About us

Our story began in 1881 when we became one of the first civic universities - the original redbrick.

Today, we’re an internationally renowned, globally-connected Russell Group university, associated with nine Nobel Prize winners, and home to highly-respected research and lively, original thinking.

What makes us different

First-class, state of the art facilities and outstanding student support ensures the university is consistently ranked amongst the top 30 universities in the UK, having recently risen to 19th (Complete University Guide 2025). We're also ranked among the top 200 universities in the world, recently rising to 165 (QS World Rankings 2025). Offering over 600 undergraduate and postgraduate courses, the University has around 33,500 students (including 11,700 international students), and a thriving community of 228,000 alumni in 171 countries.

You’ll be right at home on our beautiful campus. Your department, libraries, the sports centre and the Guild of Students are never more than a short walk away. What’s more, the city centre – a world-famous hub for culture, shopping, and socialising – is just 10 minutes down the hill.

We offer a one-of-a-kind experience and opportunities for everyone. Whoever you are, wherever you’re from and whatever you aspire to be – start your story at Liverpool.

It’s a multicultural university in a diverse, friendly and vibrant city that suits everyone. It was the best three years of my life! The opportunities I had there, the things I got to do and the time I spent with my friends were the best. Liverpool is not just a city, it’s a whole experience!
