Events and visiting LJMU

We normally hold a range of postgraduate events throughout the year. Whilst current restrictions are in place we have been offering these activities virtually. You can view campus tours, listen to subject talks from academics, find out more about student finance and much more at our live and on demand events. We look forward to welcoming visitors on campus again as soon as it is safe to do so.

Teaching in September 2021

We hope that teaching will be mainly face to face, on campus, though we will continue to follow government guidance relating to this. Many students have enjoyed aspects of the online learning experience and expressed that they would like to continue some of their learning in this way, even when government restrictions are lifted. We have taken this feedback on board and are considering offering a small amount of online teaching as part of courses where this is appropriate and enhances the student learning experience. This would be alongside traditional face to face teaching on campus, including lectures, seminars and group work. Find out more about the positive student experience of online learning in our short video and article.
