Our Reputation

Our colleagues can be proud to work for the University of Liverpool. We are the original ‘redbrick’ University, and a member of the Russell Group – an elite group of research-intensive UK Universities. We also feature in the top 0.7% of universities worldwide (CWRU 2020-21) and rank in the top 20 in the UK for research excellence (REF 2021).

As an institution, we have much to be proud of with our reputation and profile on a national and international stage such as:

  • The University of Liverpool is member of the Russell Group – a group of 24 leading UK universities with a focus on conducting world-class research and delivering excellent teaching in order to build a better future for the UK and address global challenges
  • We are associated with nine Nobel Laureates
  • An outstanding research profile with research themes which encourage world-leading interdisciplinary research
  • Consistently ranking amongst the top universities in the UK for research excellence, with the majority of research rated 4* (world leading) or 3* (internationally excellent) (Ref 2021)
  • Consistently ranked highly in recognised publications, both nationally and globally, e.g. Center for World University Rankings, 2020-2021.

I like the idea of belonging to an institution that has been part of the fabric of the city for so long, somewhere that people can realise their potential and go on to do great things.
