North West’s Largest Independent Estate Agent

With culture, vibrancy and creativity pulsating through its veins, there is little wonder why Liverpool is one of the best cities in the country to attend university.

The city is home to three universities, including Liverpool Hope University which is renowned for its education faculty, which ranks twelfth in the country. However, the two most recognised universities are the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University, with their iconic buildings becoming a huge part of the city’s landscape. 

Both establishments enjoy friendly rivalries and thrive in their own distinct persona which, perhaps like a scene from Harry Potter, is what many use when opting for their preferred choice. Whether it is the established and deep-rooted persona of the University of Liverpool to the young and vibrant person of Liverpool John Moores University. 

Not only content with providing excellent and historic educational establishments to prospective students, the city offers much more to create an overall brilliant experience that many graduates fondly reminisce. From fantastic student nightlife, free cultural explorations in some of the most iconic museums and art galleries and many quirky, independent stores. Liverpool may be smaller than most cities but within its compact areas are places bursting with exciting personalities, offering much to see and visitors will always discover something new to do there. 

Its strong-willed independence makes the city feel distinctly foreign from others in the country, which is why attending university here is much more of an experience. From its own colloquial language, humour and warmth, there is no city on earth quite like Liverpool. 

The University of Liverpool

The University of Liverpool is one of the city’s most prestigious educational institutions and one of the six original Red Brick universities. The “Uni of” as its locally known by students, has many accolades including an impressive list of alumni that include nine Nobel Prize winners.  

Set over a vast campus of one-hundred acres, many of the university’s buildings are based in the beautiful Georgian houses near the Arts District. However, the iconic Victoria Building is the flagship building in its estate, with its architecture inspiring the term ‘Red Brick University”.

Prospective students can choose to study from over two-hundred courses across three separate faculties including the Faculty of Health & Life Sciences, the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences and the Faculty of Science and Engineering. 

Five Rites of Passage

Student Studies Books in Park 1 Abercrombie Square

By winter, Abercrombie Square is just a pretty green space in the middle of the beautiful Georgian houses. However, in summer the park turns into a thriving hub for students, who will take their books and study on the grass, enjoying a picnic with friends in the picture-perfect university life. 
Medication Club, Liverpool with Student Party 2 Medication Club

For over a decade, Medication has defined Liverpool’s student nightlife, almost gaining a cult-like following with students heading along to the Arts Club on Friday Night, unknowingly making some of the best memories that will come from their university years.

The Guild, as it’s locally known, caters for University of Liverpool Students. Although most others will find themselves here at some point. Here, students can enjoy events and even a bar, which hosts live music and a pub quiz each week. The university’s version of Central Perk.  
The Raz, or Blue Angel Nightclub, Seel Street 4 The Raz

The Blue Angel Nightclub, or The Raz, as it is locally known is steeped in history. The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan have played there and it is hugely popular with the students of Liverpool. With its mix of cheesy pop music and sing-along classics, it’s a must during university years.

St. Lukes Church, the Bombed-Out Church Liverpool 5 The Bombed-Out Church 

The Bombed-Out Church is like no other building in Liverpool, standing in its original state after a World War Two bomb hit the site. With no roof, the iconic building has turned into a spectacular event venue. From open-air raves to Harry Potter quizzes, a must for the visiting student.

Liverpool John Moores University

Originally a Polytechnic, Liverpool John Moores University has fast become one of the largest universities in the UK. It was named after the Founder of Littlewoods, a Liverpool born company founded by Sir John Moores, who strongly believed in creating an opportunity for all, regardless of background.

The university offers around two-hundred-and-fifty courses across five faculties including the Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies, the Faculty of Education, Health and Community, the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Engineering and Technology and the Liverpool Business School.  

The university has three main campuses including City Campus, Mount Pleasant Campus and I M Marsh Campus in Aigburth.
