Applicant Days at Liverpool John Moores University

Your Applicant Day visiting the Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on receiving an offer of a place to study with us on one of our undergraduate programmes.  You may already have visited us at one of our Open Days.  Our Applicant Days will help you gain as much information as possible about the course, the academics who may be teaching you, the university, our facilities and the surrounding area. We realise how important it is for you to visit us on campus before you make your final decisions about where and what to study. We are confident that after spending a day with us, speaking to potential course tutors, and having a more specialised visit of our modern, state of the art facilities, you will make the right decision.

You will be invited to attend an Applicant Day, with information on how to register.  If you have received an offer, but not yet registered you can do so here. We do limit attendance to one visitor per applicant, but if you would like to bring more than one guest with you, please contact us in advance of the event to ensure we can accommodate this.

If you have applied to a programme which interviews as part of the selection process, you will not be invited to attend an Applicant Day. If you would like to visit the university after you attend interview, we offer Campus Tours, which give you the opportunity to view the facilities and student accommodation.

The Faculty comprises five schools:

Liverpool School of Art and Design

Liverpool Business School

Liverpool Screen School

School of Humanities and Social Science

School of Law

‘What to expect’ from our Applicant Days

Our Applicant Days are tailored for each school in the Faculty so will differ slightly, to ensure you receive the information.  However, if you do attend an Applicant Day you can expect:

  • LJMU welcome talk, which will include information on funding, welfare and student accommodation.
  • Subject specific information session. This varies by programme, but may include a programme talk, taster session provided by one of our Student Advocates, Demonstration or Workshop.
  • Opportunity to chat with current students studying your programme of interest, about the course and what it is like to be a student at LJMU and in the city of Liverpool.
  • You will meet with other prospective students, so may even form friendships with future classmates, before the course has even begun!
  • Accommodation, for those moving away from home, will be available to view, and the city has an excellent range of student accommodation on offer.
  • Complimentary lunch

For more detailed information on what to expect, please click on the Applicant Day itinerary (below) relevant for your programme of interest. Please note itineraries are subject to change, and you will be emailed the final itinerary when your register.

If you have applied to more than one programme in the Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies, and are unsure of which event to attend or would simply like to find out more about our Applicant Days, please contact our Faculty Admissions Team at apsadmissions@ljmu.ac.uk or phone us on 0151 231 5175.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our Applicant Days, and welcoming you to our university.

What if I cannot attend an Applicant Day?

Please do not worry if you are unable to attend.  Your attendance at these events does not affect your application. You may have already attended one of our Open Days, and received all the information you need to make your final decisions.  If you have not already visited us, but would like to do so, we offer several Campus Tours.
