Liverpool Hope University

Liverpool Hope University College is constantly building on its history which dates from the mid 19th century, when the Church of England Diocese of Chester and the Roman Catholic Sisters of Notre Dame established separate pioneering teacher education colleges for women in Warrington and in Liverpool. This was at a time when women could neither enter higher education nor train for a profession. Just over a century later, a third college opened in Liverpool and was the first Catholic training college for both women and men. These three institutions - Warrington Training College (which became S.Katharine's College), Notre Dame College and Christ's College - have long and distinguished histories of their own. In 1980, a merger took place under the holding title of Liverpool Institute of Higher Education. What began as a federation emerged with a new, single, integrated constitution and name in 1995, as Liverpool Hope University College, the only fully ecumenical higher education in the UK.

In 1996, the College was awarded a Queen's Anniversary Prize for higher and further education and was granted the Freedom of the City of Liverpool in the following year.

Today, more than 7,000 students study at Hope Park (a 30-acre landscaped campus in Childwall), Hope at Everton (a second major campus opened in 1999), and Network of Hope locations for University of Liverpool degrees and certificates.

The common themes in these stories of Hope are the church foundation, the commitment to teacher education and widening community access to education, and the constant enthusiasm for broadening opportunities across arts and sciences.

Is this Academic Excellence?
For a University that promotes the high standards and quality of their academic teaching staff. I find it concerning when bringing the matter to the University's attention that you get a response, "The University has received no such complaints or information other than those from you. These have not been supported by evidence". Copies of Social Services and Police correspondence obviously were not good enough. To view the full complaint visit the "What do they know" freedom of information site. - read more...
