University of Liverpool

Founded in 1881, the University of Liverpool has an impressive history of pioneering education and research, with a particular emphasis on 'education for the professions'.


UoL is a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive institutions in the UK. It attracts collaborative and contract research commissions from a wide range of national and international organisations valued at more than £108 million annually. The University’s investment in innovative research has seen the development of interdisciplinary research centres including the Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy focused on research into renewable energy. The University also brings together industry, policy-makers and the research community to develop the knowledge, expertise and techniques required to address food security and sustainability issues: increased competition for land and water, declining fish stocks, climatic and economic change. UoL is globally recognised for its research in health and life sciences, science and engineering, and humanities and social sciences and for the provision of an outstanding teaching and learning experience within a culture of research excellence, which keeps staff at the cutting edge of knowledge and ensures student talent is nurtured and celebrated.
