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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lightning Lunch Sessions 19 April until 21 May
Join LJMU for a series of lunchtime insights on current courses at Liverpool John Moores University. Each session is under 30 minutes and will focus on current discussions relating to the curriculum and new discoveries on the subject. Starting at either 12pm or 12:30pm, these short course insights will develop your understanding of university level study around your subject of choice.
We will be hosting live events throughout the year. Click on the virtual events drop down for more information. If you miss a session we will be putting them on our new Outreach on Demand dropdown, so students and staff can access them anytime.
Teachers/careers advisers may also be interested in our dedicated support page full of useful web links to support your students.
