About Liverpool John Moores University and Scholarship

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), situated in the vibrant city of Liverpool, England, has evolved from the Liverpool Mechanics’ School of Arts, established in 1823. The university’s roots trace back to the merger of educational institutions, culminating in the formation of Liverpool Polytechnic. In 1992, an Act of Parliament transformed Liverpool Polytechnic into the esteemed institution known today as Liverpool John Moores University. The university bears the name of Sir John Moores, a local philanthropist whose generous contributions benefited the precursor institutions.

With a diverse student body, LJMU boasted 25,050 students in the 2019/20 academic year, including 20,105 undergraduates and 4,945 postgraduates, ranking as the 30th largest university in the UK by total student population.


LJMU has gained prominence for its excellence in teaching and research, particularly in Sports and Exercise Sciences. The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) acknowledged LJMU’s achievements by awarding £4.5 million over five years for the establishment of a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). This accolade reflects LJMU’s outstanding contributions to Physical Education, Dance, Sport, and Exercise Sciences. Notably, LJMU is the sole UK university to receive an Ofsted Grade A in Physical Education, solidifying its position as a premier institution for both teaching and research in Sport and Exercise Sciences.

Recognized as a rising star in global academia, LJMU secured a place in the 2013 Times Higher Education 100 under 50, ranking 72 out of 100. The university’s commitment to academic and professional success is evident in the First Destination Survey results, revealing that 89% of LJMU graduates secure employment or pursue postgraduate study within six months of graduating.

In the realm of research, LJMU has demonstrated strengths in general engineering and sports-related sciences. Notably, the university emerged as the top-performing post-92 institution in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) for Anthropology, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, General Engineering, Physics (Astrophysics), and Sports-Related Studies. The UK Research Assessment Exercise 2014 (RAE 2014) further affirmed LJMU’s research excellence, with every unit of assessment submitted receiving a rating of at least 45% internationally excellent or better.

LJMU extends a warm welcome to ambitious students worldwide, encouraging them to embark on their academic journey at the university. To support this vision, LJMU is delighted to offer eligible applicants a £3,000 tuition fee discount for each year of their studies, facilitating access to high-quality education and fostering a global community of learners.
