I have a confirmed place at Liverpool Hope, what do I do now?


My Hope

My Hope is the portal for current students at Liverpool Hope University. It has the resources and information that you need to support your teaching and learning. You can access your My Hope portal through the Hope website. Click on Student at the top of the screen. You should then see the link to My Hope in the box on the right-hand side of the screen. Alternatively, you can access it directly from here.

You will find Moodle, the University's Virtual Learning Environment which will support you through your programme of study. You should check that you have access to Moodle and that all registered courses appear on it.

If you have any trouble accessing these please contact our IT Help Desk who will assist you.

IT Help Desk: 0151 291 2100 or


Information for new students starting September 2017:


You will need to register for your studies. For this, you will need your login details for Hope IT systems. This information is enclosed in a letter from the Dean of Students which will be sent to your home address when your place is confirmed. If you are yet to receive your letter and think you should have done so please contact our Student Administration Team: on 0151 291 3331 or by email

When you have your log in details you will be able to access the registration screens through the Hope website. There will be a direct link on the front page or you can click through staff/student gateway (at the top of the page) then MyHope (where you will be asked to log in). When you are in MyHope you need to click on Student Record Management (SRM) to access your registration screens.


Tell us who will pay your fees

When you have completed your registration you will automatically be directed to our finance system and will be asked to confirm who will be paying your fees. If you are applying for a student loan you will be able to indicate this on these pages. Alternatively, if you or your parents/supporters are paying your fees directly you will be able to set up a payment plan.

Access your Hope email and your Moodles

Within MyHope you will be able to access your Moodles for each of the courses you are studying. It would be a good idea to start having a look at these, available from 20 September.

Within MyHope you will also be able to access your email. Details to access this is in your letter from the Dean of Students.

It is important to access both of these on a regular basis. The University and your tutors will use these to contact you and to provide you with information about your studies.


Go to the Library as soon as possible

A very important part of your studies here will be the information and resources you use to help you with your assignments, and may ultimately be the difference between getting a first class or a third class degree or a distinction at postgraduate level! Therefore, it is essential that you attend the SSWB Introduction (not sure what this is called) which will include a library introduction session this will be your opportunity to find out how to access and use the catalogue and much more.

There will also be the opportunity to have a tour of the library during the week beginning the 2nd October, watch out for signs in the libraries and on our web pages for more details.
