About the University of Liverpool and Scholarship

The University of Liverpool (UOL), affectionately known locally as “The Uni of,” stands as a distinguished public research institution situated in Liverpool, England. Its origins trace back to 1881 when it was founded as a college. Subsequently, in 1903, the university received its Royal Charter, granting it the authority to confer degrees. It holds a prominent position among the “red brick” civic universities, earning the distinction of being the first to be recognized as “The Original Red Brick.”

The university comprises three faculties, housing a total of 35 departments and schools. As a testament to its academic excellence, the University of Liverpool is a founding member of prestigious groups like the Russell Group and the N8 Group, fostering collaborative research efforts. Notably, the university management school holds triple crown accreditation.


An illustrious list of alumni and past faculty includes ten Nobel Prize winners, and the institution offers a comprehensive range of over 230 first-degree courses across 103 subjects. Successful individuals who have walked the halls of the University of Liverpool include CEOs of globally recognized companies such as GlobalFoundries, ARM Holdings, Tesco, Motorola, and The Coca-Cola Company.

The university has been a trailblazer in various fields, being the first in the UK to establish departments in oceanography, civic design, architecture, and biochemistry at the Johnston Laboratories. In a groundbreaking move, in 2006, it became the first UK university to establish an independent institution in China—Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University—marking the world’s inaugural Sino-British university collaboration.

Financially robust, the University of Liverpool reported a turnover of £612.6 million for the academic year 2021–22, with a significant portion derived from research grants and contracts. Its endowment ranks seventh among English universities.
