For advancement of learning and ennoblement of life
This has been our mission since the University was founded in 1881. To this day, these values focus our efforts as we strive to achieve our ambitions and tackle the grand challenges of the age.

The University
Original and inclusive for 140 years, we’re a truly inspirational place to learn and research. We’re also a place where students develop a rich world view, as well as the skills and confidence to thrive in today’s connected world.

Our city
Warm and welcoming, characterful and full of characters, there’s nowhere quite like Liverpool. It’s home to 445,000 people and one unique spirit. A Liverpool’s influence shapes the world – art, music, sport and culture, and with more galleries and museums than any other UK city apart from London The city’s entrepreneurial and creative spirit is fueling a boom in business start-ups, but Liverpool also attracts many global businesses to make the city their home. Liverpool marches to the beat of its own drum, and always has. And, like us, you’ll be proud to call it home.
