Liverpool Hope’s creative community is internationally renowned and world-leading in drama research and practice.

We make use of the many theatre venues in Liverpool, from the traditional Everyman/Playhouse to the experimental Tate Liverpool as well as our own Capstone Theatre, several well-equipped studio theatre spaces dedicated for student use, and our very own Hope Theatre Company – of which you could play a part.
Throughout your time at Liverpool Hope, you will be asked to explore drama in relation to your own skills and interests, helping you to understand the critical place of drama in the 21st-century. Our motto is to ‘educate in the round’, meaning you will develop transferrable social skills to take to future employers and make a difference in the workplace.
Tourism is one of the world’s largest industries and has become one of its biggest sources of employment. Our Tourism degree examines the industry from both management and academic perspectives. It looks at contemporary issues such as the structure of the tourism industry; the relationship between tourism and its host environments and cultures; the evolving trends in consumer behaviour; tourism destination management and global tourism development.
Liverpool is an ideal place to study tourism as the city is home to a number of key tourist attractions in the UK, such as the Royal Albert Dock and waterfront, Tate Liverpool, Premier League football, National Museums Liverpool and the Beatles legacy. The city’s year as European Capital of Culture in 2008, has also contributed to continued growth of the city’s tourism sector. Therefore, due to the dynamic nature of the city’s tourism industry, there are constant opportunities to explore and investigate contemporary aspects of an international destination on your doorstep.
We pay close attention to enhancing your student experience and facilitating effective student learning. You will be taught by a team of tutors with a wide range of industry and academic experience of Tourism. Tutors take pride in being available to students and offering a high level of support. Our degree curriculum embeds material which aims to not only provide an in-depth, up-to-date knowledge on tourism, but also to refine critical thinking and develop your key transferable skills. We work closely with a wide range of tourism stakeholders to ensure that students gain insight into the ongoing management and delivery of a successful tourism destination.
