Discover the spirit of the University of LiverpoolView(s):
Educating for the professions within a culture of international research excellence, has always been at the heart of the University of Liverpool’s mission
Historically the University of Liverpool has focused strongly on ‘education for the professions’ and this continues today with globally renowned courses in disciplines such as Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Business and Veterinary science.
The University’s teaching is at the forefront of knowledge and is often delivered by internationally renowned individuals. This includes an increasing number of experts from our developing international network of partner institutions.
Liverpool’s £35m Active Learning Laboratory at the School of Engineering is a good example of how the University is creating new teaching and learning methods. The laboratory provides a faithfully simulated workplace environment in which students can develop ‘industry ready’ skills.
Active Learning refers to the belief than engineers often learn best by taking part in an activity – working in a team, building products, and finding out how his or her ideas and designs work. This Active Learning approach applies not only to the obvious parts of each programme – design and project work – but also to the ways in which a student learns the science that underpins a good engineered product.
The Laboratory is geared towards realising the concept of ‘The Liverpool Engineer’, an initiative that aims to produce graduates that are ready to actively participate in areas experienced by a professional engineer. Students at the University are tasked with building and testing machines such as robots, water-powered rockets and remote controlled aircraft, as well as working in teams building large-scale structures such as bridges.
Employability is a primary goal for the University across all subject areas, so course development is strongly informed by industry and the professions. According to the most recent HESA data, 93% of our graduates are engaged in employment or further study.
