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.

There is plenty of support here; the institution is so well equipped to meet the needs of students. I have experienced a quality of student life that for me is perfection. The city of Liverpool is so charming, I enjoy its rich culture, history, pace of life and architectural beauty, there is never a dull moment.
