Welcome message – EAIE delegates

Liverpool IFB 2016

Liverpool John Moores University today warmly welcomes delegates of the European Association for International Education (EAIE) Conference 2016, to the city of Liverpool.

As one of four universities in Liverpool, your experience here will be as vibrant and diverse as the thousands of students who choose this city for their higher education journey.

The diverse community of people you will encounter here is reflective of Liverpool’s international outlook and history. It is a thriving port city and gateway to trade and travel for thousands.

And it is no better time to visit as Liverpool hosts its Biennial Festival of Contemporary Art with hundreds of galleries, art spaces and public venues, from the Tate to our own Exhibition Research Lab, displaying unique installations and exhibitions which explore fictions, stories and histories that draw on Liverpool’s past, present and future.

We hope you will use any spare time you have to soak up the sights and see for yourself why the city is globally recognised on screen as the location most used in the UK for iconic productions such as Captain America and Sherlock Holmes.

We also look forward to welcoming some of you to our campus at Liverpool John Moores University on Tuesday, where you will discover how this modern civic university and the range of opportunities for dialogue and exchange, can give your students the opportunity to interact, innovate and gain a truly international experience.

And it is a timely moment for you to visit Liverpool as our Vice Chancellor, Nigel Weatherill and Chancellor, Sir Brian Leveson have just returned from visiting China and Malaysia. The visit will help further our links with existing international partners to bolster our already strong, global research and scholarship partnerships to benefit the city and our students alike.

Find out about our events and activities during the Conference.


Congratulations to our graduates in Dubai!
