Anyone know anything about Liverpool Hope uni? I got an offer from them and the more I look at the uni, the more I'm considering it if Leeds Trinity falls through. But I really can't form an opinion on it, their site is rather vague to me.
So basically I'm looking for opinions and information
How close is it to Liverpool city centre? (I.e. if I was coming up on the train/coach, how far would be it be from the station)
The university is about 30-40minutes away by bus from the city centre. The rail service is too poor to be relied upon. The nearest station is approx 1000metres away (or just over half a mile and is called Broad Green) BUT i think it runs on the same line as the national trains so it isn't too frequent. Last time I used it, it took me over an hour to get to the centre. BUT in fairness, the bus service around that area is great!! They have a service which operates every 5 minutes and another which operates like every 15mins. That bus stop is about 10minutes away from the university. If your feeling especially lazy though theres another bus which runs from the university campus which is every 20minutes.
I'll be honest with you though, try and avoid this university. It was ranked bottom of the league tables in 2008 and had their results blocked for 2009.
The students union is non existent. It is absolutely dead every single day. The radio station is barely alive. There are no clubs/bars in the immediate area.
The sports facilities are OK.
The toilets are probably the highpoint of the place, always clean and warm.
The library has a decent bank of information and so does their online facilities.
Their computers are dire, I think they are still running windows 98 and have majorly outdated equipment.
The people are all friendly
The lecturers are OK. But in all honesty, they aren't the most respectable lecturers in the country.
but man, if you do come here, your getting the first round
Haha to be fair i'm TECHNICALLY banned from our SU... about 3 years ago me and my mate (1st year at hope) got caught 'hustling pool' and were banned. But i wasn't a student there haha

Thats what I said
No offence to anyone who goes there like, but there is much more respect for UoL and LJMU both in industry and graduate courses.
I was just wondering why LJMU is so much more respected when it was ranked around 99 or 100 on the league tables, according to http://extras.timesonline.co.uk/tol_...rsityguide.php.
I'm guessing that it can't be that much better than Hope.
I'm not from the UK though, so I guess there must be some other reason why it is known as "No Hope University." I would really like to know so that I can make an informed decision on where I should go to study.
