Welcome to Liverpool
LJMU is a vibrant university located at the heart of one of the UK’s most exciting cities. Awarded the European Capital of Culture 2008 in recognition of its rich history and cultural standing, Liverpool continues to go from strength to strength.
With world class architecture and more listed buildings than any city outside London, Liverpool was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2004. These inspiring surroundings are juxtaposed with Liverpool’s visible investment in an exciting future, as new developments and award winning structures reshape the city’s skyline.
Investment in Liverpool continues to be supported and encouraged, with schemes such as ‘Liverpool vision’ helping to create a world class city for businesses and providing plenty of opportunities for the city to thrive. This focus on business and regeneration seems to be attracting more students than ever to Liverpool and we increasingly find that our students continue to live and work in the city after graduation… once you come to Liverpool, you’ll find it hard to leave.
