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.
Based in the Baltic Triangle
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.
Co-located with The Studio
Liverpool Life Sciences UTC and The Studio School are both based in the CUC building. We have a range of amazing facilities including lab spaces, a mock hospital suite, an engineering room, animal care centre and many fantastic learning spaces. As we are co-located with The Studio School we share a cinema, refectories, gym and sports hall. Students can select subjects from both schools and are taught together in Key Stage 4.
What is a UTC?
You can join a UTC 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.
