The following information has been provided by the University of Liverpool:

The University of Liverpool was founded in 1881 and has been at the forefront of teaching and learning in the UK ever since. Almost 21,800 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 (LSTM) is affiliated to the University. The campus also hosts part of the Natural Environment Research Council's National Oceanographic Centre (NOC). Over 6,000 international students from more than 110 countries currently make the University of Liverpool their home.  Many are attracted by some of our specialist subject areas which are unique to Liverpool such as International Slavery and Science Fiction literature, both originating from local culture and history and our own special library collections

Liverpool is a member of the Russell Group of Britain's leading research universities and has an annual turnover of more than £400 million, including £110 million in research income. The excellence of education and research at the University of Liverpool is confirmed by independent UK Government assessment. 53% of the University’s research activity, including environment and research outputs, was ranked 20th in the highest categories of 4* (world-leading) and 3* (internationally excellent) in the 2014 national Research Excellence Framework (REF) with 7 disciplines in the top 10.   The newly refurbished University Students' Guild, 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. We have brand new on campus student accommodation right in the heart of the city. Liverpool was European Capital of Culture for 2008, indicative of its excellence 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 distance of the mountains of North Wales and the Lake District.

Strategic partnership links with the USA are being strengthened with a strong focus on the State of Georgia, where the city of Liverpool has strong historical and cultural connections.  The University currently has active partnerships with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), University of Georgia, Athens and Emory.  Areas of collaboration include infectious diseases, engineering, advanced materials and slavery studies.  Individual research groups have many other links with institutions in the USA.

The University opened a campus in London in September 2013 which hosts largely taught postgraduate students across a range of programmes, information about the London Campus and its programmes can be found .
