About the University

The University of Liverpool has a strong history at the heart of the UK's educational revolution in the nineteenth-century. Founded as a college in 1881, it is known as one of the six original 'redbrick' universities. As a founding member of the Russell Group and the N8 Research Collaboration Group, Liverpool's reputation is significant. Liverpool is a truly global university offering a distinctive international experience. 

Throughout its 139 years of history, it has welcomed scholars from all over the world and therefore is highly experienced in meeting the needs of international students. Liverpool is a dynamic and diverse city, built on the trade and transport of the industrial revolution, and is home-from-home for all students.
