Advice for prospective students aged 21 and over
Helping you have a rich and full University experience
Returning to education may seem a challenging prospect, but the Outreach Team is committed to helping students who are 21+ have as rewarding an educational experience as our students who come straight from sixth form.
Outreach Team member, Carolyne Berry works with local further education colleges, particularly those taking alternative routes into higher education, delivering workshops including:
- Subject-specific student life talks
- How to succeed at university interviews and assessments
- Higher education masterclass
- Drop-in information, advice and guidance sessions
- Financial information
- UCAS application process
Come and meet us
LJMU hosts a number of campus drop-in coffee mornings and events throughout the year for students aged 21+. You will be able to speak to staff and students, discuss accommodation, receive expert funding advice and pick up tips for your UCAS application. These are family-friendly events and refreshments are provided.
