Frequently asked questions

Got a question about our Open Days? You might find the answer below:

What will I do at my Open Day?

Our Open Days have been designed for you. Not only will you get to experience the vibrant, exciting environment you’ll be studying in, you’ll also be able to chat to lecturers, go on a tour of Liverpool and get the inside scoop from some of our current students about what being a student here is really like.

  • Attend your course subject talk and tour 
  • Go on a tour of your accommodation 
  • Get hold of some brilliant subject guides 
  • Explore our fantastic libraries 
  • Meet current students
  • Get the financial advice you need at special talks from funding experts

Where do I need to go?

This depends on the subject you would like to study. The exact location details of each course session will be listed in the Open Day Planner, which you can find above.


Can I bring friends/family with me?

Friends and family are more than welcome to come along. However, talks can get very busy and space can be limited. Certain tours also require some walking, which small children or elderly relatives may find difficult, though in most cases a free shuttle bus will be able to transport you.

What about getting there and parking?

Liverpool is easy to reach by road, rail, air and boat. If you’d prefer to drive, the city has plenty of on-street and multi-storey car parking options for you to choose from.

We are a city-based university split over three campuses. As we are located at the heart of Liverpool city centre, we are unfortunately unable to provide free parking during the Open Day events. However, there is plenty of on-street and NCP car parking available.

More information about travelling to your Open Day.

I don't know what subject I would like to study. What should I do?

If you are undecided about the subject you would like to study, or if you’re interested in several different subjects, you may wish to have a chat with staff in one of our ‘Marketplace’ areas. Details will be included in the Open Day Planner, which you can find above.

See our Choosing what to study section for helpful advice.

Do I need to register?

It is important that you sign in on arrival, as doing so confirms your attendance. Our registration points will be listed in the Open Day Planner, which you can find above. At these registration points, staff and students will be on hand to provide information and directions and will help you get the most out of your visit. A free bus service will also be available to transport you between campuses, allowing you to attend different subject talks and tours.

If for whatever reason you are not able to register for an Open Day prior to arriving, this is not a problem and you are still welcome to attend. Simply head to a registration point and our staff will be able to sign you in on the day.

The Open Day runs from 9.00am - 3.30pm. Will I need to stay all day?

An Open Day is an event just for you, which is why we think you should be able to plan your own itinerary based around the programme of activities that will be running throughout the day. Please check your Open Day Planner for specific details so that you can attend the talks and tours you feel are most relevant to you. There will be plenty to do during the Open Day. However, if you can only make one or two talks, or you simply want to see our student accommodation, the choice is yours.

Will I be able to see any student accommodation?

Student accommodation will be open and available to view from 9.00am – 3.30pm. Simply pick up a walking tour map from any of the information or registration points found on our three campuses. You can visit as many accommodation buildings as you want. On arrival staff will greet you and show you around. If you would like some advice on where might be most suited to your accommodation needs, visit the Accommodation Team in the Marketplace (see the Planner for details).

What will happen if I am late and miss my talk/tour?

Late arrivals aren't a problem. You may miss your specific talk or tour, but staff will be available all day (9:00am – 3:30pm) in the Marketplace (see the Planner for details). You will be able to chat to staff and students about the full range of courses on offer.

What should I do if I can't attend the Open Day?

If you can’t attend the Open Day, don’t worry. Alternative Open Day dates might be available (see the dates listed on this page).

We also offer regular campus tours, which last for approximately one to two hours. On the tour, you’ll be shown the general facilities of the campus, an example of student accommodation and one of our libraries.

If you decide to make an application to Liverpool John Moores University, you will be able to log into your Applicant area and book on to an Applicant Day once you have received an offer from us.

Where can I get a cup of coffee or some lunch?

Refreshments will be available in various locations, from Liverpool John Moores University cafés to our on-site Starbucks. Please ask a staff member or student helper on the day to assist you with directions. If you would like to try somewhere else on your way to a faculty building or perhaps on a self-guided walk to view accommodation, there are plenty of excellent options in Liverpool.

What else is there to do in Liverpool?

There are plenty of things to see and do during your visit to Liverpool.

You can head to the Albert Dock, check out Tate Liverpool or explore one of Liverpool’s many museums. Or why not spend your afternoon shopping?

Take a look at Visit Liverpool if you’re stuck for ideas or take a City Tour as part of your Open Day event. Details for the City Tour trips can be found in your Open Day Planner.
