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.

My course combines theoretical knowledge in lectures with practical, hands-on knowledge in the labs which makes it much easier to understand what is being taught. This is one of the best universities in the world and it will prepare me academically for whatever challenges are ahead.
