We have a worldwide reputation for ground-breaking teaching and research by leading academics. More than 75% of our graduates receive a First or 2:1 and we're first in the Russell Group for graduate employability. With its unique attractions, famously warm welcomes, and global reputation for sport, music, architecture and culture for you to explore, there's nowhere quite like Liverpool.
My experience here has been amazing. I felt a bit homesick initially but this changed as soon as Welcome Week started with its many events for international students. Now, I feel that Liverpool is my new home and the people around me are my second family.
Entry requirements: which qualifications do you need?
Pathway programmes for applicants from Algeria
Many countries have a different education system to that of the UK, so you may need further preparation before you can start university here. Pathway programmes provide an entry route for international students whose qualifications do not meet our entry requirements.
After successfully completing your Foundation Certificate or pre-Master’s programme, you're guaranteed a place on your chosen course. Pathway programmes are offered through the University of Liverpool International College.
Students who have completed an internationally-recognised qualification (e.g. UK A-levels or an International Baccalaureate) can apply for entry to the first year of an undergraduate programme.
The Baccalaureate de l’Enseingnement Secondaire is not equivalent to A-levels. Applicants will be required to complete UK A-levels, the International Baccalaureate or undertake an international foundation year.
English language requirements
To study at the University of Liverpool, you’ll need to demonstrate you can speak English. If you need a visa to study in the UK, evidence of competency in English is required to secure your visa.
We offer a generous range of scholarships and awards for international students. These include:
- Vice-Chancellor’s International Attainment Scholarship (undergraduate)
- Vice-Chancellor’s International Attainment Scholarship (postgraduate)
- University of Liverpool First Class Scholarship
- Postgraduate Progression Award
