you for future success
At Liverpool, our goal is to support you to build your intellectual, social, and cultural capital so that you graduate as a socially-conscious global citizen who is prepared for future success. We achieve this by:
- Embedding employability within your , through the modules you take and the opportunities to gain real-world experience offered by many of our courses.
- Providing you with opportunities to gain experience and develop connections with people and organisations, including student and graduate employers as well as our global alumni.

The qualifications and exam results you'll need to apply for this course.
My qualifications are from: United Kingdom.
A typical offer is likely to be CDD at A level, in related subjects. Students with alternative A level combinations are welcome to apply but should expect to be made higher offers. For further information, visit www.carmel.ac.uk, email email@example.com or telephone +44 (0)1744 452 213.Applicants over 21 can be considered on GCSEs alone.
|GCSE||All applicants must have a minimum of five GCSEs at grade C/4 or above, including English Language, Mathematics and two Sciences. Core and Additional Science/Dual Science acceptable as the two Sciences. Alternatively, if separate sciences are being studied then one of these must be GCSE Physics. Applicants over 21 can be considered on GCSEs alone.|
Many countries have a different education system to that of the UK, meaning your qualifications may not meet our direct entry requirements. Although there is no direct Foundation Certificate route to this course, completing a Foundation Certificate, such as that offered by the University of Liverpool International College, can guarantee you a place on a number of similar courses which may interest you.
