It’s not about where you’ve come from, it’s about where you want to go. At the University of Liverpool, we're proud of our incredibly diverse population of students. They come to us from all walks of life. High achievers. Dreamers. Future leaders. They all have one thing in common; drive and ambition to achieve their goals.

They're a force to be reckoned with. And you could be too. Read on to start your origin story in 2025.

Elouise, a student featured in our Origin Stories campaign.

I’d always dreamt of a career in Dentistry, but a series of personal challenges made that look almost impossible for me a few years ago. After leaving my family home I was placed in supported living, out of education, jobless and claiming benefits – and was even declared homeless at one point. I’m now studying Dentistry with a Foundation Year at Liverpool, and am blessed to be a recipient of the fully-funded Divock Origi scholarship – a huge help with my finances. None of this would have been possible if I hadn’t chosen to study at the University of Liverpool.
