In Liverpool, you'll find a warm welcome in a one-of-a-kind city. The city is home to Liverpool's first mosque, the Quilliam mosque, which opened in 1889 and is still open today. Our university has a prestigious reputation as part of the Russell Group and we support students to become highly employable, creative and culturally rich graduates.
I really enjoy the large amount of practical, hands-on learning this University offers. I also love the fact that everyday I’m learning something new and expanding on my knowledge. There is so much support for students on my course, if I ever need help it is always available.
Entry requirements: which qualifications do you need?
Pathway programmes for applicants from Saudi Arabia
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 have followed the national curriculum (Tawjihiyah) are advised to complete the Foundation Certificate at the University of Liverpool International College or an equivalent foundation programme.
A-levels, International Baccalaureate Diploma, SATs
Students offering A-levels, the International Baccalaureate Diploma or SATs can apply for direct entry to year one of undergraduate programmes.
Saudi students holding a bachelor's degree can apply for master's programmes. For most programmes we will be looking for a GPA from a recognised Saudi university of at least 3 out of 4 or 3.5 out of 5.
Each application is assessed on its own merits, although students will be expected to hold both a bachelor's and a master's degree. Previous exposure to research or thesis writing is highly desirable.
Each research degree lists the English language requirements you'll need to apply.
