Networks and groups

Ways to stay connected

With groups in both the UK and fast-growing networks abroad, the University is building ever-stronger links between LJMU graduates across the globe

Alumni and staff run a range of networks and we welcome new groups: if you’re looking to reconnect or start a thriving LJMU alumni network get in touch with Alumni Relations. Groups can focus on a particular subject, area of interest, your shared history or your location; anything you feel would be a great way of helping you and your fellow alumni make connections and achieve success in the world.

You can also explore and connect with LJMU graduates through the University’s LinkedIn page, regularly updated with information and news for students and alumni.

Association of Past Students of IM Marsh College of Physical Education

The APS was established in 1915 as the Association of Past Students of Liverpool Physical Training College. The College was taken over by Lancashire Education Committee in 1947 and re-named IM Marsh College of Physical Education in honour of its founder Irene Mabel Marsh, and in 1949 the Association was reconstituted as the Association of Past Students of IM Marsh College of Physical Education.

The Association has over 367 members, holds a reunion annually on the first Saturday of October, publishes a yearly journal and has its own website. Any past students or staff interested in finding out more can visit the IM Marsh Past Students' website.

The Gambier Terrace Reunion Group

The Gambier Terrace Reunion Group was formed as a way for alumni who studied at the College of Art based at 11-12 Gambier Terrace to keep in touch. Students were located in Gambier Terrace between 1946 and 1966 as the growing college on Hope Street expanded. Established in 2003, the Gambier Terrace Group now holds a lunch club that meets every twelve weeks or so in the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool. For more information please contact the Gambier Terrace Group by emailing Carol Rigg on carolparigg@aol.com.
