LIPA is housed in two meticulously restored Grade II-listed buildings in Liverpool's Georgian Quarter. Transformed into a performing arts institute, it occupies an enviable site on the edge of the city centre, and many of our facilities are considered world class.

Our students

LIPA attracts highly talented students. They are not just from the UK, but from many overseas countries too. Around a third of our undergraduates are international students. ​We encourage collaboration between disciplines. Student designers, managers, technicians and performers gain insights into each others' roles and so deepen their understanding of the performing arts industry. Working at LIPA offers you the opportunity to influence their growth and guide their talent. Why not be a part of it.

​Relocating To Liverpool

From the historic waterfront, to its Georgian squares and downtown nightlife, Liverpool is more than just a city with a long history , and larger than life reputation​.​​ The new Liverpool is a melting pot of culture, ideas, entertainment, energy and attitude. Buoyed by its European Capital of Culture success, the city is fast becoming the creative capital of the North.

Liverpool is synonymous with music and football and is, according to the 'Guinness Book of Records', ​​The World Capital of Pop Music. This rich tradition of popular music is played out across the city in a variety of music venues, where local and national upcoming musicians showcase their talent. The new Echo Arena at the Albert Dock plays host to established headliners and high profile music events such as the MTV European Music Awards.

All tastes are catered for in the cultural mix that is Liverpool. For classical aficionados the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic is a must and the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology and Tate Liverpool offer a national and international menu of visual arts.​ ​

Liverpool's impressive theatre portfolio includes the Everyman and Playhouse theatres, The Unity Theatre, The Royal Court, the more commercial Empire Theatre and a vibrant community of independent production companies. This is all set amongst the exciting architectural developments enveloping Liverpool, including Liverpool One with 42 acres of shopping, dining and socialising.

Liverpool is a fantastic place to live and work, offering compact city centre living or green suburban tranquillity. The city offers easy access to some of Britain’s most stunning landscapes and with Liverpool John Lennon Airport, low price access to some of Europe’s top cities.

LIPA and Liverpool are growing and we’d like you to be part of that growth too.
