What's going on in Liverpool in 2022?
Being a student in the UK’s most exciting city means you get access to a range of events happening right on your doorstep. So, what is coming up in the next six months in our city and at LJMU?
Volunteering, Summer Opportunities and Go Global Fair – Student Life Building
9 February, 12-3PM
Summer has arrived early at LJMU. Join our LJMU Student Futures team and JMSU as they host our Volunteering and Summer Opportunities Fair. There’ll be Liverpool, UK and Go Global opportunities with organisations and businesses exhibiting at the event. Complete with a summer theme, there’ll also be free food, games and an ice cream van! A great chance to meet and chat to employers across a variety of sectors, the fair is not one to be missed!
The Batman is released
The Batman hits our screens on 4 March but some of the locations might seem strikingly familiar! That’s because Liverpool was chosen as a backdrop for Gotham City. This isn’t the first time Liverpool has been used on the big screen, Captain America, Peaky Blinders and even Harry Potter have all used our city as a filming location. Look out for St George’s Hall and other gothic landmarks being used.
Grad Fair – Student Life Building
Our Student Futures and JMSU will be holding our annual Grad Fair for those in their final year of undergraduate or postgraduate degrees. With over 80 exhibitors attending the event, it’s a great opportunity to speak to employers and graduate schemes about what they are looking for and how to make yourself stand out from the crowd.
