A vibrant student city

A city like no other and a hub for culture, sport and heritage, the Rough Guide ranked Liverpool in their top three cities to visit in the world in 2014 and named us the fourth friendliest city in the world in 2016.

High quality teaching

Just 1 in 5 of the UK’s Higher Education providers achieved the Gold standard.

According to the government’s Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), Liverpool Hope University is, “of the highest quality found in the UK" and is "delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students.”

Liverpool Hope’s Gold rating ranks it alongside institutions such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, Bath and Lancaster.

Research excellence

We are in the top 10 of all UK universities for the percentage of academic staff with doctorates. More than a third of our research is rated as world leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework 2014).


We’ve invested £60 million in our campuses over the last 8 years. Our £8.5 million Health Sciences Building opened in January 2016 and our £5.5million sports complex is due to open in October 2016.

Top 2 in the UK for Graduate Employment

Top 2 in the UK universities ranking and 1st in England.

Latest figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), show a 1.7 percentage point rise on 2015/16 figures.

The 2016/17 statistics are drawn from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, which collects information on what leavers from higher education programmes are doing six months after qualifying from their course.

Name not a number

Liverpool Hope values the individual. We offer a collegial atmosphere where care, concern and support for students are always a priority.
