What our

Students say

I found ways to travel light, and walk far. I learned to read road maps, bus maps, train maps, metro maps, and maps of all kinds. I learned the fear and excitement of immersing yourself into a new culture. I will forever remember the memories, spontaneous adventures, and friendships made throughout this experience. Julie Johnson, Study Abroad student, USA, 2016

During the course of my stay at Liverpool Hope I have increased my business and management knowledge, refined my communication skills and have expanded my social circle. The staff and faculty at the University are highly qualified and supportive. The University provides every possible help and assistance to the students. Savitha Jagannath, International Masters in Business Administration, India, 2015

Liverpool Hope University does provide quality education and opportunities. Over here I learned many things and picked up some skills, such as doing proper research, giving presentations, socialising and communicating with other people. Chee Hoong Piong, Undrgraduate, Malaysia, 2015-16
