      Political scene

      When it comes to Ireland Liverpool have it down pat, the union and the university are both well balanced and politically active, the union can sometimes be too busy trying to be cool and the university too busy trying to be objective to act as much as you would want these 'progressive' bodies to do but when they do then you can join the protests among the student body and the city at large which are INCREDIBLE we occupied the Irish studies building last year

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
