A Semester in England: University of Liverpool Exchange - In-state Students Only

Program Features

EnglandWhy England?

Spend a semester or academic year at the University of Liverpool in North West England on ISU's student exchange program.  As with other exchange programs participants pay ISU tuition and are responsible for living expenses, and airfare.  Participants will automatically be enrolled in ISU's health insurance program for study abroad.  For Iowa residents, the exchange program is the most affordable option for studying in the UK.  Given the competitive nature of this program both residents and non-resident students should consider the non-exchange/direct enroll program in which tuition costs are based on the University of Liverpool's fee to incoming study abroad students.  Depending on the exchange rate, this could be a little less than ISU's out-of-state (non-resident) tuition. For more information on this option click here.

The University was established in 1882 and is comprised of a single urban campus just a 5 minute walk from the city center.  The institution occupies 100 acres, and contains 192 non-residential buildings that house 69 lecture theatres, 114 teaching areas and state-of-the-art research facilities.

The university is ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide and is also is a member of the Russell Group, the top twenty public research institutions in the UK.

The University is a pre-eminent research-based university with 32,000 students pursuing over 450 programs 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.
