Study in Liverpool, and find the best universities in Liverpool.

Best known as the hometown of the Beatles, as well as for its two Premier League football clubs, Liverpool is a thriving city, with friendly residents, three universities, and a student population of almost 55,000.

Liverpool is situated in the north of England, on the country’s west coast, and is a cultural and historical centre. Named as European Capital of Culture in 2008, beating off rivals including Oxford and Bristol, the city is teaming with museums, galleries and restaurants. You are unlikely to find a more lively city in which to study your undergraduate degree. 

Study in Liverpool?

Liverpool is home to three universities. The University of Liverpool is a highly regarded higher education institution, and a member of the Russell Group of research-led universities in the UK. It is an extremely popular destination for overseas students who are looking to study in the UK, and currently has over 2,500 international students from more than 120 countries.

Liverpool John Moores University is newer, having been granted university status in 1992, whilst Liverpool Hope University is an ecumenical university, aimed at Christian students – it is the only university of this kind in Europe.

Undergraduate degrees at these universities normally take between 3-4 years to complete.

If you are a non-EU student coming to Cambridge to study, you’ll need to apply for a student visa under the tier 4 visa category. In order to qualify, you’ll need to demonstrate the following:

  • Proof of funding to cover an undergraduate course and living costs
  • A confirmation of acceptance to study (CAS) reference from a university with sponsor status
  • Adequate English language skills
You can find out more about visas at the UK Border Agency. 

Accommodation and living costs

Most students coming to Liverpool will choose to live in university halls of accommodation on arrival, as this is the easiest way to settle into student life and adapt to a new city.

Alternatively you may choose to live off campus in privately rented accommodation, either with friends or independently. You might live in a house or a flat, where you will be responsible for paying things such as the electricity and other bills.

Accommodation company Liverpool Student Homes is run by all three universities and can help you to find a suitable place to live.
