How to apply

Application information for exchange and study abroad students

Before you can apply to LJMU you must be approved by your home institution and they need to notify us of your nomination. We will then send you a link to our online application form. Please note that our incoming exchange application and registration process is electronic only, and you will not need to send us any documents by post. However, we will send you automated information and requests during the application/registration process to the email address you use for your application.

Please note that you will only enrol on modules, receive your timetable and get your student card once you arrive in Liverpool for orientation.
