Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) stretches back to 1823, LJMU is now one of the largest and well-established universities in the UK. Within our five faculties, our research is influencing policymakers, improving people’s lives and finding solutions to the problems of the 21st century.

Top reasons to study here

  • Fantastic location - Liverpool attracts students from far and wide.
  • Learn beyond the lecture hall - You'll experience a different culture, gain skills, make new friends and enhance your CV.
  • Learn from the experts - 96% of our research is of international quality or better (Research Excellence Framework, 2014).


We can trace our roots back to the Industrial Revolution. In 1992, we became one of the UK’s new universities, taking our name from one of Liverpool’s great entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Sir John Moores. Our current incarnation as a modern civic university demonstrates that we haven’t lost the pioneering zeal of our founding fathers and like them, we still believe that ‘knowledge is power’.


Liverpool John Moores University has five faculties, each home to world-leading research, teaching and learning in a wide range of fields.

  • Faculty of Arts Professional and Social Studies

  • Faculty of Science

We have world-leading research across every part of our university, according to REF 2021, and an ambition to focus and grow our results in new areas.  Underpinning our approach is research and knowledge exchange which explores new boundaries and has an impact on the world around us.
