Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) is one of the largest universities in the UK located in the heart of the thriving and vibrant city of Liverpool. Originally founded as a small mechanics institution (Liverpool Mechanics' School of Arts) in 1825, the institution grew over the centuries by converging and amalgamating with different colleges and eventually became the Liverpool Polytechnic.
In 1992, the Polytechnic became one of the UK's new generation universities and assumed the name Liverpool John Moores University. The University took its name from Sir John Moores, the founder of the Littlewoods empire, which has been synonymous with Liverpool since it began in 1923. Sir John was a great believer in the creation of opportunity for all which embodies the ethos of LJMU in providing educational routes for people of all ages and from all backgrounds. A holistic approach is promoted whereby each student is guaranteed the best quality programmes of study, informed by scholarship and research, within a supportive environment conducive to personal development and providing the ideal conditions for study.
LJMU, as a modern university, has been awarded significantly more research funding than many other new universities due to the strong Research Assessment Exercise ratings. This is achieved through academic excellence that is rooted in the real world. The expertise and professionalism contained within the university has been widely recognised by the business community. Businesses have been quick to recognise the benefits of a relationship with LJMU and have taken advantage of the services offered - from consultancy to professional training.
The School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, within LJMU, now supports over 1000 students engaged in various modes of study at postgraduate, undergraduate and diploma levels. The school employs over 40 highly qualified academics supported by teams of skilled technical and administrative staff. The School is proud of its growing research base and reputation and long-standing history of working with local, regional and national industries through student placement, research, consultancy, short course activity and Teaching Company schemes. The School also has number of successful collaborative partnerships with business and industry both locally and internationally. – less–ZoomInfo
