Go Global

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and travel restrictions, The Go Global Scheme will not be running for the 20/21 academic year.

LJMU’s Go Global fund aims to help you to increase your cultural awareness and build your confidence, all while making a positive difference to the world. Who knows, you might even pick up some of the lingo wherever you go.

The LJMU Go Global Fund allows you to undertake an international activity or project anywhere in the world. From community outreach in Cape Town to Jaguar conservation in Costa Rica, do it yourself and create your own experience.

Jack, an LJMU Outdoor Education student, went caving in North America after researching rope-rigging techniques during his final year. This is what he has to say about his Go Global adventure:

"I never dreamed the university would ever give me this opportunity, so when I got the email to say I had been accepted I was extremely happy!"
