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.

At University of Liverpool I study alongside students from all around the world which is an enriching experience. The English law system is influential across the world so it’s an invaluable experience as an international law student to study in England and gain first-hand insights into the English legal system from leading experts.
