22nd January 2021
The University of Liverpool has decided to close their London campus after the 2019/20 academic year.
The campus, based in Finsbury Square, has offered post-graduate courses since 2013 and was the first non-London based Russel Group university to open a campus in the capital.
On the decision, Gavin Brown, Executive Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education at the University of Liverpool, stated that the decision was made in order to focus investment on developing the main Liverpool campus and new, globally accessible online programmes, which correspond with the university’s civic mission to “achieve positive economic and social change”.
Students who applied for programmes for 2020 entry should have already been directly contacted by the university.
Despite the closure, Brown made sure to express that the current enrolled students would continue to have the best learning experience possible, saying that they would, “leave us as highly-skilled, commercially aware, workforce-ready graduates”.
