Liverpool John Moores University

It is an ethos we characterise in the simple words – dream, plan, achieve – from a statement made by our namesake Sir John Moores, the founder of the Littlewoods empire and a beacon of equal opportunities in Liverpool, “...if you want to enough, you can achieve anything”. Today, with a vibrant community of 25,000 students from over 100 countries world-wide, 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.
