Statement: University of Liverpool in London Campus closure

The University has today announced it will be closing its London Campus at the end of this academic year. The campus, based in the city’s financial district, will continue operating degree programmes until summer 2020.

Gavin Brown, Executive Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education at the University of Liverpool said:

“The University of Liverpool was the first non-London based Russell Group university to open a campus in London, an achievement we are extremely proud of. For the past six years, we have delivered a professionally focused portfolio to an international community of postgraduate students and delivered innovative final year options to our undergraduates.

During this period however, our strategic priorities have evolved and we are now seeking to focus our energy on driving access to education through a dual local and global vision, which will see a major programme of investment in our campus in Liverpool alongside the launch of a new generation of online programmes accessible to students all over the world. This reflects our civic mission to achieve positive economic and social change and means that, regrettably, our strategic focus for the immediate future has moved away from maintaining a presence in the capital.

We are committed to continuing to deliver an excellent educational experience for students enrolled with us this academic year, preparing them to leave us as highly-skilled, commercially aware, workforce-ready graduates.”
