Founded in 1881, the University of Liverpool is the original ‘redbrick' university and a founding member of the prestigious Russell Group, associated with nine Nobel Laureates. With almost 30,000 students including 8,000 international students from over 130 countries, Liverpool offers a diverse and welcoming place to live and study.
First-class, state of the art facilities and outstanding student support ensures the university is consistently ranked in the top 30 universities in the UK (The Times 2024), and among the top 200 universities in the world (QS World Rankings 2024).
As a Russell Group University, research is central to everything, and the university reinforced its place as a world leading research institution in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), with 91 percent of the university's research being classed as world leading or internationally excellent.
What this means for students is, Liverpool offers outstanding academic teaching, informed and delivered by inspirational experts, at the forefront of developments in their field. Which no doubt also contributed to the university being awarded the highest rating of Gold, in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2023.
Life at the university isn't just about academic excellence. As a campus university at the heart of a vibrant city, Liverpool has it all, including award-winning student accommodation, and everything students need is right on campus.
Liverpool has a worldwide reputation for sport, music, architecture and culture for students to explore, and an incredible range of restaurants, bars and shops to appeal to all budgets and tastes. With all of this on offer in one of the most cost-effective student cities in the UK, there really is nowhere quite like Liverpool.
