Education in Liverpool is a life-changing experience. Liverpool has a total of 54,565 full and part-time students, flocking to the city for the world-class research, the strong links to industry, the excellent facilities and the city’s vibrant social life. Students ideally like to be located within a short walk from their university, especially when they first start. This means they don’t have to worry about using public transport or navigating around a city they aren’t entirely familiar with.
In addition to the thousands of students around the city, some graduates look for accommodation too. Liverpool has a high graduate retention rate, which means that students stay in the city after their studies finish. This is an ideal target market for any property as they will be young and wanting a place close to the city.
