Liverpool the city just celebrated its 800th birthday. Aside from being the home of the The Beatles, Liverpool is renowned in the UK as having world-class museums, a beautifully restored waterfront, a vibrant shopping district, and two popular professional soccer teams. Just a couple of years ago, Liverpool was awarded Europe’s coveted “Capital of Culture” by the European Union. In addition, Liverpool is one to three hours by train or air to other favorite cultural destinations such as London, Edinburgh, Dublin, and Paris.
With the rising costs in the UK today, Liverpool is a great destination of study for the more budget-minded students. It was recently recognized as the number one city in the United Kingdom for the best value in housing, food, and entertainment costs.
Liverpool Hope University is one of Ole Miss’ longest exchange partners. Liverpool Hope is a liberal arts university with a proud tradition of over 165 years in higher education. With a student enrollment of around 7,500 students, Liverpool Hope gives students the ability to have a personal relationship with their professors and tutors.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses offered at Liverpool can be found on ther course catalouge section of the International Student page. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
All study abroad students are housed in residences within Hope Park or Aigburth Park. For more information regarding these communities, check out the accommodations page.

Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)

Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
