Liverpool Hope University
Here at Liverpool Hope University we strive to provide a supportive environment, where our students can thrive and develop both academically and socially.
As part of our support network, we have a dedicated member of staff who understands that from time to time care leavers may require a little additional support.
We are able to offer you accommodation 365 days a year for each year of your course should you need it, provide a link between the university, you and your local authority, or just offer a friendly ear if you need to talk.
There are also a variety of opportunities for you to get involved with alongside your academic studies such as: sports teams, societies, a service and leadership award, and the opportunity to participate in international volunteering projects.
Hope Works is the university's on campus employment service, matching our students with a wide range of part-time, paid work opportunities available at either our Hope Park or Creative Campus. These jobs can offer you great experiences and can fit around your studies and other responsibilities.
