As a sponsor of North Liverpool Academy, the University of Liverpool is delighted to offer students who progress to the university from North Liverpool Academy, a scholarship. This scholarship is worth £3,000 and is available for each year of study at the University of Liverpool.


As a partner school to the University of Liverpool, North Liverpool Academy participates in the Scholars Programme. The University of Liverpool is committed to supporting talented students who wish to access higher education, regardless of their background. The Liverpool Scholars programme offers Year 12 students the chance to take part in a range of activities aimed at supporting their entry into higher education and preparing them for university, such as application guidance masterclasses, lectures and academic key skills workshops. These activities are delivered in partnership with academics, undergraduates and the wider university, culminating in scholars completing an academic assignment. Through the Liverpool Scholars Programme, we aim to nurture well informed, confident applicants who are well equipped for their university experience.

Benefits to students

After successfully completing the Scholars Programme, students will receive additional consideration when applying to study at the University of Liverpool. This is dependent on the student meeting all other admissions criteria (for example, interview performance, subject specific requirements and GCSE grades). This additional consideration will include:

  • A guaranteed conditional offer of a place at the University of Liverpool*
  • An offer reduced by up to 2 A level grades or equivalent.
