Exchange study at LJMU

Studying at LJMU as a partnership exchange student

If you have been nominated by your home institution for an Erasmus+ exchange you may want to consider Liverpool John Moores University. LJMU is a popular destination for European students because of our excellent reputation for academic quality, world-leading research, modern facilities, and passionate and supportive staff. Of course, we can’t ignore one of the main draws to our University – the city of Liverpool itself. With our four faculties spread across several campuses throughout the city centre (and beyond) and many cultural ties to the city, our status in Liverpool is second to none.

We’re sure you’ll enjoy your time here but why not find out for yourself what we have to offer? Take a look at our Student Experience pages to find out about our campuses, sports and societies, benefits and opportunities, and everything else that sums up what it’s like to be a student here. You can also find out what it’s like to live in Liverpool. See our Discover Liverpool section to find out about Liverpool’s culture, sport, events, history and more.

English language support

To find out the level of English you will need in order to study with us, our International Study Centre provides you with useful information including courses you can take to upgrade your English.

Student accommodation

Liverpool has a wide range of student accommodation available. LJMU does not own any student accommodation itself and instead we work in partnership with a number of trusted and reputable private providers.
