Founded at the end of the 19th century, the University of Liverpool gained official university status in 1903.
Liverpool University is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research intensive universities and has been engaged in ground breaking research from its early days (pioneering work, for example, in radio transmission, medical x-rays and chemotherapy).
The University boasts nine Nobel Prize winners and its curriculum stretches across a range of academic disciplines in the areas of Health and Life Sciences; Humanities and Social Sciences; and Science and Engineering. The University also has its own medical school.
The University hosts its own museum: the Victoria Gallery and Museum which is housed in the University’s original iconic red brick building.
