Gain further knowledge about transitioning to University by registering for our live webinars
Welcome to this special page dedicated to all school/colleges leavers in Year 13 (Year 14 in NI). Due to the ongoing Covid situation and missing out on face to face contact, LJMU Outreach team is running a selection of webinars for current applicants to gain further knowledge about transitioning to University, and to ask questions to key departments.
Each Wednesday there is a special ‘Ask a Student Webinar’ with different themes for our current offer holders to relay their questions to current LJMU students. These include Accommodation, Managing workload, Student Union and Finance/ Budgeting.
