Life in

Liverpool is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and friendly city, and the campus with all its facilities is right in the city centre. With its rich and varied cultural history, Liverpool is home to more museums, galleries, festivals and historic buildings than any other city in the UK, with fantastic events throughout the year. Having been voted both the friendliest and kindest city in the UK, Liverpool welcomes international students to the city which itself is a diverse melting pot of cultures, including the oldest Chinese community in the UK. Liverpool's historic waterfront is a World Heritage site, reflecting in great part the historical links with the US, as the major port of embarkation for Europeans emigrating to the United States and home of the first US consulate in the UK. Despite being a major European city, Liverpool is within a short distance of the mountains of North Wales and the Lake District and is connected to mainland Europe and beyond via the nearby Liverpool and Manchester international airports.
