Liverpool John Moores University


Recommended Posts

In 1823 a small institution was founded to revolutionize education in Liverpool and provide opportunities for the working people of the city. 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. Together, these organizations 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 25,000 students from over 100 countries worldwide, 2,500 staff, and 250-degree courses, Liverpool John Moores University is one of the largest, most dynamic and forward-thinking universities in the UK. As a modern civic university, we are integral to the life of the city. However, we are also global in our approach, forging international partnerships to facilitate world-leading research and collaboration to tackle some of the massive global issues facing the modern world that have an everyday impact.
As an institution, we are unashamedly ambitious – for our students, our staff, and the broader global community. Under the leadership of our Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor Nigel Weatherill, we are undergoing a renaissance as the strength of our teaching and research continues to exceed even our high expectations. We were one of the highest climbers nationally in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, which assesses the UK's quality of research. We are on an upward trajectory in the first UK league tables. Our student satisfaction scores increase year on year. All of this helps build on our solid reputation for providing students with the highest quality teaching and a learning experience informed by relevant, credible, and world-leading research.
We acknowledge and celebrate our successes and achievements, but we never rest on our laurels. Continuing to improve and enhance the experience and opportunities offered to our students is the driving force for the whole University – our pioneering work in improving graduate prospects, our innovative approach to cultural partnerships, and our evolving student-focused campus are setting benchmarks for the essence of university life in the 21st century. We have an open and enthusiastic academic community operating in world-class facilities. Diversity is a valued endeavor that is supported, and achievement is celebrated.
We will continue to provide our students with an exceptional experience and encourage our staff to push the boundaries of their professional and academic disciplines so that we can thrive in a world of endless possibilities and potential. We are an ambitious and forward-thinking institution that challenges convention and believes passionately in the concept of ‘One University’ – a community working together to achieve common student-centered objectives within a clear strategy. To be recognized as a modern civic university delivering solutions to the challenges of the 21st century. We believe in the power of education to drive transformation across social, cultural, and economic boundaries. We are innovative and progressive with an entrepreneurial spirit. We think creatively about new ways to do things. We strive for the highest standards in everything we do. We believe that by working together in partnership, we can achieve excellent and lasting results. We believe in leading the way, challenging convention, and breaking new ground.
