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 master’s has exceeded my expectations with its high level learning, support, great diversity of students, and professors who are experts in their field. I like that the city is relatively small so I can get to most places riding my bicycle, yet there is always something happening here it’s never boring.
Entry requirements: which qualifications do you need?
Pathway programmes for applicants from Guatemala
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 obtain the Bachillerato are advised to complete the Foundation Certificate at University of Liverpool International College or an equivalent foundation programme in order to be considered for undergraduate study.
A-levels, International Baccalaureate Diploma, SATs
Students offering A-levels, the International Baccalaureate Diploma with a minimum of 28 points or SATs can apply for direct entry to year one of undergraduate programmes.
