About the institution

Liverpool John Moores (LJMU) has three campuses: City campus and Mount Pleasant, both based in the city centre, and IM Marsh, four miles south of the city centre. The Students’ Union has branches at all three campuses but the main base can be found on the Mount Pleasant campus. All of its degrees include work-related learning; for example midwifery students have access to the university’s birthing simulator and engineering students can help build a racing car with LJMU’s Formula Student team.
