Activities for schools
As an institution the University of Liverpool is committed to the delivery of outreach activities, working with schools and colleges across the Liverpool community and beyond.
A list of some of the activities that we provide at institutional and School level is below. We can also tailor activities to suit your specific needs so please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.
We run single events throughout the year for schools and colleges interested in particular subjects. We can work with you to link content to your curriculum or give you a taste of what it is like to study our subjects at University level. Thanks to our wide range of subject areas, we can design sessions that embrace two or more subjects to bring them together for you under a single theme.
Our subject areas are:
- Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology
- Department of History
- Institute of Irish Studies
- Modern Languages and Cultures
- Film Studies
- Department of Politics
We can also include campus tours and visits to University facilities such as:
- The Garstang Museum of Archaeology
- Experimental Archaeology Facilities
- The Sydney Jones Library
- Special Collections and Archives
- The Victoria Gallery and Museum
- Partner institutions in the city with which we work, eg
