International student support

At Liverpool John Moores University, we have a dedicated International Student Advice team within Student Advice and Wellbeing Services.

The International Student Advisers can provide advice and information to international LJMU students (including students from Europe) on a wide range of issues relating to visas, immigration and rights in the UK including:

  • Study visas
  • Dependants – bringing your family to the UK
  • Working in the UK
  • Rights for European students after Brexit: the EU Settlement Scheme
  • General visa and immigration matters which may impact on your studies

The International Student Advisers offer information and advice to current LJMU students, applicants with an LJMU student number and recent LJMU graduates in line with the International Student Advice team, view our Conditions of Service.

Are you a new International Student or a continuing student coming to the UK for the first time? 

Come along to one of the International Advice Team’s 'Hello and Welcome' Webinars.

We will introduce you to the International Advice Team and tell you all about how we, and the wider Student Advice and Wellbeing Department, can support you during your time at LJMU.

We will also be providing you with practical information you may need to know as a new international student; such as opening a bank account, Police Registration and collecting your BRP.

There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions at the end of the session.

The sessions will run on the following days:

Wednesday 22 September at 2pm-3pm

Wednesday 29 September 2pm-3pm

Wednesday 6 October 2pm-3pm

Please email to book your place.

Personal support

Although we’re confident you’ll enjoy your time at LJMU, we know you may sometimes need additional support – especially if you feel homesick. That’s why during your time with us you can access support from our Student Wellbeing Advisers who are based in your Faculty. To find out more, see our Student Wellbeing team pages.

Check out the JMSU website where you'll find a range of societies and clubs, including the International Student Society which is particularly popular with international students. Joining this group will give you a chance to meet people from all over the world, learn about other cultures and explore Liverpool with some really friendly people.
