      About Liverpool John Moores University, UK

      The Liverpool Mechanics Institute was founded by people of power and influence who recognized the transformative effects of education and the impact that learning and aspiration could have on individuals, communities, and society. It was the first such institution to be founded in England. The establishment of the Liverpool Institute and School of Art and the Liverpool Nautical College followed this small, pioneering movement, and in 1900 Irene Mabel Marsh opened the IM Marsh campus. These organizations together laid the foundations for Liverpool John Moores University, an institution that has grown and flourished and continues to provide opportunities for all. Today, with a vibrant community of over 23,000 students from over 100 countries worldwide, 2,400 staff and 250-degree courses, Liverpool John Moore’s University are one of the largest, most dynamic, and forward-thinking universities in the UK.
