Study in the great maritime city of Liverpool

From our Mechanics’ Institute in 1825 to England’s first Nautical College in 1892, we have a strong maritime heritage, linked with Liverpool’s place as a world-famous dock and commercial shipping hub.

The business of shipping is pivotal to the world economy. At LJMU, you'll develop an in-depth knowledge of the maritime business or gain the skills required to enter shore-based roles in marine surveying, maritime operations, port or ship management, consultancy, research and maritime education. Our courses can lead to successful careers in maritime engineering, ship management and more.
