    About LJMU

    ljmulogo
    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. This small, pioneering movement was followed by the establishment of the Liverpool Institute and School of Art and the Liverpool Nautical College, 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 world-wide, 2,400 staff and 250 degree courses, Liverpool John Moores University is one of the largest, most dynamic and forward-thinking universities in the UK.

      Additional Information

      Westford Mentorship Program

      A bachelor’s degree is increasingly the norm. This means, that students are determined to equip themselves with a repertoire of skills that will set them apart in today’s competitive work environment. The pressure to become well-rounded graduates with grades, soft skills, and technical knowledge is driving students to seek personal and professional development outside the classroom. Corollary to it, most organizations nowadays consider that abilities like communication, organization, and commercial awareness are just as, if not more, vital than specific technical or academic knowledge and skills connected with graduate’s certification. The Westford Mentorship Program bridges the gap between academia and the workforce by providing students with an opportunity to engage with experts in their field of interest, ask insightful questions, and enhance their career exploration. In turn, Westford Alumni can reconnect with the Westford Community and share their expertise and knowledge with the next generation of innovators, movers, and shakers. It all equates in giving back to the society by having a positive influence in the lives of young people, especially those who are looking for meaningful professions.
      Thanks!
