Liverpool John Moores University

United Kingdom
Overview

Overview

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has a rich cultural history and traces its roots all the way back to 1823 where it was initially the Liverpool Mechanics and Apprentices Library. Now, it takes pride in being a modern, civic university that offers degrees informed by internationally acclaimed research and centred around industry standard learning.

The university is ranked within the Global Top 100 Universities, under 50 years of age (THE Young University Rankings 2021).

Based in the world-famous city of Liverpool, LJMU gives students the opportunity to make what the Times of London called ‘one of the coolest places to live in the UK' their home. With a vibrant array of music, arts and culture on offer year-round in the city, there is lots for students to do outside of their lectures.

As such, LJMU offers an exceptional student experience, renowned for its high-quality teaching, innovation, student supportive structures and ground-breaking research, all within one of the world's most vibrant and multicultural cities.

With GBP 160 million invested over the last ten years, LJMU offers thousands of cutting-edge learning spaces and state-of-the-art facilities. This includes their newly built Student Life Building opened for 2021, located in the heart of Liverpool. Helping to give students ease of access to key student-facing services, as well as exceptional breakout and leisure spaces, this building encompasses the spirit of the institution and puts students at the heart of all that it does.

The university offers a number of services to support students in the pursuit of their dream career, including mock job interviews, CV and cover letter reviews, and an extensive calendar of employment events throughout the academic year.

Over 21,000 students from more than 100 different countries attend LJMU, providing a diverse and multicultural campus atmosphere. With over 250 different undergraduate and master's programmes on offer, there is no shortage of options.

  2. LJMU is launching a Climate Action Plan to set out crucial goals over the next 10 years in the fight against the climate crisis. In 2020, LJMU developed the UK's first bachelors degree in Climate Change and is committed to educating the next generation in finding sustainable solutions to the world's industrial challenges. As part of their pledge to encourage global change, LJMU's Screen School presented films to the UN's Climate Change Conference, COP26, discussing the catastrophic effects of rising sea levels on island communities.

Teaching quality

LJMU is the first university to receive two commended judgments by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).

The panel noted that the majority of LJMU students have excellent graduate prospects, successfully entering work or further study within 15 months of graduation (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2017/18), and there are high levels of student satisfaction for assessment and academic support.

This high standard of education is across the board, with 129 of the courses at Liverpool John Moores University being ranked in the top 50 in the Guardian University League Tables 2020.
