            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
