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.

I think the best thing about studying here is the diversity. I’ve made friends with people from so many different countries and there’s lots of different clubs to join (I joined the skydiving club last year, it was fantastic)! Studying here has also helped me to better manage my life and make me more independent.
