Arrival day

If you are staying in our halls of residence, please arrive on Saturday 22 September 2018 and go directly to your residential campus – for further information and airport collection advice see our Pre-arrival information.

If you are not staying in our halls of residence please go to Hope Park on Monday 24 September for the start of the International Orientation Programme.

If you would still like a place in halls, this might be possible and you should contact our Accommodation team by email accommodation@hope.ac.uk  

Arrangements for the start of term

The week of 24 – 30 September 2018 is our International Orientation Week. There is a range of events for you to attend – please see the Orientation Programme for more details. It's important that you attend any sessions that apply to you.

You will also notice that the University’s Welcome Week Programme is happening at the same time, including the Freshers Fair on Thursday 27 September and a range of social events at both Aigburth Park ad Hope Park, which you can also attend.

If you are taking a Level C (first year) course and can see a scheduled event on your timetable, you should attend any compulsory academic sessions that are listed.

Paying your tuition/accommodation fees

During the first day of the Orientation Programme, you will have an interview with our Finance Team to discuss your fees, which should have been paid in advance. The interview will vary from student to student, depending on your circumstances, but here is a guideline of what to expect:

One Semester Study Abroad students - your Study Abroad Package fee is due in full before you arrive. If you have paid, or your University has paid on your behalf, your interview will confirm this. If you have not paid and you are responsible for your Package fee, you will be asked to pay in full during your Finance interview (unless you are waiting for US Federal Aid)

International Exchange students – you do not pay tuition fees, however, if you are living in Halls of Residence, you will automatically be liable for the International Exchange Package fee, which should have been paid before arrival. If you have not paid, you will be asked to pay in full during your Finance interview.

Exchange students living off campus do not have fees to pay to Liverpool Hope University.

Full Year Study Abroad or International Exchange students – as above, or you can ask for your payments to be divided into two or three payments across the first two semesters.

Asking for Help

You are coming to a new institution and a new country, so we understand the challenges you will face and will support you with every aspect of this transition. We want you to fit in and feel at home as quickly as possible and the Orientation Programme will start as soon as you arrive in Halls.

You won’t know everything and we don’t expect you to. If you need help, please ask.

Before or after you arrive, you can contact the International Hub at internationalhub@hope.ac.uk where Carol and Eleanor will be happy to help you.

After you arrive, you can also ask for help at the Student Gateway Desk in the Gateway Building at Hope Park, or at the International Hub, located on the floor just above the Gateway Desk – we are always open for help and advice, a chat, or a space to study or have lunch.
