International (Incoming) Exchange Programme

The Exchange Programme offers four exciting options for studying at Liverpool Hope University and provides an experience which not only includes academic study, but allows you to immerse yourself in UK customs and history and promotes self-development through personal reflection and group activities, encouraging you to see the world from a different perspective.

Exchange students have the choice of living on campus (subject to availability) and paying an inclusive Fee Package - see below.

Alternatively, you can live off campus and pay the landlord for accommodation - in this case, no fees are payable to the University.

Based in a thriving student city and with traditional education values at the core of the Liverpool Hope community, we offer courses from a wide range of subjects in Sciences, Humanities, Education, Sport and Performing Arts.

You will have the support of a dedicated support team, the International Hub, from application to completion of the programme.

The four Programmes we offer are:

1. The Fall Programme (12 weeks from September to December)
2. The Spring Programme (12 weeks from January to March)
3. The Double Programme (27-weeks from September to March)
4. The Full Year Programme - participation in one of our Ba or BSc degrees (37 weeks from September to June)

Please read the Study Abroad and Exchange Guide for further information. 


For the 12-week or Double Programmes, you will take up to four different courses. You will be taught alongside full-degree seeking undergraduate students at Hope Park and the Creative Campus. 

The Programme offers 60 UK credits for the 12-week Programmes and 120 cedits for the Double Programme. We create a bespoke study plan for each individual student, chosen from a list of courses worth 15 or 30 credits each, taken from our Ba and BSc degrees.

The Full Year Programme offers 120 UK credits for a complete academic year with exams in a Ba or BSc subject. This is a great option if you know your Major and want to gain UK experience in your chosen subject.

Visit our What Can I Study page for full details.


As long as you arrive on Arrival Day (25 September 2021 or 4 January 2022), we will collect you from Manchester International Airport and transport you to your accommodation on campus. 


If you choose to live in our Halls on campus, you will be offered a private room at the Aigburth Park accommodation campus, which is about three miles from the main teaching campus (Hope Park). A free shuttle bus is available Monday to Friday during the day in term time, to get you back and forth to classes.

For further information, see our  page.

To apply for a room on Campus you must complete the on-line accommodation application at Apply for Accommodation

Room offers will be made by email and include the Accommodation Contract, which sets out the terms and conditions for living on campus. You must accept the Contract online and pay a deposit of £200 to secure your room - this is refundable after departure (conditions apply) and is not part of the Study Abroad Fee Package. 

If you live in Halls you will be charged a Fee Package that covers the cost of accommodation, day-time catering and a range of other benefits, including a shuttle bus to classes, allowing you to pay for most of the essentials in one inclusive fee.


The University will begin an international orientation programme as soon as you arrive. This will include on-site support at Aigburth Park, information workshops, local and city tours, including help to use public transportation, a campus tour of Hope Park and help with the registration processes.


A range of food outlets at Hope Park and the Creative Campus offer hot and cold meals or drinks and snacks to purchase. If you are paying the Fee Package, this  includes a catering credit of £420 for the 12-week Programmes and £840 for the Double Programme, to be used in the restaurants, coffee shops, bar area and student shops at Hope Park or the Creative Campus. Food can be purchased from Our Place to take home for the evening. The card can also be used to purchase stationary items, gifts, or University-branded clothing at Hope Park. 

Please note that the catering credit is not operational in shops in the community or city centre. There are no catering outlets at Aigburth Park. Catering in the evenings, weekends and the holiday periods is the responsibility of the student. All study rooms have access to a self-catering kitchen for making meals.

The catering credit is meant to be used in full during the Programme – any credit left on the card at the end of the Programme will NOT be refunded to the student. Students are advised to use all the credit on the card, but if any credit remains, it can be donated to charity via the International Hub. 

Immigration and visas
