After your interview and once you have accepted an offer (whether with LJMU or one of our Partner Schools) you will have received an email from education@ljmu.ac.uk confirming your offer and the start dates for your programme. This email will also have included a booklet containing key information and tasks for you to complete prior to starting the programme. A copy of this booklet can be downloaded from this page too. We have left it in Word format so that, if you choose to do so, relevant tasks within it can be completed electronically. You can also click on the useful websites at the end in order to undertake any research required. Please use this booklet to guide you through the pre-course requirements and ensure that you can demonstrate that you have met all your conditions prior to enrolment. Please also complete the tasks required of you, so that you can start your programme confidently in September.

We also suggest that Secondary students download a copy of the relevant SKD* Journal from Section E. You could use this document to help you identify strengths and areas for development to work on in the first couple of months on the course.
