About

Overview

The International Pathway (MARMI) is available for overseas students who want to meet the practice requirements of their home countries and who need a masters award to do so.

You’ll gain the knowledge you need to pursue an archives and records career in research, business, government, academia – indeed anywhere that qualified professionals are needed.

We’ll teach you to work in a way that provides the accountability and transparency demanded for good governance, effective operating public in an organisational context or which meets the needs of archive users in the wider cultural and heritage environments.

There’s a strong practical element and you’ll be attached to the Liverpool University Centre for Archive Studies (LUCAS) which coordinates our research and outreach activities.

Teaching at the Archives and Records Management from University of Liverpool takes place in interactive lectures or small-group seminars and workshops as we believe this leads to the best collaboration between students and staff.
