Liverpool life

A vibrant community

Our student population is active in all areas of the University, including influencing how and what we teach. Through the Liverpool Guild of Students, you can get involved in student societies, volunteer in the wider community or take part in some of the exciting events held every year.


A fantastic academic experience

The University of Liverpool was founded in 1881 as University College Liverpool and is the original ‘redbrick’ University (a term used to describe the older civic Universities in the UK). In 1994, it was one of the founding members of the Russell Group, which is a collective organisation representing the top 24 research universities in the UK. We have a distinguished and proud history and are certain that with us, you will have a top-class academic experience

Despite big ambitions and over a century of tradition, we are also keen to provide our students with a fantastic experience, and are known for our friendly attitude and commitment to having a diverse student population. Today, we are a vibrant and dynamic University covering a huge variety of research areas and creating a positive impact across the globe.
