The University of Liverpool is a remarkable place, combining academic excellence with the attributes of our famous home maritime city: a spirit of creativity, welcoming to all, and committed to social responsibility.

Established in 1881, we are the original ‘redbrick’ university – a phrase inspired by our distinctive redbrick Victoria Building. This spirit of originality shapes everything we do; ideas are born here that transform industries and travel the globe, touching and improving millions of lives as they go.

Our founding mission – ‘for the advancement of learning and ennoblement of life’ reflects our belief in the transformative power of research and education. And our Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework highlights our commitment to world-class teaching and learning. Employability is embedded throughout our programmes, and our graduates enjoy high employability rates.

With over 30,000 students and 280,000 alumni across over 170 countries, our diverse, multicultural community makes us a home for all kinds of ambitions and all kinds of achievements.
