International Exchange fee Package: Details

The Exchange Fee Package is a payment obligation, activated when an Exchange applicant is offered a place on the International Exchange Programme at Liverpool Hope University and accepts a contract to live in campus accommodation. The fee will only be cancelled if the applicant or Partner institution rejects the course offer. Later cancellations are subject to conditions, which may incur cancellation charges.

International Exchange students who live in private rooms off-campus do not pay any fees to the University, but should consider the additional costs and security risks associated with living in the community.

When you accept a place on the Exchange Programme, you automatically accept the terms of the Exchange Fee Package, which covers a range of benefits, wrapped up in one inclusive fee and explained here. The University provides airport collection on Arrival Day, accommodation, orientation, tuition, catering facilities and access to catering outlets.


As long as you arrive on the University’s stated Arrival day, we will collect you from Manchester International Airport and transport you to your accommodation on campus. A member of staff will normally be at the Airport and another will be at Aigburth Park accommodation campus to meet you.


International students normally live 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.

Please see our Accommodation page for further information about where you will live.

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 Exchange Fee Package. If you wish to upgrade to an en-suite room please email after you have completed the on-line application.


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 using public transportation, a campus tour of Hope Park and help with registration processes.


You will take up to four Exchange courses, making a total of 60 Liverpool Hope academic credits. You will be taught alongside full-degree seeking undergraduate students at Hope Park and the Creative Campus. See the Study Abroad and Exchange Guide for further information.


A meal package is not included, but a range of food outlets at Hope Park and the Creative Campus offer hot and cold meals, or drinks and snacks, to purchase. The Exchange Fee Package includes a Catering Card with credit equal to £420 per semester, to be used in the restaurants and coffee shops, the bar area and the Convenience Store. The card can also be used to purchase stationary items, gifts, or University branded clothing in the Varsity Store at Hope Park. Take-away food can be purchased from Our Place to take home for the evening.

Please note that the card 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 card 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.
