Events for Northern Ireland schools and colleges

Northern Ireland Applicant Day

If you are in receipt of an offer of a place or interview date we’ll send you an invitation to attend our annual Northern Ireland Applicant Day at the Belfast Hilton, which takes place in February each year. Successful applicants will receive a personal invitation to attend this event around December/January.

Hundreds of prospective students attend the Belfast Applicant Day, which is a great opportunity to chat directly to academic staff from applicants’ chosen Faculties, be involved in Q&A sessions, and get advice on student funding and accommodation, all without having to travel to Liverpool.

In addition, all successful applicants will receive an invitation to attend a regular departmental Applicant Day at LJMU.

Northern Ireland Teachers Conference at LJMU

Friday, 7 June 2019

Through our numerous outreach activities across Northern Ireland, future LJMU students hear all about this fantastic University, the broad-ranging and exciting programmes we offer, and what it means to live in the middle of the vibrant, cultural and student city of Liverpool.

We would like to offer NI teachers and careers advisors the opportunity to spend the day at LJMU, and see what makes us the No.1 university destination for NI students, choosing to study in HE outside of NI.

We are again offering to fund the cost of return flights to Liverpool, arrange for visitors to meet LJMU admissions and academic staff, catch up with current NI LJMU students, and hear from Student Advice & Wellbeing how we look after our NI students once they arrive.  It also provides an ideal opportunity to take a tour of some of our state-of-the art teaching facilities, and find out everything the city of Liverpool has to offer.

Our NI Teachers Conference will start early with a flight from Belfast International Airport at 8:25am – we want to make the most of every minute!   With flights taking only 30 minutes, delegates can return to Belfast at 8:40pm the same evening, or stay longer and enjoy the city over the weekend - it’s not a problem for us to book a later return flight.

Northern Ireland Residential

Summer residential: Wednesday 20 June - Friday 22 June 2018

This year we are once again inviting Year 13 students from Northern Ireland to attend a free residential visit, to coincide with the LJMU Open Day. The event will spread over three days and two nights.

During the residential visit, students will attend the University’s Open Day and take part in taster sessions for a selection of programmes. There will also be plenty of team building and social activities, including a treasure hunt to familiarise themselves with the city, as well as opportunities to engage with Student Advocates about student life. The event is funded by LJMU and is completely free for participants.

The Residential is aimed at students who are seriously considering applying to LJMU for 2019 entry and information provided in your application form should strongly support your wish to take part. Please tell us as much as you can about the reasons why you are interested in studying at LJMU and what you are hoping to gain from the event. You can treat it as a “dry run” of your UCAS Personal Statement!

This event is now closed for registration and shortlisting is taking place. If you missed the application deadline, why not consider our Summer Universities instead?

For further information email the Outreach Team:

The welcome talk from the LJMU students made me realise LJMU should definitely be my first choice of University.
