Liverpool Hope University, England
Direct Enrollment Program - Fall Term
With more than 7,500 students, Liverpool Hope University offers American students that rare chance in Britain to study on a campus and in a city with very few other Americans. Original home of the Beatles, the city of 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); it was named European Capital of Culture in 2008. 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 in the university refectory are included.

Sunderland is a nice and quiet town. There is a nice mix of modern with the evidence of the history behind the area. The program takes time and dedication, but it is a wonderful experience that makes it worth the time that you put into it. It takes time to adjust to the culture and learn where to go for help, but once you're comfortable with the area and the knowing who to call, everything is wonderful. For students that want to travel while studying, Edinburgh and the south of England make for wonderful weekend trips. Europe is close enough for short trips as well. This has been a wonderful adventure, an opportunity that you wouldn't want to miss.
