Culture Calendar & Events

The Global Opportunities Team organises a series of excursions throughout the semester especially for inbound students. You will see the 'real' Liverpool through activities you won't find on the tourist board! These events are low cost and run by the Global Opportunities Team - come along to learn more about Liverpool and make friends along the way.

Upcoming events:

You can view and sign up to all of our Semester 2 Culture Calendar events, by heading over to the Inbound Canvas Portal.

If you’re currently considering applying to study abroad with us here in Liverpool or are due to start your studies with us soon and would like to find out more about what sort of events to expect on our Culture Calendar, here is what events ran in Semester 1 2022/23:

Music & Film Tour 

This wonderful and insightful tour combines both the history of the city with its modern day cultural influences through Film and Music! From the Beatles to Queen - come and learn about why Liverpool is the Capital of Pop and how film and TV producers are choosing Liverpool to film more and more - from Harry Potter to Peaky Blinders!

Afternoon Tea 

We’ve organized space at a Liverpool favourite for a traditional English Afternoon Tea. Afternoon Tea is far more than just the hot drink- it’s a cultural experience! You will be served tea, scones with jam and clotted cream, sandwiches, and desserts- and you will have a chance to mingle with other study abroad students.

Alton Towers 

Home to over 40 rides and attractions, Alton Towers is the UK's largest and most loved theme park. 

Ride The Smiler, face your fears on Oblivion and experience the feeling of flying while gliding on Air, then get away from the rollercoasters and take a walk through the park’s elegant gardens. Larger-than-life costume characters and amazing live shows ensure there truly is something for everyone.

Castles of Wales 

Visit the mighty fortress and World Heritage Site of Caernarfon Castle (entrance included) and the stunning setting of Dolbadarn Castle in Wales. Caernarfon Castle was one of Edward I’s most ambitious projects – and one of the most visited attractions in Wales due to its sheer size and impressive architecture. After visiting the castle we will have free time for lunch in Caernarfon town. Next it’s a visit to Llanberis and the scenic Welsh Castle of Dolbadarn – set on Llyn Padarn Lake at the base of the Snowdonia mountain range. A great beauty spot in the UK!

York Day Trip & Christmas Markets 

York is one of the UK’s oldest cities, rich with history and culture. It is popular with tourists and residents alike who enjoy exploring its cobbled streets and independent shops. Attractions include The Shambles - a quaint winding street in the historic quarter, and York Minster - one of the most striking cathedrals in the UK. We will also be visiting the York Christmas Markets - one of the most famous Christmas Markets in the UK.
