International Relations team

Director: Dr Julia Wang

The International Relations team leads on the university-wide internationalisation activity at LJMU. The team identifies and develops international collaborative and strategic partnerships, represents the university overseas, provides guidance to and attracts international students to study at the university, delivers student mobility (inbound and outbound), and facilitates the University’s international summer school.

The team works closely with internal and external partners and stakeholders including the Associate Deans for Global Engagement, who deliver the international aspirations of each Faculty and International Mobility Coordinators (IMC’s) who coordinate mobility opportunities within each academic school.

The university is passionate about developing its international presence through partnership with like-minded institutions across the world. We welcome international students who choose to study an LJMU programme either in Liverpool or with one of our overseas partner institutions. We aim to provide an enriching international experience to our students through international opportunities embedded in the curriculum, opportunities for semester and year-long study overseas, short term international study, volunteering and work experience placements. Over half of the university’s research publications are co-authored with institutions outside the UK and we are proud to have a staff and student body which represents more than 100 countries across the world.

International Relations is also leading on the implementation of the International Plan 2023-2030, which reframes the university’s international ambitions to align with its priorities in delivering university Strategy 2030.
