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.

Life in Liverpool is the best I have experienced. I‘ve loved my time here from the research-led teaching by pioneering lecturers and living in halls with enthusiastic students from all over the world. I’m very happy to be in this city I now call home with its wonderful tourist attractions and lovely friendly people.
