Liverpool Hope University
With more than 7,500 students, Liverpool Hope University offers American students that rare chance to study on a campus and in a city, in Britain, with very few other Americans. Original home of the Beatles, the city of Liverpool was named European Capital of Culture in 2008. Liverpool has a vibrant city center that boasts more museums than any U.K. city outside of London, along with two world-class football clubs (Liverpool and Everton FC). Manchester is 30 minutes away and London is only two hours by train. Students may enroll in courses in a richly varied curriculum from psychology to dance to theology and marketing. Five meals a week on campus are included.
Junior or Senior standing; GPA 3.0 preferred, with substantial course work in major
9-12 credits depending on courses selected. All grades earned abroad affect your North Central College GPA when transferred back. Students cannot take courses pass/fail.

Note: Students must have courses pre-approved by North Central College prior to taking them abroad. If students change their course schedules while abroad, they must get this change approved. Some departments only permit students to take a certain number of courses that count toward their major abroad; by getting all courses pre-approved, this ensures that these courses will count towards their degrees.
