Why choose postgraduate study at LJMU?

Proud of its heritage, LJMU’s School of Nursing and Allied Health keeps its sights firmly fixed on the challenges and opportunities of the future.

In 2016, we celebrated 25 years of providing nurse and midwifery education. Now, just as in 1991, the School is committed to working in partnership with health and social care organisations, providing effective solutions to meet the needs of the evolving health and social care agenda.

The School works collaboratively with local, national and international key stakeholders in: NHS Trusts, educational bodies, charities and community and voluntary groups. These links ensure our degrees remain professionally relevant and enable you to develop your professional network. We value our partnerships greatly, and our colleagues across organisations are key to helping our students get the best learning and development opportunities and insight.


Conveniently located in the heart of Liverpool city centre, the Tithebarn and Henry Cotton Buildings will be home to your studies.

Tithebarn Building is where you’ll undertake any practical sessions on your course. Our professional-standard clinical practice suites are designed to reflect the real-world environment, so student-led scenarios offer a more lifelike experience. The building is currently part of the University’s capital investment plan and is being extended to provide even more state of the art facilities and teaching space.

We also have observation suites, fitted with video and audio recording equipment, which support reflective practice and can help students gain confidence for their placements.
