Address and LocationLiverpool Hope has two main teaching campuses. Hope Park is situated in a leafy suburb of Liverpool, while the Creative Campus is situated in the city centre. Both locations have seen major investment over the last five years, so that traditional architecture now sits beside contemporary buildings and facilities.
Background and HistoryWith a history stretching back to the mid-nineteenth century, Liverpool Hope has a strong tradition of scholarship and research in creative and academic disciplines. As the only ecumenical university foundation in Europe, the university's work has been shaped by Christian principles but embraces students of all faiths and none. Two of its three founding colleges were established in 1844 and 1856, and the third in the 1960s.

For the Hope Park campus visitors should travel to Lime Street then catch a bus to Childwall Valley Road or Woolton Road/Taggart Avenue. Alternatively, Broadgreen Railway Station is a mile-walk from the campus.
By Road: Visitors of the Creative Campus should travel to Liverpool city centre. Hope Park is situated on Taggart Avenue and is accessible from Queen's Drive (A5058) at the end of the M62. University residences at Aigburth Park are situated on St. Michael's Road, just off the A561.

All rooms include access to a common room, a laundrette, unlimited internet access, 24-hour security and the support of a resident tutor.

Courses and Fees
Academic Strengths and Research ProfileResearch forms a central part of Liverpool Hope's academic life and vision. The university collaborates with external research partners within the business and community sectors to pursue industry-specific study. In the past the institution has chosen to stay outside of university league rankings, in the belief that league tables do not compare like with like and are therefore of limited use.
Tuition FeesUndergraduate courses currently cost £9,000 per year. Fees for international students and postgraduates vary.
Financial Support: A variety of scholarships and means-tested bursaries are available to undergraduates and postgraduates. Check the university website for more details.
Academic FacilitiesThe university's Sheppard-Worlock Library has recently undergone major refurbishment and now offers a wider and improved range of learning spaces, especially for group-working. Laboratory and workshop facilities at the university are generally of a good standard. Other on-site Amenities In addition to various bars, restaurants and cafes, students benefit from theStrive Fitness Suite at Hope Park, a modern facility with treadmills, steppers, cross-trainers, exercise bikes and rowing machines.
Medical and Social CareThe university students' union provides a range of support systems for students, and a chaplaincy is on hand for faith-related matters and counselling.
