Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) can trace its roots back to 1823 and the foundation of Liverpool Mechanics' Institute and Apprentices' Library. We've come a long way since then, becoming a university in 1992 and we are now ranked in the top 600 universities in the world.1
Throughout our history we have championed education for all; from our earliest students in the nineteenth century through to today's skilled graduates, who are driving forward twenty-first century innovations and economic success, both in the UK and overseas.
We take our name from one of the UK's most successful businessmen, Sir John Moores, who turned his love of football into a business empire that was worth millions. Born into a working class family, he proved that, with vision and hard work, anyone can achieve success.
So if you have talent and are willing to work hard and grasp every opportunity that comes your way, we are the University that can help you achieve your ambitions.

University seems to have a keen interest in student welfare. Very good support systems in place and a focus on making sure students are coping, not just about grades. Amazing social life, best, local and cheap nightlife. Interesting modules with great lecturers.

Student Life in Liverpool
At LJMU we might search into the furthest reaches of space, and question the nature of the sub-atomic soup of particles that surrounds us - but when it comes to matters close to us we're sure of one thing:
We're proud to be made in Liverpool. And we'd love to welcome you to our city.
With more galleries that any other city outside London, an unrivalled nightlife scene and a vibrant, year-round calendar of events, Liverpool has big city buzz and a small city warmth.
One of Europe's most free-spirited, dynamic and cultured cities, things are happening here. And they're happening fast. With a cosmopolitan student population drawn to LJMU's impressive reputation for world-class research, matched with our fantastic range of facilities, Liverpool is a welcoming, multicultural and thrilling place to study.
To become a student here is to become part of a vibrant and enterprising city, full of fun and personality.
The city is divided into areas, each with their own unique character and social scene, from Ropewalks with its indie shops and clubs and bars to the Georgian Quarter with the imposing Anglican Cathedral or the city centre with its award-winning Liverpool One shopping district to the Baltic Triangle, with its hip bars and bistros.
Liverpool really is the perfect 24-hour student city. This former European Capital of Culture has something for everyone and we can't wait to welcome you here so you can start enjoying all that it has to offer.
Liverpool is easily accessible by train from all major cities in the UK, the journey from London will take just over two hours. Once in Liverpool, the Merseyrail train network has good links to other parts of the city region. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is only seven miles from the city centre and Manchester Airport is just a 45 minute drive. Liverpool city region is well-connected to the UK motorway network.
