Courses at Liverpool Hope

In England, "courses" are referred to as "modules," and what we call "majors" in the U.S. are called "courses" in the U.K. Typically, students take four modules. Remember that Liverpool Hope has mostly full year modules and limited single semester modules. You may find descriptions by reading the course catalogue and course syllabi pages for study abroad students.  Please note that the campus timetable may not be available until a few days before the semester begins, so students may not know which modules they are taking until they arrive on campus.  If you have any questions, please contact Study Abroad and Exchanges.   


Students studying at Liverpool Hope will receive airport transportation, housing, and five meals per week (Monday-Friday) while classes are in session.  Arrangements four housing and payment are made directly through Liverpool Hope.  Please note that housing in Aigburth Park requires that students take a shuttle or bus to reach Hope Park where classes are held.  For more information on housing, please visit Liverpool Hope's accommodations website
