About

With a history extending 168 years, Liverpool Hope has developed a strong tradition of scholarship and research in key disciplines. As the only ecumenical university foundation in Europe the University’s work has been shaped by Christian principles but embraces those of all faiths and none.

The excellent academic record of our students is supported by pastoral care and, as one of Britain's smaller universities, Liverpool Hope values the individual - in the words of Cardinal Newman knowing her children one by one. Care, concern and support for students are always a priority.

Liverpool Hope has two main teaching campuses. Hope Park is situated in a leafy suburb of Liverpool and is a mini educational village. The Creative Campus in Liverpool city centre is the home to our creative and performing arts subjects. Both campuses have seen major investment over the last five years, so traditional architecture now sits beside contemporary buildings and facilities.

The University places great emphasis on the bringing together of research excellence and top-quality teaching. This is facilitated by a community of academics and scholars who are of the highest calibre. This research-informed teaching enables our students to develop into rounded and employable graduates who can take their place confidently as global citizens in the 21st century.

Student life

Liverpool is home to over 70,000 students – making it an ideal place for anyone looking for a fun, friendly (and relatively cheap) student experience. Venues ranging from the huge Echo Arena to the University of Liverpool's Guild of Students play host to touring bands and artists of every genre. The size of the city means that huge clubs, quiet, hidden pubs and everything in between are available to students.

Historically a port town, Liverpool has reinvented itself as a centre of British culture. The city, which was awarded Europe's Capital of Culture in 2008, now has more theatres, galleries, and listed buildings than any region outside London. Liverpool is also very close to another of the UK's biggest cities, Manchester.

Liverpool Hope Students' Union is open to all members of the university. The union is a student-run organisation offering advice, support and representation to every member. Other union roles extend to the provision of social activities and this includes the organisation of clubs, societies and events.
