Liverpool waterfront


Welcome home

Liverpool: a great place to live, a great place to study.

At Liverpool John Moores University we might search into the furthest reaches of space and question the nature of the sub-atomic soup of particles that surrounds us – but when it comes to matters closer to us we’re sure of one thing: Liverpool is where YOU want to be.

Why Liverpool?

We make our home in what The Times of London described as ‘the coolest place to live in the UK’ and we can’t wait to welcome you. Sure, you will enjoy a student experience at LJMU that encompasses the academic excellence offered by high quality teaching, ground-breaking research and extensive links with employers and business leaders; but we are also confident you will benefit from the best this multi-cultural city has to offer.

Safe, friendly and affordable, Liverpool takes its place in the zeitgeist as one of the best places to study in Europe. The city is a former European Capital of Culture and was named as one of ‘the top ten cities to visit in the world’ by travel guide gurus ‘Rough Guides’.

With more theatres and museums than any other UK city outside London, Liverpool stands apart from the rest of the British Isles as its own catalyst, bursting at the seams with venues, festivals and events celebrating all things cultural.
