Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
The University of Liverpool has been at the forefront of Health & Life Sciences research for 130 years and continues to build on the impressive research knowledge, experience, resources and partnerships that have been amassed. The Faculty has over 2,300 staff, 6,000 undergraduates and 1,000 postgraduate students who, together with many alumni and partners, are helping to build the University’s reputation every day.

The total cost of research projects awarded in 2018/19 within the Faculty was £60million, and 81% of our research is ranked world-leading and internationally excellent.
The Faculty has four Institutes:

- Institute of Systems, Molecular and Integrative Biology.
School of Veterinary Science
The University of Liverpool Veterinary School was the first vet school to be part of a university (in 1904), demonstrating its early emphasis on scientific progress and evidence-based, academic veterinary medicine. This innovative approach has continued to the present day: the school regularly does well in league tables, has internationally renowned clinicians and scientists working in its hospitals, clinics and laboratories, and its graduates and staff have held some of the leading roles in the veterinary profession.
This isn't just about great training, important though that is. It's about constantly developing veterinary science and practice – and getting it into front line animal and human health care as efficiently as possible.
