    University College Liverpool

    The uni­ver­sity was es­tab­lished in 1881 as Uni­ver­sity Col­lege Liv­er­pool, ad­mit­ting its first stu­dents in 1882. In 1884, it be­came part of the fed­eral Vic­to­ria Uni­ver­sity. In 1894 Oliver Lodge, a pro­fes­sor at the uni­ver­sity, made the world's first pub­lic radio trans­mis­sion and two years later took the first sur­gi­cal X-ray in the United Kingdom. The Liv­er­pool Uni­ver­sity Press was founded in 1899, mak­ing it the third old­est uni­ver­sity press in Eng­land. Stu­dent...

    University status

    Fol­low­ing a royal char­ter and act of Par­lia­ment in 1903, it be­came an in­de­pen­dent uni­ver­sity (the Uni­ver­sity of Liv­er­pool) with the right to con­fer its own de­grees. The next few years saw major de­vel­op­ments at the uni­ver­sity, in­clud­ing Sir Charles Sher­ring­ton's dis­cov­ery of the synapse and William Blair-Bell's work on chemother­apy in the treat­ment of can­cer. In the 1930s to 1940s Sir James Chad­wick and Sir Joseph Rot­blat made major con­tri­bu­tions to the de­v...

    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 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. There was for­merly a ma­rine bi­ol­ogy re­search sta­tion at Port Erin on the Isle of Manuntil it closed in 2006. Fifty-one res­i­den­tial build­ings, on or near the cam­pus, pro­vide 3,385 rooms for stu­dents, on a catered or self-cater­ing basis. The cen­tre­piece of the cam­pus re­mains the Uni­ver­sity's orig­i­nal red brick build­ing, the Vic­to­ria Build­ing. Opened in 1892, it has re­cent...

    The uni­ver­sity is ranked in the top 1% of uni­ver­si­ties world­wide ac­cord­ing to Aca­d­e­mic rank­ing of world uni­ver­si­ties and has pre­vi­ously been ranked within the top 150 uni­ver­sity glob­ally by the guide.It is also a found­ing mem­ber of the Rus­sell Group and a found­ing mem­ber of the North­ern Con­sor­tium. The uni­ver­sity is a re­search-based uni­ver­sity with 33,000 stu­dents pur­su­ing over 450 pro­grammes span­ning 54 sub­ject areas. It has a broad range of teach­ing and re­search in both arts and sci­ences, and the Uni­ver­sity of Liv­er­pool School of Med­i­cine es­tab­lished in 1835 is today one of the largest med­ical schools in the UK. It also has strong links to the neigh­bour­ing Royal Liv­er­pool Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal. In Sep­tem­ber 2008, Sir Howard Newby took up the post of Vice Chan­cel­lor of the Uni­ver­sity, fol­low­ing the re­tire­ment of Sir Drum­mond Bone.

    The university has two teaching campuses. The larger of these (though still small, with a built area occupying around 30 acres) is Hope Park (map) in Childwall, in the vicinity of Childwall Woods and Calderstones Park. The university's specialist campus for music and visual and performing arts teaching is the Creative Campus (map) in Everton next to St Francis Xavier's Church. The university also has a residential-only campus, Aigburth Park in St Michael's, and Plas Caerdeon, an outdoor education centre in Snowdonia, North Wales. The university's teaching campuses contain three Grade II listed buildings. One of these is the former main building of Saint Katharine's College at Hope Park, now renamed as the Hilda Constance Allen Building. The Creative Campus includes the other two: the former Saint Francis Xavier's School (now the Cornerstone Building) designed by Henry Clutton, and the former LSPCC (Liverpool Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) building at 3 Islington...

    The Victorian colleges

    The university's earliest origins lie in the Warrington Training College set up in 1844 under the auspices of the Rector of Warrington Horatio Powys. Powys – who has a lecture theatre named in his honour in the EDEN Building – was the first Secretary of the Board of Education set up by the Diocese of Chester in 1839. The Warrington Training College was the second college set up by the Chester Diocesan Board within the current boundaries of Cheshire; the first having been established in Cheste...

