The University of Liverpool was founded in 1881 and has been at the forefront of teaching and learning in the UK ever since. Almost 19,000 students are currently studying undergraduate, postgraduate masters and PhD programmes in the University's 3 Faculties: Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Engineering, and Health and Life Sciences. The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine is affiliated to the University. The campus also hosts the Natural Environment Research Council's Proudman Oceanographic Laboratories. Over 2,500 international students from more than 110 countries currently make the University of Liverpool their home.
Liverpool is a member of the Russell Group of Britain's leading research universities and has an annual income of more than £270 million. Liverpool is the lead institution for several UK national centres, including the Cockcroft Institute for Accelerator Science, the National Centre for Zoonosis Research and the UK Department of Health Biomedical Research Centre for Microbial Disease. The high standard of education and research at the University of Liverpool is confirmed by independent UK Government inspection and assessment. 53% of the University's research activity, including environment and research outputs, was ranked in the highest categories of 4* (world-leading) and 3* (internationally excellent) in the 2008 national Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). Liverpool was ranked in the top 10 nationally in a number of disciplines, including Materials, Architecture, Infection and Immunology, History, Archaeology, Chemistry and Computer Science. Likewise, the University has achieved high scores in recent assessments of its teaching quality.
The University Students' Guild, which possesses one of the largest student facilities in Europe, offers a variety of services from entertainment to advice, representation to skills training. Liverpool is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and friendly city, and the campus with all its facilities is right in the city centre. Liverpool was awarded the accolade of European Capital of Culture for 2008, reflecting its excellence and activity in the arts, architecture, music, performance and science. Liverpool's historic waterfront is a World Heritage site, reflecting in great part the history of the city as the major port of embarkation for Europeans emigrating to the United States. Despite being a major European city, Liverpool is within a short travel distance of the mountains of North Wales and the English Lake District.
