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 Apprentice's Library. Now, it takes pride in being a modern, civic university that offers degrees that are informed by internationally-acclaimed research and centred around hands-on and practical learning.
The university is ranked within the global top 150 universities under 50 years of age (THE Young University Rankings 2019). Additionally, with a silver rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017, students can trust that the quality of teaching is at a very high level at LJMU.
Based in the world-famous city of Liverpool, the institution gives students the opportunity to make what the Times of London called ‘the coolest place 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.
With GBP 160 million invested over the last ten years, LJMU offers thousands of cutting-edge learning spaces and state-of-the-art facilities so that students can leave feeling ready for the world of work.
The university offers a number of services to support students in the pursuit of their dream job, including mock job interviews, CV and cover letter reviews, and an extensive calendar of employment events and career fairs.
