Founded in 1881, the University of Liverpool is a world-leading institution. With over 22,000 students - including more than 7,700 international students from over 130 countries (plus a further 10,000+ online students), it offers a diverse and welcoming place to live and study.
For advancement of learning and ennoblement of life-this has been our mission since the University was founded in 1881. To this day, these values focus our efforts as we strive to achieve our ambitions and tackle the grand challenges of the age.
Our aim is to support our students as they become highly employable, creative, and culturally rich graduates, with the capacity to find employment that will enable them to be agents for change in a connected world with more than 400 available undergraduate and postgraduate programmes available, spanning a huge variety of different subject areas.
Belonging to the elite Russell Group, the University of Liverpool is a pioneer in several fields of research. It works with leading research institutes, universities and organisations across the world, including links with nine Nobel laureates. The Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) in China is an example of where international students can develop skills and professional connections abroad.
Student support is a priority, and the university offers hundreds of scholarships annually, as well as continuous professional development programmes. A dedicated support team is also available for international students.
Its award-winning Careers & Employability Service equips international students with effective job-searching skills. 94 per cent of its graduates are either employed or in further study within six months of graduation (DLHE 2016/17).
Liverpool itself is an iconic city. Home to The Beatles, two premier-league football clubs and a World Heritage skyline, more than 54 million visitors come to the city each year. It has been voted as the fourth friendliest city in the world by Rough Guide, and students can enjoy the many museums, galleries, theatres and listed buildings in the city - of which there are more of than any other British city (except London).
