As a distinguished 21st century university we have global reach and influence that reflects our academic heritage as a civic institution.
A strong infrastructure will support academic endeavour and teaching prowess, while research excellence, focused on the achievement of human knowledge, will underpin all our activities.
Our culture of support and collaboration will benefit the communities in which we operate, both at home and overseas. Our staff and students will be given the best intellectual, social and physical environment to research, teach and learn in, at the cutting edge of their disciplines and with world-class facilities.
The Liverpool Graduate will be a global citizen, benefiting from an international curriculum and experience, and empowered to address global challenges. We will strive to ensure our students form a relationship with the University that they will want to continue throughout their lives.
The University's 21,000 strong student community represents a broad cross-section of the world's population and is one of the reasons why studying at Liverpool is so special.
People from over 100 countries study at the University and we cater for all ages, including mature students wishing to develop their professional skills, change paths or simply pursue their passions.
Through our extensive support and inclusion programmes we are able to welcome talented people from all sections of society, including those communities least represented in Higher Education.
The result is a remarkably diverse but cohesive student population that’s determined to excel and is strongly engaged in the life of both the University and the city of Liverpool.
The epicentre of student life is the Guild of Students. This not only powers the social life on campus but also provides a centre for advice, shared interests, student representation and more.
Our students, once they graduate, are in high demand. HESA’s figures for 2007/2008 show that 94.3% of Graduates from the University are in employment or further study.
