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.

This University has opened up a world of opportunities for me. I’ve discovered how to become a better version of myself. Lecturers encourage independent thinking and modules have an emphasis on practical work. It is outstanding how much I’ve learnt in such a short time and everyone is extremely supportive, any international student would feel welcome here.
