The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point has a direct enrollment agreement with Liverpool Hope University. This agreement allows eligible UWSP students to study at LHU for a full semester taking regular courses at the LHU campuses.
Liverpool Hope University is home to just over 7,500 students, and is located on two campuses: Hope Park, the main campus in South Liverpool, and Cornerstone, the Arts campus in the vibrant city center. The University has a tradition of providing higher education for over 165 years, and has grown from its' start as a teacher training college, like UWSP, to offering a wide selection of subjects. You can take most any course from their wide selection which makes it easy to stay on course to graduation. Liverpool Hope also prides itself on student support, with Dining in Nights (where all students in a residence hall eat together) every 2-3 weeks, to the wide selection of sports teams and clubs to writing labs and tutoring.
About the City: Liverpool, a port city on the Irish Sea, recently celebrated its' 800th birthday, and was named European Capital of Culture for 2008. Home to the Beatles, Liverpool offers a vibrant mix of theatres, galleries, museums, concert halls, bars, shops and restaurants in the cosmopolitan city center. The new Liverpool ONE development downtown boasts 1.6 million square feet of ultra-modern shopping and dining; for culture, Liverpool has more museums than any city outside of London, including an outpost of the world famous Tate Gallery. Sport is very important here - the city is home to two world class football (soccer!) clubs- Liverpool and Everton FC. It's also very accessible to the rest of England and beyond: Manchester is 30 minutes away, London is only two hours by train, and most of Europe is a two hour plane ride.
February 1 for the fall semester.
