School Description

Liverpool Hope University traces its history back to 1844 when its first founding colleges: The Church of England’s Warrington Training College and the Sisters of Notre Dame’s Our Lady’s Training College in the year 1844 and 1856 respectively. These two institutions were established to provide teacher education for women. A century later, Christ’s College was built opposite S. Katharine’s where Hope Park is today, admitting its first students in 1964. By 1980, the three institutes formed an alliance and became the Liverpool Institute of Higher Education (LIHE). LIHE later became a single, unified College and was given the new name of Liverpool Hope to represent the mission of the college. Liverpool Hope University was born in July 2005, when the Privy Council bestowed the right to use the University title. 

 Liverpool Hope University has evolved over its 170 years of existence and has developed a strong tradition of scholarship and research in key disciplines. Liverpool Hope University has two main teaching campuses which include the Hope Park campus situated in a leafy suburb of Liverpool and the Creative Campus in Liverpool city centre home to its creative and performing arts subjects. The University places great emphasis on the bringing together of research excellence and top-quality teaching. Liverpool Hope University campuses houses all modern state-of-the-art facilites for students including libraries, cafe, study areas, labs, a 25m running track and a double-height robotics and engineering room for drone testing.

            I enjoyed my time at Hope. Teachers and staff were all very helpful and friendly. The main campus is very comfortable and the library is well-equipped, with PCs and efficient borrowing system. I spent most of my time in the Creative Campus. Fantastic environment for Music and performance in general. I highly recommend The Beatles MA with Dr. Brocken.

            In my varied past I have studied at two of Liverpool's universities and worked at the other, so I think I'm in a pretty good place to recommend Hope University as a great place to learn.YSmaller than the other two (so students don't have to traipse across half of Liverpool to find the library or a venue for an exam, for instance), Hope has all the resources you expect from a competitive place of learning (well stocked library, good research facilities and computer availability) and staff who are knowledgeable and approachable.YLynda Fernandez
