Hope is Liverpool's top University in 2020 Guardian League Tables

Liverpool Hope has retained its place as the city’s top University in the latest Guardian University League Tables 2020.

In the new tables, published on Friday, Hope is not only ranked higher than the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores, it also remains top three in the North West region.

That means Liverpool Hope is placed above Edge Hill University, Manchester Metropolitan, University of Chester, University of Bolton, University of Salford, University of Cumbria and University of Central Lancashire.

In the most recent Guardian guide, Hope also appears in the top 25 for six subjects listed, and is ranked eighth the country for Computer Science.

Hope are also ninth for Theology and Religious Studies, 13th for Geography, 14th for Sport Science, 16th for Education and 25th for Social Work.

Universities are ranked according to: course satisfaction; teaching quality; feedback; staff-student ratio; spend per student; average entry tariff; a value-added score that compares students’ degree results with their entry qualifications; career after six month and continuation rate.

The latest tables build on the successes in last month’s Complete University Guide 2020, in which Hope was ranked fifth in the UK for student satisfaction.

The University was also top in the North West in the same category - a guide to how satisfied students are with the quality of teaching they receive.

The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 also placed Liverpool Hope as one of the UK’s top 50 universities and 1st in the North West for student experience.

With a history extending 175 years, Liverpool Hope has a rich heritage that pre-dates many ‘red brick’ universities, but remains focused on the future.

The University has two main campuses- Hope Park, Childwall, and the Creative Campus in Liverpool city centre. Both have seen major investment, so traditional architecture now sits beside contemporary buildings and facilities.

Join us this summer at one of our open days, and find out why Hope is the place for you.
