We’re the first school in the UK to specialise in science and health care for students aged 14 – 19. Liverpool Life Sciences University Technical College (UTC) combines outstanding academic education with specialist vocational qualifications, to prepare our students for the world of work.
Nestled in the heart of Liverpool’s creative and digital hub, the Baltic Triangle, Liverpool Life Sciences has a strong focus on project-based learning – which taps into the flourishing businesses on our doorstep, giving our students an invaluable insight into the modern-day world of work. Our placements put our students to work in some of the north west’s award-winning science and healthcare facilities. And, our masterclasses expose students to industry partners, consultants and practitioners.
You can join us at either 14 or 16. Modern, professional and progressive, UTCs offer a unique educational experience; partnering with local businesses and universities to provide specialised training, alongside teaching the traditional curriculum. Established in 2010, UTCs have revolutionised education in the UK, allowing students to combine traditional GCSEs and A-Levels with specialist vocational qualifications such as BTECs. At Liverpool Life Sciences UTC we’re educating and nurturing the next generation of scientists, healthcare practitioners, engineers and entrepreneurs.
Our ethos is simple: we’re committed to providing the highest standards of teaching and learning, combined with real life industry experience which opens doors for our students. Our offer is unique, and we’re proud to work with some of the world-leaders in science and healthcare, giving our students the ability to build a strong and enviable portfolio of experience, so they can hit the ground running once they graduate from our UTC.
With seminar rooms, breakout spaces, science labs, and engineering facilities, we’ve got a lot of scope for experimentation. Take a closer look at some of the facilities we have on offer here at the UTC.
