    It’s safe to say the city belongs to the students, and it’s the perfect place to meet new people and enjoy the rich and vibrant culture. And the fact that many local businesses also support the thriving student culture, and offer appropriate discounts, just makes things even better.

    Liverpool is lavished with many inexpensive shops, bars and restaurants for you to take advantage of. The city’s compact nature means that there’s an abundance of affordable outlets all within walking distance of each other. From vintage shops, to low cost retail stores, which supply all your everyday essentials – there’s plenty of places to bag a bargain with special student offers.


    A unique nightlife

    As a student, the nightlife of the place you’re studying in should be a highlight of your overall experience. A strong student-friendly nightlife can help bring people together to have fun, network, and give you that well earned break from your studies.  

    Luckily with Liverpool, this is exactly the case. The city’s nightlife is so richly diverse and varied that a night out can be tailored to suit your preferences. Whether you’re into big super clubs or quirky cocktail bars, there’s truly something for everyone. Liverpool’s vibrant city centre caters to all tastes, and beyond that you can party from Lark Lane to the Baltic Triangle, enjoying student discounts in some of the best night spots in the UK.

    Back in 2008, Liverpool was awarded the European Capital of Culture title, and to this day the city’s culture continues to thrive, with many institutions offering a slice of its intriguing heritage. You can visit places like the the World Museum, or the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, which is the birthplace of one of the biggest bands in the world, The Beatles ofcourse!

    Thanks to a thriving fringe scene, with plenty of live music venues, theatres and bars, there’s always something to see. It’s also bursting with an abundance of architecturally iconic buildings, including The Liver Buildings, Tate Liverpool, the Everyman Playhouse, and more.
