Overview

Address and Location

Liverpool 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.

With 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.

Undergraduate 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.
