Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts

Liverpool | North West England

City

Ucas code: L48

The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts opened in 1996 to forge a new approach to performing arts training. It was co-founded by our lead patrons Sir Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty and is housed in his old school, which underwent a multi-million pound renovation to transform it into a state-of-the-art performing arts institution you'll see today.

      The library is well-stocked and diverse, but the content is strictly relevant to the courses taught. It would be better to have an introduction to all of the LRC systems, rather than just the most-used ones.

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.

More on what university league tables really tell you.

This institution doesn’t feature in any of the three main league tables, most likely because it’s small or specialist and there isn’t enough data to create a ranking. In a small number of cases some universities have opted out appearing in certain league tables.
