Liverpool John Moores University

Liverpool John Moores University is a distinctive institution, rooted in the Liverpool City Region but with a global presence, and over 27,000 students. Liverpool John Moores University’s (LJMU) vision is to be recognised as a “modern civic university delivering solutions to the challenges of the 21st century”. This holds true to our founding philosophy when in 1823 the Liverpool Mechanics’ Institute and College of Arts, LJMUs forerunner, committed to education “as a positive lever for lasting social change”. Research and knowledge exchange (RKE) is a core pillar of the University’s strategic framework and means we have a clear focus on the creation, dissemination and translation of new knowledge. This enables LJMU to make a difference, change lives and impact local, national and international partners. We have world-leading research across every part of the university, according to REF 2021, and an ambition to grow our research quality and impact. Underpinning our current impact is research and knowledge exchange which explores new boundaries and has an impact on the world around us. Our partnerships have enabled local, national and international collaborations which have both furthered our research and allowed us to implement new ideas in the real world. The work that we undertake is impactful and transformative in many different ways. Our collaborations will lead to changes in policy, health and well-being, social justice, economic benefit and job creation as well as keeping our educational offer at the cutting edge of knowledge.
