Why study a master's at the University of Liverpool?

We were established in 1881 and we can truly claim to be the original ‘redbrick’ university – the phrase was coined about our distinctive red brick Victoria Building.

We are rightly proud of our founding mission - ‘for the advancement of learning and ennoblement of life.’ It is inscribed on a plaque on the Victoria building and it remains our mission today, a touchstone for all that we do.  It underlines our belief in the transformative power of research and education, not least in the face of an increasingly complex and challenging world.

We are the original redbrick university.
