Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) can trace its roots back to 1823 and the foundation of Liverpool Mechanics’ and Apprentices’ Library. We’ve come a long way since then, becoming a university in 1992 and we are now now ranked 49th in The Times Higher Education best universities in the UK rankings 2020.
Throughout our history we have championed education for all; from our earliest students in the nineteenth century through to today’s skilled graduates, who are driving forward twenty-first century innovations and economic success, both in the UK and overseas.
We take our name from one of the UK’s most successful businessmen, Sir John Moores, who turned his love of football into a business empire that was worth millions. Born into a working class family, he proved that, with vision and hard work, anyone can achieve success.
So if you have talent and are willing to work hard and grasp every opportunity that comes your way, we are the University that can help you achieve your ambitions.
