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 classmates are so friendly and willing to help each other. We get great support from the staff, too. I really enjoy studying at the university and my new life in Liverpool. I love the city, especially the astonishing views at the Albert Dock.
