We can trace our roots back to 1823 and the establishment of the Liverpool Mechanics’ and Apprentices’ Library, however it was in 1992 that LJMU became one of the UK’s first modern universities. This meant that people from a wider range of backgrounds, ethnic minorities and other under-represented groups could access all the benefits that a university education can bring. And 26 years on, we are still working to make sure that LJMU’s doors are open to everyone with potential.
Today, we offer a university experience informed by our exceptional research and extensive industry links, which produces graduates who are socially engaged and entrepreneurial too. That’s why they are highly sought after by employers across the UK and around the world.
Our Foundation for Citizenship, led by Zia Chaudhry MBE, is focusing attention on key themes that bring our modern civic university ethos to the fore: giving back to the community, outreach in action, promoting wellbeing and diversity, championing public debate, culture for all, commitment to sustainability and encouraging active citizenship.
LJMU continues to grow and we would love for you to be part of our ambitious plans for the future – either as a student or member of staff.
