How to apply

Students wishing to study on one of our undergraduate programmes are required to submit an application through the University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). You can find useful information about how to apply via UCAS by clicking here.

Entry requirements

Access to Higher Education courses are a popular route for mature learners and carry UCAS tariff points that are accepted for entry to undergraduate courses. The required UCAS tariff points are 120 - 112. In order to convert your qualification into UCAS tariff points, you can use the UCAS tariff calculator. We also consider work experience as part of your application.

Additionally, applicants may require further subject-specific entry requirements depending on the course specification. For a full list of acceptable qualifications and offer levels, please refer to our subject entry profiles, which are available from the UCAS website or on the individual course pages of our website.

For A Level/AS Level and BTECs - The standard offer level is between BBB-BBC from A levels or DDM-DMM from BTEC, or 120 -112 UCAS tariff points.

In addition to standard entry, the majority of our courses have a Foundation Year option available. A Foundation Year is an additional year studied prior to commencing your full degree, and typically has lower entry requirements, usually in the region of 72 UCAS points. Successful completion of the Foundation Year will enable you to progress into the first year (Level C) of your chosen honours degree.

A significant part of our Degree with Foundation Year focuses upon core skills such as academic writing at HE level, becoming an independent learner, structuring academic work, critical thinking, time management and note taking.

If you have any questions about your qualifications, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Recruitment Team on 0151 291 3111 or enquiry@hope.ac.uk

Part-time study

Most of our courses can be studied on a part-time basis, which may be particularly suited to mature students with additional work or caring responsibilities. Although timetables vary year-on-year, part-time students are typically timetabled to be on campus over three days per week for up to six hours, although this may vary from subject to subject. Students are expected to spend around 18 hours per week studying, including time spent attending lectures.

Have you studied previously?

Accreditation of Prior Learning is the generic term used for the award of credits on the basis of demonstrated learning that has taken place in the past. If you have previous learning that is relevant to the course you are wishing to apply for, then you may be able to claim ‘credit’, which would count towards your chosen programme of study.

Our Accreditation of Prior Learning page provides further detail on how to apply.

Postgraduate applications

Postgraduates are students who have previously completed a bachelors (undergraduate) degree.  Students looking to study on a postgraduate programme at Liverpool Hope are required to submit an application directly to the University. For the majority of our postgraduate programmes, we require an upper second-class degree and you can find full details on our postgraduate applications page.
