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.
One of the first things you notice when you come to Liverpool is how friendly the people are and international students are clearly welcome here. The University of Liverpool is very diverse and it has given me the opportunity to meet people from all over England and well as the rest of the world.
Entry requirements: which qualifications do you need?
The ZIMSEC A-Level Certificate/Cambridge Higher School Certificate (HSC) is accepted for entrance to undergraduate programmes. International Baccalaureate Diploma with a minimum of 30 points.
Successful completion of a Bachelors degree with 65% and above will be considered for entry.
Each application is assessed on its own merits; however students will usually be expected to hold a master's degree in an appropriate discipline. Applications from graduates who do not have master's degrees, but who do have very good undergraduate degrees, and have had previous exposure to research or thesis writing, are also welcomed.
Each research degree lists the English language requirements you'll need to apply.
