The Study Abroad Programme: How to Apply

We want your Liverpool Hope University adventure to start as soon as possible, so we strive to make the application process as quick and easy as possible. This section provides everything you need to make your application. If you have any questions, please contact us at internationalhub@hope.ac.uk

Applying from a Partner University

If you are studying with one of our overseas partners, you should discuss your interest in studying at Liverpool Hope with your university's Study Abroad Advisor. The Advisor will help you to check that we can offer the courses you need to transfer credits back for your degree - if you are both happy, the Advisor will nominate you to us.

At the nomination stage, we require a scan of your most recent official transcript - please send it, or ask your Advisor to send it, to internationalhub@hope.ac.uk

Applying from a non-Partner University

If you are not studying with one of our overseas partners, we can accept an independant application from you if you are studying on a full degree programme at a non-UK university, subject to you meeting the minimum entry requirements of the Programme - see 'Entry Requirements' below.

Please contact us at internationalhub@hope.ac.uk to discuss your requirements. If we feel that we can offer you the courses you need for your degree, we will give you the go ahead to apply.

Not sure?

If you are unsure whether your current university or college is an overseas partner of Liverpool Hope University, please check with your Study Abroad Advisor or e-mail us at internationalhub@hope.ac.uk and we can confirm for you.

Application

We have listed below everything you need to apply. The Application Form and Course Selection Form are electronic documents so, except for the Transcript, you do not have to send us anything in hard copy or by email.

 

Making your Application

Please read the first two documents before completing the Application.

Telling us what courses you want to study

Instructions about how to make your choices are included in the first section of the Course Catalogues

Please complete the Course Selection Form after agreeing your final choices with your home Co-ordinator/Advisor. 

Please complete the Course Selection form within two weeks of making your application. If there is a delay please let us know.

Timetable clashes

In order to avoid timetable clashes, we ask you to look at the Table of Teaching Days: Fall 2020/21 to check that you are not choosing classes that are taught on the same day. Instructions are on the document and there is a link to this in the Coure Selection Form.

 

What happens next?

After we receive your application, we will send you a confirmation letter headed 'Short-Term Study Visa Support Letter'. This will confirm the Programme name, the start and end dates and the fee. It will also advise you to apply for accommodation and a Visa - see the Accommodation Page for further information.

Throughout the period before you travel, we will continue to contact you with further pre-arrival information.

Entry requirements

You should normally be a registered undergraduate student in a recognised University or College with good academic standing and have:

  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 ('B' average) or results of an equivalent standard (please provide your latest official transcript)
  • One academic letter of reference from your home institution - this must be from your Professor.

It is expected that you will normally be studying with us in your Junior or Senior year but students in other years will also be considered.
