Liverpool John Moores University


It only takes the spark of an idea to create a truly transforming institution, and so it was in the early 1800s that men of power and influence converged upon Liverpool with their energy and enthusiasm for creating educational opportunities for the working people of the city.

They were the founding fathers of a movement that through the centuries has become Liverpool John Moores University.

Today, with a vibrant community of 25,000 students from over 100 countries world-wide, 2,500 staff and 250 degree courses, Liverpool John Moores University is one of the largest, most dynamic and forward-thinking universities in the UK.

As a modern, civic university, we are integral to the life of the city, but we are also global in our approach, forging international partnerships to facilitate world-leading research and collaboration to tackle some of the huge global issues facing the modern world.
