International Postgraduate Scholarships
Commonwealth Shared Scholarship
Established: 2005Two of the university's founding colleges, S. Katharine's (1844) and Notre Dame (1856) were established in the 19th century. These colleges were in Warrington and Liverpool City Centre respectively. These were among the first to provide opportunities for higher education to women. They were supplemented on Merseyside when a second Catholic teacher education college, Christ's College, on a site adjacent to St. Katharine's, admitted its first students in 1964. (Christ's was the first Catholic co-educational teachers' training college in England.) In 1980, these three colleges joined in an ecumenical federation under the holding title of Liverpool Institute of Higher Education (LIHE). Archbishop Derek Worlock and Bishop David Sheppard wrote of this as being "a sign of hope".
