What happens after you have applied?

When we receive your application for a postgraduate programme, we will send you an acknowledgement email to let you know we have received it. We will then send your application and documentation to the Course Director who will make a decision on your application. We aim to make all decisions on applications within 10 working days.

If you are successful

Applicants will then be offered a conditional or an unconditional offer by letter. Most applicants receive a conditional offer, meaning that your place will only be confirmed once you meet certain conditions. Examples of the types of conditions you may have to meet include:

  • Completion of a first degree
  • Academic References

Once you meet all conditions of your offer, you will be sent an unconditional offer letter confirming your offer of a place.

If you are unsuccessful

You will be sent a letter from us informing you of our decision.

Appeals and Complaints

At Liverpool Hope University we are committed to the provision of high quality, fair and transparent admissions procedures and to consider all applications in line with the University Recruitment and Admissions Policy. If applicants have cause for concern about the way in which their application has been handled the Applicant Appeals and Complaints Procedure can be followed to lodge an appeal against a decision or make a complaint.
In the main an applicant will be unsuccessful in being offered a place at the University if they either do not meet (or are not likely to meet) a specific entry requirement or do not (or are not likely to) achieve the published standard entry requirements. Unsuccessful applicants are therefore encouraged to check the University’s website for details of both standard and specific entry requirements before requesting any feedback or lodging an appeal or complaint.  The grounds on which appeals and complaints can be made are detailed in the policy, but please note that appeals/complaints cannot be made against academic judgement.
