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 course combines theoretical knowledge in lectures with practical, hands-on knowledge in the labs which makes it much easier to understand what is being taught. This is one of the best universities in the world and it will prepare me academically for whatever challenges are ahead.
Entry requirements: which qualifications do you need?
Pathway programmes for applicants from Nicaragua
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 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.
Students from Nicaragua who have completed at least four years of study to obtain a Licenciatura or equivalent Professional Title can apply for Taught Masters programmes. For most programmes we will be looking for a minimum of 80% overall.
