The University of Liverpool
The term "red brick university" originates in Liverpool where the buildings' colouring was a distinguishing feature but it has since become shorthand for a generation of institutions which brought university education to the north of England. At Liverpool, you will expect everything that is classic redbrick: excellent ratings in teaching and research, a large and diverse student body, a strong sense of self and a location in a top city.
The university has a wide range of courses at different levels on offer, from Bachelors of Art to PhDs, and many of these include a year working in industry. Its more attractive courses include Law (approved in Singapore), Aerospace Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Tropical Disease Biology.
The University is mainly based around a single urban campus approximately five minutes walk from Liverpool City Centre, at the top of Brownlow Hill and Mount Pleasant. Occupying 100 acres, it contains 192 non-residential buildings that house 69 lecture theatres, 114 teaching areas and state-of-the-art research facilities.
The main site is divided into three faculties: Health and Life Sciences; Humanities and Social Sciences; and Science and Engineering. The Veterinary Teaching Hospital (Leahurst) and Ness Botanical Gardens are based on the Wirral Peninsula.
In 2011 the University made a commitment to invest £660m into the 'Student Experience', £250m of which will reportedly be spent on Student Accommodation. Fifty-one residential buildings, on or near the campus, provide 3,385 rooms for students, on a catered or self-catering basis. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
