We can trace our roots back to the Industrial Revolution. In 1992, we became one of the UK’s new universities, taking our name from one of Liverpool’s great entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Sir John Moores. Our current incarnation as a modern civic university demonstrates that we haven’t lost the pioneering zeal of our founding fathers and like them, we still believe that ‘knowledge is power.
The most remarkable feature of our history is the coming together of a wide collection of institutions and their associated academic subjects. Today, we are Educate North’s 2017 University of the Year and our strategic plan outlines our ambitious plans for the future.
