Student Recruitment and Admissions

Director: Carolyn Williams

Carolyn WilliamsWe are a professional team responsible for attracting students to study at the University. We represent the University and market our courses to potential students from across the globe at undergraduate, postgraduate and professional level.  

Many of our team spend their time out of the office, in schools, at HE fairs and open days, both at home and abroad, talking about all aspects of the University and answering questions about courses, modes of study, accommodation, the city, support services, money advice – you name it and we have answered the question. It is important that we are as knowledgeable as possible about the University because deciding where and what to study is one of the most important decisions in life – particularly if you are moving away from home, or even moving to a different country.

We also work with our Faculties to ensure that any potential applicant is able to come and visit the University either at one of our many open days or at more subject-focused applicant days; we are also responsible for ensuring the governance of the admissions process at LJMU.  

As a truly civic university one of our significant areas of activity is in raising aspiration amongst different communities who may not have family experience of higher education. We help our current students gain experience with volunteering work in the local community with the aim of demonstrating the value of a university education and the positive impact that our student body can have in the city.
