Liverpool International College

Part of Kaplan Inc., Liverpool International College (LIC) operates in partnership with the University of Liverpool to provide a pathway for international students to enter Undergraduate and Post Graduate degrees at the University of Liverpool.

LIC is a very special place, where each year over a period of around 9 months, we see students from over 30 countries develop and flourish academically as they prepare for university life.
