Virtual resources for students

Take a look at how LJMU outreach can support your school or college

The Outreach Team provides comprehensive support to schools and colleges at both pre- and post-16 education level. Our pages provide details of the full range of activities we offer on and off campus to different key stages. In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, we are here to still support prospective students and applicants, as well as teachers/careers advisers.

We have compiled a number of useful links to different websites to support you and we are creating new session content all the time. We are also happy to deliver live virtual events. For more information contact your account manager or email