    A third college and university affiliation

    In 1930, by coincidence the same year as Saint Katharine's (then Warrington) Training College arrived in Liverpool, the Victoria University of Manchester (VUM) and the University of Liverpool had set up a Training College Examinations Board covering the teacher training colleges that existed at that point within Lancashire – which at that time included both Merseyside and Greater Manchester – and Cheshire. This followed the blueprint for universities being involved in "Joint Examining Boards"...

    Federation and merger of colleges

    The 1972 James Report had forecast a future reduction in teacher training intakes due to an oversupply of trained teachers in the context of the post-baby boom decline in the UK's birth rate since the mid-1960s. In response, the three colleges set up a joint committee in 1973 to discuss federation, establishing an Interim Federal Academic Council in 1974. The momentum towards federation was increased in the mid-1970s when the two Victorian colleges (along with similar institutions across the...

    For many years the university did not take part in university league tables. Upon entering for the first time in 2015 (for the 2016 editions), the university increased its positions, notably in the Guardian league table (which excludes research metrics). In the 2018 table announced in May 2017, the university outperformed its more prestigious neighbour the University of Liverpool for the first time, a fact used by the student news site The Tab in a 2018 April Fool's Day hoaxthat the Universit...

    Late 2010s climb in The Guardian league table

    TEF Gold

    In June 2017 the university was awarded Gold by the UK Government's Office for Students in its Teaching Excellence Framework. It was one of two universities in the Liverpool metro area (the other being Edge Hill) to achieve this rating. The university (alongside Coventry and Nottingham Trent) was named by the Guardianas one of the "excellent modern universities" who had been "rewarded with gold ratings, while some Russell Group institutions had to suffer the indignity of being awarded bronze".

    The university follows a Christian principle to avoid bank loans and has not taken out a new bank loan since the mid-2000s. Expenditure is financed from university cash reserves, and the university budget is set from zero each year with only permanent staffing rolled over. In 2018 the university established an Income Generation Plan to diversify income streams away from a reliance on undergraduate tuition fees.

    Elford's The Foundation of Hope discusses how brand management was of particular importance to the university in the 1990s, with the inception of the "Hope brand" in 1995: "The Hope brand was vigorously developed and marketed"; "New corporate colours [were developed]". The university had previously struggled to unite its three predecessor colleges into a single corporate identity, with "internal dissonances" persisting.Elford argues that, during its time as Liverpool Institute of Higher Education, the university "had effectively failed to establish an identity of its own". The university adopted red as the main corporate colour of the Hope brand, contrasted primarily with white. It is the only university in the Liverpool metro area that uses red, a corporate colour more commonly associated with universities elsewhere in the historic "red rose" county of Lancashire (in particular Lancaster, Salford and UCLan). The university uses red for spiritual/theological rather than geographical...

    Schools and departments

    The university comprises 7 schools and two departments. It is a flat organisation as the 7 schools do not contain departments (though four of the schools are divided less formally into subject teams) and schools/departments are not grouped upwards into middle-management-level faculties. The School of Creative and Performing Arts is located at the Creative Campus, with all other schools/departments at Hope Park.

    The university has 12 research projects/centres: 1. Andrew F. WallsCentre for the Study of African and Asian Christianity 2. Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies 3.

    The Sheppard-Worlock Library is the university's main library. Located at Hope Park (there is also a small library at the Creative Campus), it is blended in to the Hilda Constance Allen Building, extending upwards an original low-rise block running east–west between two wings at the building's northern end. Previously the space had been occupied partly by kitchen and dining facilities. The library was constructed in 1997 at a cost of £5.34m.A£1.5m refurbishment in 2012 included the creation of a British Standard vault for its special collections.

    Student profile

    In 2019/20 the university had 4,985 students including 3,895 undergraduates and 1,090 postgraduates, making it the 126th largest university in the UK (out of the 169 universities included in HESA statistics).The university is less than half the size of the other two universities in the Liverpool metro area with comparable histories, Edge Hill (13,560 students) and its elder sister Chester (13,545 students).

    Comparison with similarly-sized UK universities

    The university has a greater number and proportion of postgraduates than four of the six universities closest to it in size.

    Staff profile

    In 2019/20 the university had 305 academic staff. 230 of these (75.41%) were qualified to doctoral level, placing the university 16th highest in the UK on this measure.The university's aim is for 85% of its academic staff to have doctorates and the remainder to be Professional Tutors with industry experience in areas such as education, law and accountancy.
