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.

The best part of studying at the University of Liverpool is the diversity within the student body. As an international student I have made friends with other students from around the globe some of which are my best friends and roommates today.
